Absolutely Nothing

Amidst the saber-rattling on Iraq, a fine, furious, gut-wrenching rant from a former Naval intelligence officer who knows whereof he speaks on the mindless claim by a draft-dodging Mitt Romney and all the other "simpering capering madmen" and "cowardly connected wealthy weasels" that "tragically, all we've fought for...is on the cusp of vanishing." Tell us, rages Jim Wright, what "we" fought for, and what it would cost to, insanely, do it again.

"How many lives, how much money, how many years? You look us in the eye and you fucking tell us."
