This is exactly the point I made in my earlier post in reference to the Clintonian Wars of the 1990's. You can't have it both ways, but watch, they'll try.---proto
Conservative Warmongers Have a Problem
Posted by Laurence Vance on March 20, 2011 03:08 PM
Conservative warmongers that supported the Republican-started wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have a problem, or at least some of them do. Rabid conservative warmongers who never met a U.S. war they didn’t like will consistently be cheerleaders for the war in Libya like any other U.S. war. However, other conservative warmongers who supported the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan but now question the attack on Libya have a problem. Although they would have no problem with the attack on Libya if Bush or another Republican president had done it, they can’t just say they don’t support the Libyan war because a Democrat started it. I predict what we will see are many articles from these conservatives trying to justify their opposition to the Libyan war because it is “different” from when we attacked Iraq and Afghanistan.
