Judging the case for war

The Chicago Tribune has a long editorial up, titled, “Judging the case for war“, that, um, judges the case for war in Iraq. Though one could quibble with a few of their conclusions – for example they make too little of Saddam’s ties to al Qaeda and make too much of alleged implications by the Bush administration of ties between Iraq and 9/11 – it is overall a reasonable and balanced assessment. In short, the president made a reasonable judgment based on the information he had available at the time.

All the “Bush lied us into a war for 0il” canards should be relegated by now to the kook fringes. Unfortunately, that still includes most of the leaders of the Democratic party – Howard Dean, Harry Reid, Ted Kennedy, etc. The American people will have to decide again in November whether they want people to be in charge of the national legislature who are simply unserious about the threats we face.

  1. You guys set a new standard for douchebaggery with posts of this execrable quality. The only redeeming thing about your abysmal blog is that nobody seems to be reading it. I think you need to spice it up a bit, try adding a dash of intelligence and a pinch of honesty. Good luck!
