War Blogging is Hell

Eric at Classical Values* has what may be the perfect post on Iraq and Viet Nam:

Where it gets murky is with the people who claim not to be pacifists, who claim to support necessary wars, but who don't support a particular war.

"Yes, we need to fight al Qaeda, but not in Iraq!"

This is logically frustrating, because we are in Iraq, and so is al Qaeda. [...] Ultimately, I see such arguments as being based on What We Should Have Done. "Should have" is no way to fight a war you are in.

Read the whole thing, especially you leftoverists.

* Yeah, a lot of my posts start out that way.
