Glenn Greenwald contemplates David Brooks' latest, and is amazed:
here's a person who is constantly advocating and justifying the killing, bombing, and slaughtering of Muslims, including well over 100,000 innocent civilians. And yet today he writes a column saying: Look over there at those radical Muslims; can you believe how degraded and inhumane they are? In fact, he says, "they"—those Muslims over there— "don't see others as fully human. They come to believe others can be blamelessly murdered and that, in fact, it is admirable to do so." That's from the same person who cheerleads for the endless deaths of Muslims and destruction of the Muslim world while thinking that it makes him strong, resolute, Churchillian, righteous and noble—exactly that which he accuses "fringe Muslims" of doing.
A piece I wrote back in 2003 on why being pro-war means never having to say you're sorry.
