Reflections On The Iraq Debacle

Lest we forget how insane the right was about Iraq:
... here is the bedrock tenet of the Ledeen Doctrine in more or less his own words: “Every ten years or so, the United States needs to pick up some small crappy little country and throw it against the wall, just to show the world we mean business” ... The United States needs to go to war with Iraq because it needs to go to war with someone in the region and Iraq makes the most sense.
That's Jonah Goldberg, the Doughy Pantload himself. Not exactly a foreign policy genius...  Everybody who was clamoring for that war--and that means almost all the "pundits" on the right--needs to have his punditry/bullshitting card revoked.. What idiots. But they haven't missed a beat nor shown any remorse. Nor, in any case I can think of, even any recognition that they passionately advocated for arguably our biggest foreign policy error.
