A Mind That Suits What doesn't kill me, makes me laugh... usually.

Thursday, July 17, 2003 :::
You know what I haven't seen? Remember 'shock and awe?' Lefties got all upset with this phrase, on the grounds that it meant all these poor civilians were going to suffer just so we could impress our enemies. That, of course, was a brazen distortion, as the reality was that we had spent several weeks leafleting the neighborhoods near military targets telling everyone to move. As the Washington Post reported at the time, the Iraqis had more sense than the war protesters, and left the neighborhoods. Only the redoubtable William F. Buckley, Jr, has revisted this issue, but the left's feet should be held to the fire on this one. They were wrong, and they should apologize. "Shock and awe" is what just war theory is all about.

Come to think of it... Have you heard any leftists yelling at Saddam for using some hospitals as torture chambers and others as human shields? I haven't either.
