The real defeatists today are not those protesting the war. The real defeatists are those in power and their silent supporters in the opposition party who are reduced to repeating "Stay the course" even when the course, whatever it now is, is light years away from the one originally undertaken. The truth is we're way off course. We've stumbled into a hornet's nest. We've weakened ourselves at home and in the world. We are less secure today than before this war began.

Who now has the courage to say this?


The same people who said it before the beginning of the Iraq war? The same people who said, "Not in Our Name?" The same people who said, "No blood for oil?" Kiddo, if you didn't know what the war was about to begin with, you'll never understand it now.
