Where is the noblesse oblige among my Pro-Military Action compatriots? Why all the gloating?


I have noticed a number of “Pro-Military Action” sites have been almost giddy with joy over the apparent destruction of the Saddam regime. I am damn giddy myself: nothing like liberating the oppressed to make you feel good about yourself.

But what is really surprising, because I find that whole “gloating” thing to be a liberal trait, is how willing they are to rub the anti-war movement’s nose in their most obvious poor choice of sides.

I know it’s hard to contain the desire to revel when you are right and they are wrong: I want to scream an “IN YOUR FACE MOTHERFUCKER” as I see the cheering Iraqis enjoying their new found freedom to loot and steal absolutely anything they can get their hands on. (I sure would be on a rampage. Man, I would stock up on toilet paper galore and some dishwashing detergent too, you can never have enough of that.) But won’t victory be much the sweeter if we show a little noblesse oblige towards the misguided anti-war fools?

No one likes to admit they’re wrong, especially the morally superior without a clue.

Can’t we all just get along?
