No, War's Opponents Need Not Apologize

By Leonard Fein

Forward Association, 2003

In the weeks following the end of the 2003 Iraq War, a chorus of conservative commentators claimed that opponents of the war ought to stand up and admit they were wrong, that the ease of the invasion and the liberation of the Iraqi people vindicated the Bush Administration's decision. No, claims Leonard Fein. The humanitarian concerns and ease of the military victory are post-hoc rationalizations that do not change the fact that this was a war America never belonged in in the first place. Increased isolationism and a bully mentality, not the liberation of Iraq, are the true outcomes of this war.
