It's not easy, being superior......

IF your first impression was, "gotta be another left-wing moonbat", well, ok, fair jibe. Leftists do, generally, believe themselves to exist on some higher plane than Red Staters, Conservatives, and Fascists. And they, quite often, suspect those are simply stages in a metamorphosis.

I'm pretty sure I'm morally superior to anyone who says that being in Iraq is wrong because Bush hasn't produced any WMD there. I'll explain.

You see, way back when his (Bush43's) father was president, I was particularly incensed when Saddam invaded little Kuwait, next door. There's something about brutal sadists (or Saddamist's ) wielding modern weaponry that strikes me wrong, to begin with. When said sadists invade inoffensive neighbors, I just want to jump into the fight. That's my nature.

My son, who is now 24 and serves in the Coast Guard, was twice suspended (6th and 10th grades) from school for fighting. On both occasions, when I asked him what the fights were about, he explained that he'd had to..... some little kids were being bullied. I didn't punish him. The fruit had fallen not far from the tree.

Thus, when Bush-the-father took us to war against Saddam, I was all for it. I was less supportive when we stopped short of deposing him, but, a deal's a deal. Bush had agreed, beforehand, that the restoration of Kuwait was our goal and he must keep his word.

In the years intervening between Iraq War I and Iraq War II the US and UK maintained about 150k of troops, an air force, and a navy on Saddam's border, just to keep him honest. Conservatively, we spent about a billion a year for 12 years doing this. Conservatively, Saddam murdered 250K of Iraqis during that period, too. That's Saddam's nature. So what if he could no longer slaughter Iranians or Kuwaitis? We couldn't stop him from murdering his own, now, could we? That's how realpolitic works. We accept unconscionable acts, so long as we are not affected directly. We don't threaten the status quo, not ours or anyones. So long as we don't suffer from it, that is.

Then, 9-11. Realpolitic wouldn't solve this one. Only one thing to do.... go to the source. So we did and Afghanistan's bloody crew was thrown out or cut down. Attack me or mine and I fight back. That's what Bush-the-younger did, too. Bravo! When the Afghan business was completed, what next? Encore? Realpolitic again? You must be kidding! Realpolitic has outlived its usefulness. Its time had come and gone. What's the fallback position?

I'll admit it. I was surprised when eyes were next turned on Iraq. Not opposed, surprised. We'd been swimming in realpolitic for so long, I didn't think there was anyone in politics that had cojones. Ordinary people, like me, have experienced bullies and their behavior. We know they don't go away or grow out of it. It's their nature. Like a wolf that kills cattle, just because he didn't kill any while I watched the herd didn't mean he wasn't waiting for me to end my watch.

Saddam was active. He was undermining the sanctions on Iraq. Long before we knew how well they were being paid to do so, the French, Russians, and the UN were advocating elimination of sanctions. The US and UK, who'd watched the herd for a dozen years, would be told to go roll a hoop. The wolf would be free to roam, again. Realpolitic.

I never bought into the MSM line that Saddam had received 99% in his latest election. The MSM didn't either, really, but, they pretended it was true, for access. I was supposed to pretend with them, be more European, as it were. To stop pretending was to indict the MSM and all those who pretended with them for amity's, and profit's, sake. Any mention of real atrocity in Iraq was sub rosa. Some folks can live with such hypocrisy. I don't.

So, we invaded Iraq and finished what was started over a decade before. Maybe you don't agree with Bush' rationales for invasion. He didn't find WMD? So what? As I've already told you, I'm not with the pretender crowd. 270 mass graves later, if all you can raise in complaint is "No WMDs" then I won't waste time pretending that your sensibility is outraged. I'm your superior, morally. I didn't study for it. I didn't work for it. It's the mantle you gave me, by default.
