Live and learn...nah, just open gob, swallow air

Oh the profundity.
Yeah, not quite that simple...but it was tragic.

What can we learn from that about the stupidity of jingoism and not considering the consequences of our actions or the morality of war in general?

If you are Jonah Goldberg...not much.



"Every ten years or so, the United States needs to pick up some small crappy little country and throw it against the wall, just to show the world we mean business."
That was Jonah's endorsement of going to war with Iraq.  Now he gets to come back and pass judgment on other wars -- after all he's a self-proclaimed expert.

Say what you will about the Black Hand, Gavrilo Princip, and the Austro-Hungarian Empire at least they exited the scene eventually.

Der Pantload is, and always has been, a moron. If there's any proof of that necessary, it's that he approvingly cites a proto-fascist like Michael Ledeen.

Jaysus, if I had his understanding of history, I'd need his mother to find me a job, too.

This statement of malice and immaturity really defines him.
