Oh shut up. A million dead Iraqis is not “pretty thin gruel”, and the fact that a lot of establishment hacks helped facilitate their deaths doesn’t make the Iraq invasion any more forgivable.

The fact that you’ve managed to dissociate from the horrors of what that war inflicted upon our species does not diminish those horrors.

I write about the end of illusions.
