The hideous memories of people cheering while we were incinerating innocent men women and children is unforgettable.Those same people now think nothing of burning the Koran, but would probably shoot me for lighting up a Bible. I sometimes wish they could be on the recieving end of an F-22 bomber at more than a flyover. The panic of imminent death or injury because you happen to live in the wrong zip code. Sickening.
And I subscribe to your psycho sexual theory of war. Beating up defenseless people somehow makes you more of a “man”. Now we killed that blank, lets go have sex. You know it’s true. And another thing…two weeks before the war started, the machoist people were afraid of the “drones” that GWB said were capable of hitting the US. These people had no idea how far Iraq was if they thought a model airplane could fly 1000′s of miles to hit us. They asked me how long the war would last, as a liberal, they wanted to get my input. I said the war will last four, maybe five weeks max. There is no way the Iraqi’s can stand up to us, or we’ve been ripped off more than I think. The battle, however, will last 10 yrs.
They didn’t believe me, especially when I predicted that they would find no WMD’s. NONE. They thought I was crazy. But it was physically impossible for the Iraqi’s to maintain the amounts of bio and chem weapons we accused them of possessing. Then there were the underground tunnels and the Olympic size swimming pools under the palaces. It was so stupid, scientifically impossible, yet everyone except a few believed it. Mobile Bio weapons labs? Even we don’t have them, but try to tell that to a panicked populace. Iran anyone? What if Congress declared war, and the President said no?
