This will be an interesting study in Republican hypocrisy.
We said Iraq had WMD.
Iraq said, No we don't.
We said "We don't believe you." So we invaded Iraq, overthrew their government, failed to find any WMD, failed to replace it with a more stable, democratic government, lost the lives of 3000 American soldiers, have a standing army of 140,000 soldiers baby-sitting a paper-tiger Iraqi government while we cower in Saddam Hussein's former palace in the "Green Zone".
North Korea says "We already have nukes! Don't believe us? Come see for yourselves!"
Have we invaded North Korea? Nope. This weekend they even anounced they had tested a nuke. Will we invade them? Nope!
Because we have the bulk of our troops tied down in a relentless rotation of meaningless slaughter in Irag, that has nothing at all to do with 9/11 or terror, but fulfills a personal, presidential vendetta of cowboy diplomacy while ignoring the larger strategic goals of long-term justice, impartiality, bridge-building and cooperation with people who disagree with us.
I'm SOO GLAD that we can claim moral superiority over the rest of the world.
