A popular theme last weekend was, "War, what is it good for?" Well, the answer is that war's good for plenty of things. It freed and forged our nation. War liberated millions of black Americans from bondage. War stopped Hitler, if too late for many millions of his victims (peace at any price tends to have a very high price, indeed).
And our troops liberated 50 million human beings in Afghanistan and Iraq — who are far more grateful than the protesters or our media will accept.
In this infernally troubled world, war is sometimes the only effective response to greater evils. And there is evil on this earth. It would also be easier to sympathize with the anti-war protesters if they occasionally criticized the terrorists who bomb the innocent.
Correction: I initally improperly credited this piece to George Will. My bad.
War did not free our Country. It was actually the French. Without them, we wouldn't have won. There are other means. For many it is war but who are you to say your war is just? Do they not have an equal right to claim their war is just?
The greater evil has to be proven. How civil is it if I were to accuse you of being a witch and then we went down to your house and burned it down, with you in it? No trial or anything.
What you and your under educated cronies fail to realize is what you have done here today is going to reflect on your children.
You have been bad. The torture, lies, death and war-profiteering will be the legacy of this administration.
"War did not free our Country. It was actually the French." - Hype
The French doing what? Just being french, or were they engaged in something? Were they helping Americans with something? Maybe engaged in something beginning with a "w" and ending in "-arfare"? Possible? Would that then be considered a "war" for all intents and purposes? Yes? Then logically we could conclude that "War...freed and forged our nation," correct? See, logic can be fun!
Other than that, please continue ranting about witches and torture and cronies - it is mildly amusing in a sort of dog-chasing-its-tail sort of way.
