1. I posted this as Quote of the Day, but to be honest, the “criminal” part has been taken out of context: “a policy that has our soldiers patrolling the same streets in the same way being blown up by the same bombs day after day. That is absurd. It may even be criminal.” He didn’t say the war was criminal. He said it’s “criminal” to keep sending soldiers out on the same streets day after day and watch them be blown up (by the same bombs? I don’t think so 😉 Kind of like George Bush saying he talks to families who have died). Which means that sentence was really more criticizing the conduct of the war than the war per se.

  2. Our Congress seems to think opposition to the war(s) means the US should wage better, more efficient war and never, as you say, questions the rationale behind them at all.
