I was furious after listening to Megyn Kelly‘s discussion with Alan Colmes today after showing a clip of Secretary Rumsfeld on The View. Barbara Walters asked Rumsfeld if he shouldn’t apologize to the American people for the Iraq War. Rumsfeld responded that would undercut the sacrifice of the men and women who fought, died, and suffered serious injury in Iraq. Colmes launched into a tirade about how President Bush and every senior member of his administration should apologize and ripped the Iraq War as a disaster, and that we should have never gone to war in Iraq.
Colmes and others who think like him apparently would prefer if Saddam Hussein were still alive, murdering, gassing, and torturing his people. They would be happier, as the Islamic world is in turmoil, if there there were no democracy in Iraq, if there were no example of a secular democracy in the middle east. When will the left ever learn the hard realities of the world. The answer to that question is never.
