Running For the Right: Life and Liberty

My friend Brian saw the film We Were Soldiers and produced this statement in favor of President Bush's war. I think this emotional response to a movie is symptomatic of the emotionalism that reigns in the decision-making of some conservatives. The only meaningful insight made is that he realizes that he sounds simplistic, because of course, this argument is incredibly simplistic and ignores the history behind the situation is Iraq, the traditional formation of US foreign policy, and the issue of the secrecy that surrounds this administration. Of course Brian would disagree. |
