The pro-war, any war crowd just can’t wait for more chest-thumpin’ fun! Arthur Borden, the author of “A Better Country: Why America Was Right to Confront Iraq,” rallies the laptop bombardiers and other Neocon faithful with this other-worldly, damn-the-consequences war whoop:
President Bush was right to confront Iraq. While the decision to go to war is in the past and cannot be reversed, the emerging consensus that it was a mistake is not. Unless we can revisit the debate over the invasion, and comprehend President Bush’s reasons for removing Saddam Hussein, we will be unprepared to debate policy toward Iran – and potentially ill-equipped to prevent Tehran from achieving the regional domination through weapons of mass destruction (WMD), which we denied Baghdad.
In other words: Forget the lies that led us into a counter-productive, obscenely wasteful war, and let’s get on with the next one!
I am moved to verse:
Arthur Borden took an ax.
He chopped and trashed some awkward facts
That halted Dubya’s Mid-East plan
So Neocons can bomb Iran.
