Dopey Philly.com Letter of the Week

Bill Franshel of Bryn Mawr apparently doesn't know what a "fact" is:

That is an ironic position for [columnist Charles] Krauthammer to take considering that he was such a champion of the Iraq war, a quagmire that the United States arrogantly and almost unilaterally entered without understanding the ramifications. The history of the last decade should make abundantly clear how foolish that approach was.

I seem to recall that, under the last president, Americans were supposed to refrain from criticizing the commander-in-chief while our troops were fighting overseas. Have the rules changed?

"Almost unilaterally," Bill? Uh huh:

Bush coalition in Iraq:

Afghanistan
Albania
Australia
Azerbaijan
Bulgaria
Colombia
Czech Republic
Denmark
El Salvador
Eritrea
Estonia
Ethiopia
Georgia
Hungary
Italy
Japan
South Korea
Latvia
Lithuania
Macedonia
Netherlands
Nicaragua
Philippines
Poland
Romania
Slovakia
Spain
Turkey
United Kingdom
United States
Uzbekistan

Obama coalition in Libya:

United States
France
United Kingdom
Italy
Canada
Belgium
Denmark
Norway
Qatar
Spain
Greece
Germany
Poland
Jordan
Morocco
United Arab Emirates

Oh, and Bill? The old adage is that politicians should refrain from criticizing a president's foreign policy while they're in a foreign land.
