Commentary of the Day

A Kill-Lease Heel, on Abe Greenwald:

Hmmm…. just a bit too triumphant in declaring victory in Iraq, aren’t you Mr. Greenwald? There are still all of the characteristics present for many more years of civil war, religous conflict, proxy conflict, you name it. I personally don’t even believe that Iraq can or should remain a unified nation. The Kurdish issue is just one of many unresolved issues that will surely generate problems for this adminstration and those administrations that follow Obama.

To refer to the Obama administration as “pro-war” is also just a bit too much to swallow. While there may be adherence to some of the technicalities of a time table agreement worked out by Bush and Co., this doesn’t qualify BHO as being a pro-war administration. Far from it.

Full disclosure, I voted for Obama in 2008 and Bush in 2004. I like both men. I respect your ideological position in regards to Iraq, but you’ve gone down the rabbit hole with this post. I generally like your writings, so I’m not dissing on you. But man, this type of logic doesn’t do justice to some of your other work.
