I'm tired of reading and talking about the war in Iraq, there's going to be one, it's going to be bad. Because it's a war, and wars are bad. Wars are not things to be entered into lightly, wars cost money, time, and the lives of soldiers and civilians. But it's going to happen, and when it does, I will shed no tear for Saddam. I'd say he's earned it.

And I'd say 5,000 Kurds would agree with me, if they hadn't been gassed by Saddam in a "Chemical Readiness Test" back in 1988 while 495,000 of their countrymen had the comparable privilege of merely being rounded up and slaughtered. The distant relatives of those people might agree with me, if their speaking up wouldn't get them tossed in an acid bath by Saddam's henchman. The families of Israelis murdered in suicide bombings would probably agree with me, too. You'd probably feel the same if your child died after some maniac blew himself up in a bus station, lodging nails and glass in your kid's flesh, and then you found out that the family of that maniac was getting twenty-five thousand dollars US from Iraq for strapping the bomb to his chest in the first place.

The guy wants to bring these spread these dubious diplomatic practices all over the world. And he's not even sticking with his old methods. He is seeking the means to perpetrate his acts of unspeakable evil in a new venue: ours. It's not that he wants to. It's that he keeps actively trying to find ways to do it. And that's why he has to be dealt with.

Said Donovan, in response to the previous post:

You're quite the war-mongering fascist for someone who has never lived through or seen a war. Be careful who you accuse of being self-righteous...

Ah, what a brave new world this is where supporting the military disposal of a real-life war-mongering fascist MAKES you a war-mongering fascist. These are some heady times, friends. Note that I stopped short of calling anyone against the war in Iraq a ideologically opportunistic lilly-livered Euro-bitch. War is hell. There are people with principled objections to bombing Baghdad (Radley Balko, one of my favorite bloggers, for one). I don't share those views. Although somehow being strongly in favor of taking out one of the world's bloodiest dictators makes me just as bad as the guy I want to fight. Maybe better word choice might be in order next time.

This isn't directly related, but it's brilliantly done: ANSWER was in charge of organizing many of this weekend's largest protests. They're a front group for a huge socialist organization, an organization that's come out directly in favor of well-intentioned socialism's greatest hits, like Tianenmen Square, Kim Jong-Il's regime, and Yugoslavian ethnic cleansing. Some, shall we say, interesting points are made pertaining to this fact here.

Well, that's enough pontificating for one evening. Sleep well and have a pleasant tomorrow.
