Quote of the Week: Ann Coulter on Afghanistan

Ann Coulter on the difference between Iraq and Afghanistan:

Bush declared success and turned his attention to Iraq, leaving

minimal troops behind in Afghanistan to prevent Osama bin Laden from

regrouping, swat down al-Qaida fighters and gather intelligence.

Having some vague concept of America’s national interest – unlike

liberals – the Bush administration could see that a country of

illiterate peasants living in caves ruled by “warlords” was not a primo

target for “nation-building.”

By contrast, Iraq had a young, educated, pro-Western populace

that was ideal for regime change.

You have to give it to Ann, she will always find a way of making whatever point she is trying to convey utterly offensive, racist and childishly stupid.

Ben Cohen is the editor and founder of The Daily Banter. He lives in Washington DC where he does podcasts, teaches Martial Arts, and tries to be a good father. He would be extremely disturbed if you took him too seriously.
