Like most people, I get overwhelmed by politics since just about everything is open for argument – everyone has their own view and who’s to say one view is better or worse than another? Without devoting the time to research the issues, you may as well throw your hands in the air and go play some Nintendo. Tack on the sheer mind-numbingness of today’s political discourse in the media and it’s a wonder anyone follows politics at all.
But the invasion of Iraq and its consequences is – and was – an absolute no-brainer. This didn’t require any political savvy whatsoever, just a modicum of common sense. Of course it’s resulted in more terrorism. Of course it’s resulted in more pain, suffering and death.
I slap my forehead in disgust.
