We want war

The LA Times may claim that at least 50,000 Iraqis have been killed since the 2003 “liberation” – a grossly conservative figure, it seems – the Washington Post provides space for Richard Perle to demand US action on Iran:

I know it is not too late for us, not too late to give substance to Bush’s words, not too late to redeem our honour.

Perle and honour aren’t two words that automatically spring to mind.…  The fact that the Post still publishes people like Perle proves that the establishment respects individuals who express hyperbole and advocate war, yet refuse to take responsibility for their past, criminal actions.
