A few days ago, fellow Blogcritic Brian Flemming published an article “How are you lying yourself to support the war?” Frankly, I thought it was a bit lame. Well, I can be just as lame as Brian. Therefore, I’d like to gather some short answer versions of the deceptions that people are perpetrating on themselves in order to justify not supporting the perhaps ugly and stressful but necessary rat killing we’re doing in Iraq.
Let me give you a couple to start off:
“Just because there are literally tons of WMDs and precursor chemicals unaccounted for doesn’t mean that the Baath regime might likely have such things.”
“George Bush was not legitimately elected president, despite having more votes counted in numerous counts and recounts by state officials and the media, so why should he get to make policy?”
“Blindly ranting against the president even with no proof or logical reasoning is proof of my extra high patriotism.”
“If we had just given diplomacy a few more years, the French could have intimidated Saddam into giving up the WMDs that we know he didn’t have in the first place.”Powered by Sidelines
