CLARK’S ANTI-WAR STANCE… OR LACK THEREOF… OR LACK OF LACK THEREOF… OR… EH, YOU GET THE POINT

‘Liberation is at hand. Liberation– the powerful balm that justifies painful sacrifice, erases lingering doubt and reinforces bold actions,’ Clark wrote in a London Times column (4/10/03). ‘Already the scent of victory is in the air.’ Though he had been critical of Pentagon tactics, Clark was exuberant about the results of ‘a lean plan, using only about a third of the ground combat power of the Gulf War. If the alternative to attacking in March with the equivalent of four divisions was to wait until late April to attack with five, they certainly made the right call.’

“The campaign in Iraq illustrates the continuing progress of military technology and tactics, but if there is a single overriding lesson it must be this: American military power, especially when buttressed by Britain’s, is virtually unchallengeable today. Take us on? Don’t try! And that’s not hubris, it’s just plain fact.”
