Rhetoric Only Gets You so Far

The Exile, a Moscow alternanive newspaper, has a highly interesting editorial based on America’s unwillingness to follow through with it’s occupation of Iraq. Writer Gary Brecher (a.k.a. “War Nerd”) takes off the gloves in his piece: “You Pussies!”. His take is that war is brutal and never pleasant, and condemns those who are backing away from their initial hawkish stance (based on recent polls). A worthy read which includes facts about lesser known occupations in history.
