  •  Bill Bennett, the great moral philosopher (5+ / 0-)

    really did call for levelling Iraqi cities, but only in retaliation (of course!) for killing American troops. Here's the money quote:

    Recounting the incident that led to a massive US military assault on the Iraqi city of Fallujah - and implying that the US response to the deaths of four American private mercenaries working for Blackwater USA was somehow mild, Bennett stated : "When four Americans are hung and the city cheers, you take out Fallujah. You level the city...." Bennett then cited the example of the destruction of Hiroshima. Bennett's exhortation to mass collective punishment - the slaughter of hundreds or thousands of innocent civilians perhaps, or at least the destruction of their homes and cities - received enthusiastic applause.

    How fortunate we are to have Bill Bennett amongst us, to teach us right from wrong!
