Come on, William!
Despite numerous articles and copious amounts of information, William Raspberry still can't figure it out: I Still Don't Understand Why We're In Iraq
William, repeat slowly after me: we are trying to create the world's first Arab democracy. That's D-E-M-O-C-R-A-C-Y. It is a very important form of government that will hopefully allow the Arab world to solve its own numerous problems and not just blame them on Jews and Americans.
Oh dear. I still don't think William understands.
I have no problem with somebody who thinks our adventure in Iraq will not work. They need to be heard.
I have a problem with somebody who refuses to understand why we are there and what we are trying to do. That much should be clear to anyone by now.Every American should know why we are there, and should hope that we succeed. If we fail, the results for us will be very bad, and for the Arab world they will be catastrophic.
William Raspberry will be on display at your local museum someday, and example of the exotic beasts that once roamed Washington in great herds, and are now (all too slowly) dying out: Clueless Paleoliberals.
Ladies and gentlemen, step right up and understand that men like this once swayed masses.
Today his simple brain can't wrap around a basic concept like the importance of liberty. He is lost in the past, muttering about Vietnam, busing and the evils of Nixon.
By the way, please don't feed the tard. He's on a special diet.
