That major general Lambert doesn’t see the irony of his position is not surprising, as he seems to have quite strong political beliefs himself, the editorial’s title notwithstanding. But were I to address him personally on the matter, I’d ask him where he thinks the vandals got the idea that “oil” and a “Christian crusade” are the reasons we are in Iraq. And I’d further ask him if he feels that the 3-year long campaign to paint the war as “illegal” and based on “lies” has any bearing, in his mind, on how the soldiers might be treated upon their return.
Because I can guarantee him one thing: it won’t be the “neocons” who will be vandalizing memorials to fallen soldiers, or spitting on his daughter when she returns from her service.
