Historical Revision

Once in a while I encounter one of the more embarrassing elements of the anti-war contingent. By this I don't mean the silly but well-intentioned pacifists who are against war no matter what, but the ones who are anti-war only when an American Republican President engages in it. The latest meme to be recycled in this group is that Bush never said anything about freedom or democracy being a reason to go into Iraq. I say recycled because the same arguments have come up every other month.

These folks obviously don't have much memory, and are trying to convince those of us who are not so completely blinkered by hatred of any particular politician that we would forget words, that their version of history is correct. And while it can sometimes be fun, after a while it becoms drudgery. Well, Glenn Reynolds had enough, and rebukes the revisionists.
