I fail to understand why this concept is so hard to get one's head around. Like Steve Clemons says, taking issue with the Iraq conflict (and leaders who supported it)
"has nothing to do with being 'anti-war', it has everything to do with being 'anti-Iraq War' and trying to prevent the same kind of dangerous calculus from being followed in the future."
Seems pretty simple to me.
Maybe we ought to use smaller words to get the point across.
Sheesh. How many times does it need to be said?
