By removing Saddam, we undid the glue that held Iraqi society together and the end result is the chaos and anarchy that we witness.
Quite a change, that, from Ritter’s opinion six years ago:
No matter how difficult stopping Saddam Hussein is today, it will become more and more difficult, and extract a higher and higher price, the longer he is left to rebuild his arsenal.
Also from the above-linked interview, Ritter’s view on the patriotism of Gold Star mothers who support the war:
Waving a flag on the street corner does not make you patriotic or support the troops. I could train a monkey to do that job. You’re only a patriot if you’ve read the Constitution, and you live the Constitution, and I would say that Cindy Sheehan and those who support her, and those who speak out against this war are far more patriotic than any gold star mother or anybody else who stands on the street corner and encourages a war that’s based on a lie and can only result in the death and dismemberment of more American troops.
Remember that line the next time anyone on the left complains about their patriotism being questioned.
