No Harm, No Foul

Massmurdering bastard Slobodan Milosevic croaks during his trial for crimes against humanity.

Lucky for us Saddam's not dead. Screw his trial. We still have the chance to undo our Vietnam-like mistake and put him back in power. No doubt he could round up his old Ba'athist crew for a reunion like some rediscovered oldies band. Everybody needs a gig, and besides, I bet those dudes can still rock.

Status quo ante. Between the copious contents of Saddam's mass graves and Bill Clinton (and thereby the United States) starving out tens or hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqis during the sanctions, the Iraqi people still come out ahead on this war and democracy thing even if we pull the plug now.

So, never mind. It was worth a shot. Peace, we're out, good night and good luck.

Kathy says it would be rum to give Saddam the lash (see post below), so who are we to argue?

What about the sodomy?

I think making that mistake once was enough, don't you?



"So, never mind. It was worth a shot. Peace, we're out, good night and good luck."

The neocons had their war and it was a miserable failure. They were wrong on every single aspect of it. Iraq is now in a civil war that is rapidly heating up (estimates put the number of deaths yesterday at 200).

The only question left is how long the right will try to stay in denial about the facts. Four years and counting.

Yes, and their biggest mistakes were underestimating the depth of the Left's irrational hatred of Bush and the degree to which the Left is willing to consort with the enemy.

Oh totally!

That and, you know, being wrong about the reasons for being there, the response to being there, our capactiy over there, and the end result.

The blame the war critics meme is amusing but doesn't really stick when the president's party controls the government. This is entirely your own mess to own.
