More Truths

If you have not read Juan Cole's essay tearing Jonah Goldberg a new one, as linked to in Fixer's post, do so now and come back after.

Wasn't that good? I wish people would do that kind of shit on TV so the Retard Right who support this war might see it. I liked this e-mail to Goldberg by the father of a Marine:
Dear Mr. Goldberg,

Here's a compromise to your dilemma as to whether to get your ass into the killing zone (more accurately, the be killed, be shot, or be blown up zone). Go to the nearest Veterans Hospital you can find, go up to some soldier or Marine who lost a limb in Iraq because his reserve or National Guard unit wasn't equipped with body armor or armored vehicles, and explain to him why we had to go to war in Iraq on March 20, 2003, and why we couldn't (a) wait to see if actual evidence of WMD's ever surfaced, and (b) wait until our military was properly equipped for the war.

By the way, I'm one of those parents who had to go shopping at home to send essential items to my son's Marine Corps Reserve Unit. And I, like most intelligent people with more than an ounce of common sense, knew without a shadow of a doubt that there was no military threat to the U.S. from Iraq, imminent or otherwise, when this war was launched.

Unfortunately, there are too many clowns like Goldberg who blindly support this criminal intimidation administration and not enough guys like Cole. Actually, there are plenty of them, but it's the wrong guys who get the mainstream access.
