Bush's Murderous Vanity July 11, 2007

by Will

Conservative actor Ben Stein has fervently supported the Iraq war. In a recent essay, he describes an epiphany he had following a speech in Washington to a support group for families of soldiers who have fallen in Iraq:

?Why are we in Iraq? Most Iraqis don't want us there. Most Americans don't want us there. We are clearly not winning.... So, let's just leave and let them sort it out. If Bush is the only one who still wants the war ... we're in real serious trouble. This does not sound or smell like constitutional government to me,? concluded Stein.

With anguished reluctance, many other war supporters are coming to the tardy but welcome realization that we should never have invaded Iraq in the first place. For example: Republican Congressman John Doolittle of California, one of Bush's most loyal allies, now calls the war a ?quagmire? and urges withdrawal by the end of the year.

Is George W. Bush's vanity the only reason why Americans continue to kill and die in Iraq?

Let us take back the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free.
