Tough Stuff

Someone once said that linking to Instapundit is presumptuous. Be that as it may, it looks as though Mr. Reynolds got a bit angry with an emailer this morning. That anger translated into this post offering perhaps his most forceful statement yet on the Bush wars:
If Bush's effort [in the Middle East] fails, it won't be because the antiwar critique of bloodthirstiness and warmongering is correct. It will be because Bush hasn't been vigorous enough in toppling governments and invading countries in the region. What happens with Syria in the next little while may answer that question.
What he said. As bad a miscalculation as the Miers nomination is, I wouldn't hold out the hope that Bush has lost his nerve . . . not if I were Syria, that is.
