No, We Won't Be Quiet--We're Going to Shout EVEN LOUDER

If there is a more despicable neocon fanatic than Bill Kristol, I have yet to come across him. He was one of the principal advocates of our Iraq catastrophe. He has recently come out in support of attacking Syria. He is fervently demanding massive air attacks on Iran. He is, in short, a borderline lunatic who seems determined to drag this country into a third world war. Now he is demanding that the opponents of Bush's obscene "surge" (aka, escalation of the war) sit down and shut up:
[Kristol]: It’s so irresponsible that they [war opponents] can’t be quiet for six or nine months and say the president has made a decision, we’re not going to change that decision, we’re not going to cut off funds and insist on the troops coming back, so let’s give it a chance to work. You really wonder, do they want it to work or not? I really wonder that. I hate to say this about the Democrats. They’re people I know personally and I respect some of them. Do they want it to succeed or not?
Yes, the "Decider" has made his decision, so let's all just be quiet and let him piss away the lives of a few thousand more of our best and bravest young people. Well, to hell with that. Kristol has been proven wrong or just plain dishonest on every single point related to the war. He has gotten everything wrong. He has lied through his teeth about everything. Now we, the ones who have come to realize that the war was a tragic, unnecessary blunder are supposed to keep silent while madmen oversee the butchering of our soldiers and marines? NO. We will turn the volume up higher. We will be more adamant in our insistence that our forces be withdrawn from Iraq as early as is practicable and in a way consistent with the safety of our men and women. We will unconditionally oppose a widening of the war to include attacks on Syria and Iran. We will, in short, stand for sanity and the best interests of America. We will stop the Bill Kristols of the world from plunging our nation into further tragedy.
Isn't it something how generous chickenhawks like Kristol are when it comes to the lives of other people's children?
