You have much to learn, grasshopper

CNN has been showing this clip from a “first time voters” forum, discussing candidate preferences, reasons why, the usual. When the Iraq war came up as a subject, specifically “should we have invaded in the first place?”, some dude in the back gave the standard pseudo-humanitarian pro-war schpeil: “But it was run by a dictator who used WMDs on his own people!”

Question: How does someone flunk recent history so badly? You’re going to be helping pick the next person with access to The Button and you seriously think the purpose of the US military is to “liberate” people & don’t know that Saddam was a former friend of the US government? How do you manage to remember to breathe?
