If only I hadn't refused then to know what I know now

Kos makes an excellent point:

NC Republican wants US out of Iraq

Damn GOP hippies.
U.S. Rep. Howard Coble, dean of the state's congressional delegation and an avowedly strong supporter of President Bush, says it's time for the United States to consider withdrawing from war-ravaged Iraq.

Coble, a Republican from Greensboro, is one of the first members of Congress -- Republican or Democrat -- to say publicly that the United States should consider a pullout.

The 10-term congressman, head of the House Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security, said he is "fed up with picking up the newspaper and reading that we've lost another five or 10 of our young men and women in Iraq." [...]
Coble said he arrived at his position only after many months of searching in vain for evidence that the Bush administration had a post-invasion strategy to deal with the transition to Iraqi self-government.
For the rest of those still supporting Bush's War, come on in, the water's fine!

We support our troops, and want them to alive and in one piece. Enough have suffered from the incompetence of Bush, Rumsfeld, and the rest of the neocons assholes who dragged us into this mess.

So how do these chickenhawks rationalize their support for an unecessary, elective war?
Coble said that if he had known there was no post-invasion strategy at the time of the vote on the war-powers resolution he would have "insisted that we keep our powder dry while we do some probing and planning.
"Ahh, all that was needed were a few questions, instead of the muzzling of war opponents who raised these very same issues. Extraordinary bad judgment from a president and a party that have shown nothing but extraordinary bad judgment.
Well, only Nixon could go to China - without being Red-baited by Nixon.

Come on, Coble, how could you not know there was no post-invasion strategy? If I had time, I'd look to see if Coble made any speeches at the time about the people who were very loudly pointing out that there was no post-invasion strategy. Anyone have the time?
