Conservative columnist Paul Craig Roberts is my hero. The former Wall Street Journal, National Review and Moonie Times columnist, and Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan administration, Roberts has been steadfast in his opposition to the criminal war in Iraq since before it began. He seems especially pissed off in his latest column, which concludes:
Did the Americans who reelected Bush know that the president who will admit to no mistake is locked on a course that will squander a half trillion dollars for no purpose other than to kill and wound between 36,290 and 73,205 US troops, with "collateral damage" to Iraqi civilians ranging from 443,941 to 2,825,710 dead and wounded?
If Saddam Hussein is a "mass murderer," what does that make President Bush and those who reelected him?
