Rethink? Not...

I've been spurred to come back by a post from Orin Kerr at the Volokh Conspiracy (one of my favorite blogs, by the way) re-issuing a set of questions from 2004 regarding the war. My previous response is here.

I'd just like to add that hindsight in a war is not possible. If it were, then how would judge other wars. If we had known that the Capital, the White House, and other parts of Washington would be burned to the ground in the War of 1812, would Congress have been so willing to go to war? How about the loss of life in the Pacific before we dropped the bombs? Or the loss of our soldiers in the Battle of the Bulge? Hindsight is for people who want to abandon something, like the politicians in Washington want to do. If they want to abandon their votes for the war, then that's fine, but it sure makes them look like weak-kneed turds in my book.

I stand by America's decision to invade. Yes, America's decision to go to war. This is not just Bush's war, but America's war. And for those that don't think so, Congress voted 3 to 1 for the war in 2002.
