A Timely Reminder

Jonathan Gurwitz puts it well:

There is already enough tragedy in Iraq for Iraqis and Americans alike. In assessing what's gone wrong during the past four years, we shouldn't compound that tragedy by forgetting — or excusing — what came before.

In their zeal to attack George W. Bush, critics of the Iraq war would do well to remember that it was the Kofi Annans of the world and their realist abettors in the United States who allowed Saddam to rule brutally and slaughter mercilessly for three decades.


Those like Kofi Annan -- who seem to believe that Iraq was safer and better under Saddam Hussein -- should feel free to check out the grainy videos of hapless Iraqis being tortured under Saddam's regime here. And we don't mean the kind of "torture" that the left loves to invoke when it brings up Abu Ghraib -- as disgusting and wrong as it was. We're talking real torture.

The link didn't work for me. No matter. I have no problem understanding the difference between torture, and those techniques and practices the left likes to present as torture in their ongoing efforts to bash Bush.

Great post, thanks. Don't know if you've seen these two short videos from Iraq yet or not, but both show the US Military engaging in some very dubious actions. I have them up on my site at www.minor-ripper.blogspot.com ..You have to wonder what these soldiers were thinking when videotaping this stuff...
