What we’re losing

leave a comment »

It occurred to me today, reading these remembrances of Khalid W. Hassan,”Solid Khalid,” that many (most?) of those who have lost their lives in Iraq and will lose their lives over the coming months (years?) are worth so much more, as human beings, than George W. Bush, shallow, uncurious, cowardly, dishonest, uncaring, meanspirited, stubborn, petulant, self-pitying, whining wretch that he is. And yet it’s his war—and a war he keeps in motion so that he can hand it off to his successor and never admit to himself how wrong he was.
