Keith Olbermann On Our Meaningless Sacrifice in Iraq

Keith Olbermann had a Special Comment on sacrifice, responding to Bush’s plans to argue for escalation of the war based upon sacrifice. He questions the logic of various arguments raised to justify sending more troops such as “the argument that to take any steps toward reducing troop numbers would show weakness to the enemy in Iraq, or to the terrorists around the world.” Olbermann’s response:

This simplistic logic ignores the inescapable fact that we have indeed already showed weakness to the enemy, and to the terrorists.

We have shown them that we will let our own people be killed for no good reason.

We have now shown them that we will continue to do so.

We have shown them our stupidity.
