You want a flip-flop...

From the Heritage Foundation, Feb. 27, 1991
Political Errors at the End of the 20th Century:

"Yet presidents of the United States must not be encouraged to make Perpetual War for Perpetual Peace, nor to fancy that they can establish a New World Order through eliminating dissenters. In the second century before Christ, the Romans generously liberated the Greek city-states from the yoke of Macedonia. But it was not long before the Romans felt it necessary to impose upon those quarrelsome Greeks a domination more stifling to Hellenic freedom and culture than ever Macedon had been. It is a duty of the Congress of the United States to see that great American Caesars do not act likewise. "


Today, almost 14 years later, "conservatives" lick up the "bold vision of advancing democracy" like a bunch of salivating dogs.

Edmund Burke wrote, "The blood of a man should never be shed but to redeem the blood of man. It is well shed for our family, for our friends, for our God, for our country, for our kind. The rest is vanity; the rest is crime."

Advancing an ideal, however noble, is not a foundation for war.
