So this morning I read that John Kerry’s national security advisor has said that the United States would have probably been at war in Iraq right now had Kerry been President instead of George W Bush. Tell me again why we’re supposed to vote in November? I can understand why people think we should stay the course in Iraq given the stakes and our commitment, but who in their right mind would say that the invasion was a good idea in retrospect? I’m not sure whether it makes me madder to think that they believe this is an appropriate form of pandering, or that this is Kerry’s actual position. And as far as staying the course goes, the course we’re on right now heads straight over a cliff. Something has to change, either we come up with an entirely new plan or we just cut our losses.
