No, not Howard Dean, Dean Barnett:
Let’s give the American left its proper due. They were right about Iraq inasmuch as it has turned out to be much worse on every level than we hoped or expected. But then again, the critics on the left were the people who pronounced Afghanistan a quagmire after two weeks. These were the same people who said the first Gulf War would be another Vietnam and claim 50,000 American casualties. Even stuck clocks are right twice a day. In the same manner, those who had been forecasting and pining for America’s comeuppance had to be right someday.Ouch.
