What war-mongers never learn

Glenn Greenwald, Salon, March 20:

More strikingly, not a single one of them [pro-war media commentators] appears to have learned the real lesson worth learning from the whole [Iraq] disaster: The U.S. should not — and has no right to — invade, bomb and occupy other nations that haven’t attacked or even threatened to attack us. None of them say: “Wars that aren’t directly in response to an actual or imminent attack shouldn’t be commenced because doing so leads to the deaths of hundreds of thousands or millions of human beings for no justifiable reason.” Not even the most regretful war advocate seems to have reached that conclusion.
