Funny how the worm turns

The United States was in the Iraq War because of the September 11th attacks in which evil people killed many of us.

Even during the middle of that war, one Senator made this impassioned speech, and I quote:

"I don't oppose all wars. What I am opposed to is a dumb war. What I am opposed to is a rash war. What I am opposed to is the cynical attempt by Richard Perle and Paul Wolfowitz and other armchair, weekend warriors in this administration to shove their own ideological agendas down our throats, irrespective of the costs in lives lost and in hardships borne. What I am opposed to is the attempt by political hacks like Karl Rove to distract us from a rise in the uninsured, a rise in the poverty rate, a drop in the median income, to distract us from corporate scandals and a stock market that has just gone through the worst month since the Great Depression. That's what I'm opposed to. A dumb war. A rash war. A war based not on reason but on passion, not on principle but on politics."

That speech was given by Illinios Senator, Barack Obama.

Funny how the worm turns, isn’t it?

That's my point of view, what's yours?
