Terrific piece at The Smirking Chimp by Ernest Partridge dissecting and discarding the excuses of those — you know who you are — who joined in Bush’s rush to war out of cowardice or good old American bloodlust.

Indeed. I might have fallen for the Bush administration lies about Iraq if I were still in high school, but there's no excuse for all these worldly folks.
And for anybody who thinks attacking Iran is a good idea, take a look at the devastation in Iraq: hundreds of thousands dead, millions of refugees, all those new orphans and limbless, the infrastructure shot, no jobs, no personal security for anybody, not to mention thousands of Americans dead, hundreds of billions of U.S. dollars wasted. I'm contributing to Iraqi refugee relief for the million souls safe in Syria but broke and wearing out their welcome, which in my opinion is what the U.S. government should concentrate on.
