Memorial Day Thoughts–Why? (Updated) 3

There has been no progress on the hypocrisy watch front, but Waste of Newsprint managed to write quite a good column this Sunday.

Not, of course, on his own. Because of whom he chose to interview.

Addendum, 5/29/07:

Brendan’s take on it.

    “All the while Lucas spoke, I was thinking of a friend who told me that wars are fought by people who are infinitely wiser and braver than the people who start them.”

    I don’t think I’ve seen truer words

    It has certainly been true of almost every war we’ve been in since 1945.

    As the Pink Floyd sang:

    The general sat

    And the lines on the map moved from side to side.

    the bullshit that spews from that shaved head fuck is astounding. It is as if he expects his readers to have forgotten that he was a previously a war supporter. “Previously”, I kid myself. “Continues to be a war supporter” is more like it.

    you know, fuck Smirky. I’m grateful I’ve never had to experience a war first hand. I feel sorry for anyone who has had to, from the soldiers to the civilians. How fucking shitty is it to kill another person because someone asshole hundreds of miles away said so? I can’t fucking imagine the number it must do on you.

    He’s so full of crap it’s unspeakable.
