Michael Medved (really, how did this idiot get a platform?) compares the Iraq War to…the Filipino War? I don’t know if Medved got the memo, but the Iraq war is, we’re told, in no way motivated by Imperial designs. So how it squares with the Filipino War I don’t really know, in so much as the Filipino War was all about subduing insurrectionists in the Phillippines after we acquired the territory in the Spanish-American war.

And, of course, there’s the war crimes.
