Um, someone needs to remind you that the media were among the Iraq War's strongest supporters. I suggest you look at this article, reading the whole thing.

Um, someone needs to remind you that the subject of my post was the Democrats, not the media (unless you were equating the two--in which case I might grant your point).

I read the article, and remain unpersuaded. Woods (and you) make the absurd claim that the MSM were/are among the greatest cheerleaders of the latest actions in Iraq. I grant that the WaPo editorialized in favor of it, but who else did so on a consistent basis?

LewRockwell.com is in general a good source of libertarian and constitutionalist perspectives on government, but I part ways with LRC regarding their reflexive opposition to all war. I agree with the principle that "war is the health of the state", but I disagree with what LRC seems to have concluded from this principle: all war is intended to expand the state, and thus all war is to be opposed.

By the way, Erik -

What, in your opinion, is the definition of the term "neocon"?

I accept Pat Buchanan's definition, as seen in this article.
