The conservative blogosphere was outraged earlier this month when an article appeared in The New Republic that made the shocking claim that war can make soldiers cruel. Has anyone ever heard such a mendacious slander on our military? Who could believe that our military is not killing and torturing only people who really deserve it and with the utmost civility and the best of intentions? And even if there are a few bad apples in the military, doesn’t the media have a duty to hush up their deeds so that it doesn’t reflect badly on the military as a whole and endanger the war effort?
Of course, the conservative blogosphere is frequently outraged when things don’t go their way.
Whoops! Make that perpetually outraged, since things never go their way.
Those who continously deny reality often find things not going their way.
