Like the rest of us who have no idea why we invaded Iraq, and certainly don't know how invading it with wanton destruction without consideration of loss of innocent life was likely to create a pro-US beacon of freedom-loving Democracy in the Middle, I find it quite disturbing that MSNBC to give airings to these insane views.

More than that, it's important to remember what Melanie Morgan is referencing. The suggestion that Iraq should have been "blitzed" isn't a football reference, it's a suggestion that we should have emulated Nazi German's bombing campaign against the UK which wikipedia says killed about 45K people, destroying numerous properties and forcing mass evacuations of parts of London.

Hearts and minds, people, hearts and minds.
