Iraq And Its Lessons

by Randall Hoven - December 28th, 2008 - American Thinker

What went wrong in Iraq? Why? Who was to blame? Comfortably ensconced in my armchair on Monday morning, let me tell you what happened.

First, how do we know anything went wrong? We should not start out with the common mistake of comparing what actually happened to some impossible ideal. The "ideal" war has zero casualties. We need to compare what actually happened to other feasible alternatives. That means if you are going to criticize what happened, you must present at least one other feasible alternative that would have had a better outcome. (If you can't do that, would you please just shut up.)

I agree. Would those on the left who claim we should not have expanded the war against the Islamo-fascists into the Iraq battlefield, PLEASE SHUT UP.

This is a credible and intelligent assessment of what happened in Iraq. One of the key points is something that continues to outrage me about the liberal-democrat scum who hate our military and blame us for everything. They list as dead at American hands the Iraqis killed by Al Qaeda since the war ended and their subversion of Iraqi Democracy began.

How contemptible is that?
