War is not a game for vengeance and pride

12/28/2007

Once again, the tiresome argument that it’s somehow our obligation to finish what our soldiers fought hard in no matter the cost, is being bandied about. This time by some group called Freedom Watch. They play to emotion, putting out the sympathetic image of wounded veterans, reminding us of their sacrifices, and then telling us wars should be continued for the reasons typically given by some on the right; they also appear to be blaming Iraq for 9/11. It’s the usual bull. I agree with providing medical care to these soldiers, and I am thankful for their bravery, but we shouldn’t fight wars in the name of their sacrifices, that’s foolish and deadly.
