The opinions on what should be done for and with Syria are as varied as there are people in the country. When you live in an open, free society like ours, you are taught that diversity of opinion is a good thing, and that no one’s voice should go silenced. Then again, we’ve also learned over time that some people are terrible people with even worse ideas. The men and women at the heart of the conspiracy to start the Iraq War are among those people, and last night on her MSNBC show, Rachel Maddow took them all to task in a rather unapologetic fashion.
Maddow was apparently as miffed as some of us were that people like Donald Rumsfeld and Dick Cheney have started to come out of the woodwork to criticize or comment on President Obama’s handling of the Syrian crisis, and she lit into the Neocon non-think-tank consortium that lied their way into Iraq, landing this incredible verbal shot across their bow,
“If you’re an architect or a conspirator or one of the primary actors in the Iraq War–in arguably the grandest and most craven foreign policy disaster in American history, your opinion is no longer required on matters of war and peace. Please enjoy painting portraits of dogs or something. Painting portraits of yourself in the bathroom, trying to get clean. Please enjoy the loving comfort of your family and loved ones, and your god. But we as a country never ever need to hear from you about war, ever again. You can go now.”
