Now the Liberals who supported Saddam and wanted to keep him in power (why?) now have serious egg on their face.
If 100,000 dead Iraqis had also voted, I'd heartily agree.
Are you aware that number is roughly 5% of what the beloved Saddam Hussein is responsible for?
Are you aware the US refuses to release civilian casaulty figures? I wonder why.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
