Many of my liberal friends who were born in the 1950s were strongly against the Vietnam war. They thought communists were their parents’ boogeyman and didn’t buy the story. But now, thanks to NPR and other media campaigns, they fully support the illegal invasion and occupation of Afghanistan and other Muslim countries. How can this be? Now it’s about the good fight to bring freedom and democracy to the women of Islam. Intervention and ideology are two widespread and debilitating addictions.
