succumbing to peer pressure

I'll second that

Commenter "Old Hat" over at Atrios says:

"It'd also be cool if we stopped going on these messianic Victorian civilizing romps 'round the globe to teach the brown people how to be civilized and love Baby Jesus.

We'd have more resources left over to supply simple stuff, like, food to places like Haiti and the Sudan. Remember those places? Haiti? Sudan? Anyone?"

I don't think we are necessarily mucking about over there to teach them to love baby Jesus. We're trying to get them to quit blowing shit up. Just because Bush is a right wing fascist doesn't mean he's doing this out of religious fervor, why do the leftists always have to make it about such? A secular, atheist neocon would be just as likely to bomb the brown people out of simple human fear, suspicion, and hatred.
