War Fever

Feature

Friday, April 30, 2010

Occupy a country half-way round the world? No problem! Evan Thomas's new book, The War Lovers, looks at a key moment in military adventurism. Thomas tells Kurt how the war-mongering that drove the largely forgotten Spanish American War resonates with the war in Iraq.

Thanks for that. There are so many people that wanted to "kick ass' and they did not care about WMD or anything else either.

Then when the press made a big deal about WMD they would say "well I was misled" and now they pretend they were against the war the whole time.

They are such liars.

So thanks to the author for being the first news guy to admit this truth.
