After noting yet another Terrorist attack against Iraqi civilians, Belmont Club writes:

It’s hard to remember, through all of this, that it is terrorist groups who are actively, purposely and cruelly killing innocent people and that it is the United States led forces which are trying to protect them. Whatever the failures or inabilities of the guardians this distinction must never be forgotten. It is the mark of the moral corruption of the current debate that the ethical roles are often inverted by those should know better. That these murderers are evil should go without saying. But it is a terrible commentary on our civilization that it should now be necessary to repeat the most elementary of things: that the names of the guilty are not the names of the innocents.

If we forget this, then nothing is worth remembering.

This is what most Democrats have forgotten: “that it is terrorist groups who are actively, purposely and cruelly killing innocent people and that it is the United States led forces which are trying to protect them.”

The Democrats want to withdraw that protection as soon as possible. They would rather act in a fantasy world, where everyone is a nice little liberal, than work in a real world where evil thrives.
