in his recent column in Counterpunch, Norman Solomon asks:
Say Norman, I've got a question for you. What would be a competent way of opposing the war in Iraq in an election year?
On Saturday, during her national radio response to the president, Senator Dianne Feinstein accused the Bush administration of "incompetence" in the Iraq war.
What would be a competent way to pursue the war in Iraq? How would you drop huge bombs on urban neighborhoods in a competent way? How would you deploy cluster munitions that shred the bodies of children in a competent way? How would you take hundreds of thousands of people from their home land and send them to a country to kill and be killed -- based on lies -- in a competent way?
Would it be competent to "oppose the war" by voting for a pro-war candidate who wanted to put "two new divisions" in Iraq?
Please, Norman. Rethink your own politics before you go slinging mud at Feinstein. Ask yourself this: would you support Feinstein in '08 if she wins the Democratic Presidential nomination?
