So Smart

The post linked below reminds me of that exciting time before the war. Aside from everything else, the pro-war conservatives and "liberal hawks" - even the milder ones - were just dripping with condescension for us dirty fucking hippies. Ultimately, I think, the Iraq war had to fought Just Because and that Just Because was some deep mystical truth that each war supporter had access to but which dirty fucking hippies could not comprehend.

5 years later they're propping up this Just Because with an ever more complicated web of Truths that only they and very serious people can see.

In other words, barking insane.
