THE ENDLESS RECYCLING OF LEFTY LIES: So this piece includes the bit:
Or as that deep thinker Glenn Reynolds once put it, gleefully: “More rubble, less trouble.”
Of course, as noted since, what I was actually saying in the quoted but not linked post was that if we failed in Iraq and Afghanistan, we might wind up pursuing a “more rubble, less trouble” policy at the expense of democratization. There was no glee.
But then, more rubble, less trouble is now the Obama Administration’s approach — what I called in the original “more rubble less trouble” post, quoting Victor Davis Hanson, a kind of punitive isolationism, so maybe I should take that as praise, not criticism. After all lots of things that were once decried are now okay since it’s Obama doing them.
