IS COLONEL SANDERS THE NEW IRAQI STRONGMAN? This quote by Joanne Jacobs pretty much sums the difference between the anti-war far left, and…well, just about everyone else:

When I think of “Western cultural values,” I think of individualism, freedom, democracy and tolerance. Anti-war activists think of fast food. And they’re not tolerant of Iraqis’ right to make choices about what’s for dinner.

Ouch. Jacobs adds, “Of course, anti-war protesters also think scenes of Iraqis joyfully welcoming U.S. troops are staged. They know better than the Iraqis how they feel about their new colonial masters, who will force them to eat fried chicken with seven special herbs and spices. With a spork.”

OK, I’m with them on protesting that spork thing…
