Cenk Uygur does the "turn the other cheek bit"
:It doesn’t take courage to throw a punch. It takes courage to take a punch.
We got hit on September 11th. And what was our reaction? Courage under fire? Grace through trying times? No, blind, angry, purposeless vengeance. Not just at our enemy, but at ourselves.
Of course, for Cenk's purposes, it helps to completely ignore Afghanistan, and so there is no mention of that aspect of the war, which Leftists have just about convinced themselves that they supported all along.What would have taken courage is a measured, just response. What took easy cowardice was fire in all directions. For the love of God, we attacked the wrong Middle Eastern country – and we’re not even sorry.
Can you imagine the reaction from the Cenks of the world if we had attacked the "right" Middle Eastern country? We'll assume that's Saudi Arabia; the response would have been that we were creating more jihadis (which would be true), that the government of Saudi Arabia was not anti-American (which would be largely true), and, of course, that it was a war for oil (which would be false).
