Larry Miller and Proof

Larry Miller has an article on the left and proof that would be rather funny if it were not so tragic:

IN THE COURSE of our adult lives, we all learn lessons about humanity that disappoint us, but, for me, this one has been stunning.

I swear, I cannot fathom the people who insist that Saddam Hussein is not going to merrily kill us and everyone he can reach as soon as he is able. What is it about some people that makes them live in this suicidal denial? I could normally shrug it off, except that now it’s not just suicidal. They’re going to get us all killed, and that makes it homicidal as well.

Go read the whole thing.

This quote about the “No Blood FOr Oil” and “It’s All ABout Oil” crowd is priceless:

Of course, what the “just-about-oilers” mean is that President Bush is going to get a skadillion people killed “just” so he can steal Iraq’s oil; and it may be overstating the obvious, but we don’t do that. The phrase “Spoils of War” is as dead in America as Cotton Mather. In fact, if there’s one thing history has taught us, it’s that the best thing that can ever happen to a country is to go to war with us and lose. This was so obvious after the Second World War that a wonderful satire was made, “The Mouse That Roared,” about a little, impoverished country that decides to declare war on the United States for the express purpose of immediately surrendering and being rebuilt afterwards with foreign aid.

    Larry Miller is the heat. He is the actual author of the “General Hawley speech” that gets emailed around every few months.

    You realize, of course, the statement that Saddam Hussein will merrily kill as many of us and anyone else he can reach as he possibly can is totally nutty.
