Don’t fall for liberal propaganda. A rational person evaluates actions in terms of both costs and benefits. A rational person understands that there are costs to inaction as well as to action, and that one is as responsible for what one allows as for what one does. Liberals make it seem as though the war in Iraq has only costs and that not waging war there would have been costless. Both propositions are patently false. That doesn’t matter to liberals. They have an agenda. They are ruthless true believers.
Keith Burgess-Jackson, talking about the insincerity he perceives in the left’s wringing of hands over the Iraq war. Don’t lefties know that only a complete idiot would not have seen through such a facade from the first instant, or, is that the whole point of it?
