RE: Why can't some people see that the Iraq occupation was a bad idea?
Reality is really scary for them. If they face up to the truth, which at this point is obvious, the conclusions that one must reach are down right eviserating. It is obviously true at this point that this was an engineered war, a project of a group of people, who intended to start a war in Iraq no matter what. Facts and situations were bent and twisted, like salesmen selling a product. The 9-11 tragedy was hijacked and its relation to Iraq distorted, again in the service of starting a war that had little to do with it. These are obvious facts at this point.
Why is this so scary for these people? Because to admit it was true is to admit that this country committed an act of mass murder in its blatantly illegal attack on Iraq. I have yet to see one line of reasoning, one salient fact where the people who support this war can justify why we had to murder people in a country at peace with us - and murder them in their beds and in their playgrounds. Not one shred of evidence has been produced by these people to justify this act of military mass murder perpetrated by people who claim to represent me. I hate them for what they have done to my country, a damage a million times worse than any terrorist with a plane could have done. These delusional bastards have turned us into Nazis. The only way for us to atone for this shit is to stop playing games and do the right thing, and have these people who perpertrated this act of mass murder and made us all unwilling accomplices to the murder of women and children who did not need to die impeached and arrested, and tried for treason, or turned over to the Hague for trial on war crimes.
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.
