Juan Cole - bonkers

Juan Cole's latest is, well just plain bonkers.

Slight problem with all his "what if" fantasising, Iraq had suffered under a dictatorship whereas the US is a democracy. God knows what his actual status is as an historian, he's not very bright.

You're deliberately evading and ignoring his point. His point is that his President and Commander in Chief is deliberately misleading the public about the real situation in Iraq.

This is pretty bloody obvious, unless you're so biased in favour of Bush you are prepared to ignore all the reports coming out of the Middle East.

His second aim is to make people think of the reality of what is going on, and that is laudible. It is all too easy for the rich, comfortable West to write everyone else off as if their lives are somehow less important than ours. Sorry, but that's wrong.
