Some revelations from Andrew Sullivan - "Faked" op-ed.
So far in the Iraq war battle, two major anti-war media outlets, the BBC and the Mirror, have been rocked. Tony Blair is still in office.

I've said it before, and it's worth repeating. It really is stupid to be passing such quick judgement on our progress in Iraq, people don't just say "Hindsight is 20/20" for the fuck of it. Only in the coming 20, 30, 40 or even 50 years will we see the true ramifications of what we've done here. My stance on the war is that, within those timelines our actions will be seen as a major positive.

Compound that with the stance of the anti-war left, with their nanosecond by nanosecond attention span (or lack thereof), and it becomes clear to see what it is that frustrates me so much with them.
