what he said
On the eve of war, some people are downright indecently eager for hostilities to commence. I'm too disgusted even to pity them.
On the other hand, The Road to Surfdom precisely sums up how I'm feeling at the moment:
You know, after all the build-up and the endless argument, I actually thought there might be a sense of relief in such a moment, just a vague feeling that, well, at least the discussion is over.
But I'm not relieved. I just feel sick, genuinely sick in my stomach.
...[T]he Bush Administration and the various "hawks" who have supported it, have got their war. May it be the quick, unalloyed success they have promised us.
