Must You Crap On Everything?

There seems to be a new talking point spreading through the left now that Iraqis have voted. You may have seen something like this:

"Sure, it's great that Iraq is free, but we didn't go there to liberate people! We went looking for weapons of mass destruction! That was the only reason we went to war, and Bush lied!!!"

To that, I say:

The war was called "Operation Iraqi Freedom." Unless that meant that we were going to "free" the WMD, I'm pretty sure we invaded with the intention of eliminating Saddam so Iraqis could have a democratic country.

I mean...come on. I'm probably one of the most cynical, pessimistic people on this planet, and even I think the neolibs need to lighten up.

Should I bring it back?

"The war in Iraq won't be successful until they have a space program!"

Some morons won't be happy no matter how much good we do. Screw 'em.

CD, Thank you for reminding us that the mission is called Operation: Iraqi Freedom. Even I, a few days ago, began to doubt my memory of the pre-war debate, and decided to look back into my archives from two years ago. The result is THIS post. It's two *click* two *click* two posts in one!
