Lies! Lies, I Tell You!

As I mentioned earlier, I was listening to commie radio the other night. I'm not sure which show, maybe Counterspin, maybe not. The lefty of the hour made a rather startling statement. I can't quote it exactly, but it was something like "All the reasons for going to war in Iraq have turned out to be lies."

Wow. I must not have been paying attention. I was lied to about the 12 years of failing to comply with Security Council resolutions and the terms of the 1991 cease-fire? Damn, Goebbels was right. The big lie is the way to go, seeing as the rest of the freaking world believes that, too. I seem to recall that people were using chemical weapons in roadside IEDs, so there are some WMDs still floating around. Hmm. Maybe I was hallucinating when the Coalition found mass graves. I'm just another gullible American, I guess. Maybe if I lived in Europe or had my head so far up my ass that socialism seems like a good idea I wouldn't be so gullible.

Of course, I don't figure that the President was making the case for war to me, anyway. He was talking to the rest of y'all. I'm one of the people that didn't need convincing. My response upon hearing of the proposed operation was "It's about damn time." I was standing on the ground in 1991 when we were 36 hours out from Baghdad with nothing between us and the city but a whole bunch of sand and fleeing Republican Guards. I thought at the time we should finish the job or it would come back to bite us in the ass.
