Josh is pissed, and so am I.
I don't think any pro-war folks check in here very often, but just in case, do you get it now? It's not just about staying within framework of the UN, or containing rather than attacking, or even preserving human life on both sides. It's about the fact that any war against any regime, no matter how small or vulnerable, spearheaded by this administration is bound to go badly. It's as simple as that. There is no good reason that things should have spiraled out of control within a week's time.
It's fun to laugh and shrug at Bush's smirk or Rummy's grimace when the stakes aren't so high, but when we stand to lose up to 12,000 people, don't you think it's time we put some grownups in charge?
