Stanley Kurtz Tells Cindy Sheehan Why Her Son Died

Kurtz writes crap at National Review. Today he told Cindy Sheehan and all the families of the 2,377 U.S. troops who have died in Iraq why their deaths were necessary: To prove ours is bigger than Iran's or any other country's.

We need to see peace and democracy in Iraq is icing on the cake. The real goal is the proof of resolve against Iran and others. If the public sees that, it might change its view of what’s important and what success means.

Yes, America sent 2,377 individuals to die, and thousands of others to be maimed, only to "prove" our "resolve against Iran and others." Evidently neocon chickenhawks believe people must die just to show that "we" are the toughest bastards on the block.

Is this what you believe? Is this the America you want?
