Warblogger Boasting-There's been a lot of gloating from the pro-war camp as of late. The one that seems the most telling (thanks to Julie Neidlinger for the link) was Best of The Web's reminding Janeane Garafalo of her vow to "go to the White House on my knees on cut glass" if the Iraqis celebrated American liberation. The one that's gotten a bit of indignant blogfire was Josh Claybourn's apparently e-mailing some anti-war bloggers with "I’m looking forward to your commentary on Iraqis celebrating the fall of Saddam Hussein and his evil regime." Darrin over at the Living Room was a bit ticked-“I felt like I'd received an email from a child gloating after winning a game of snakes and ladders...." I recall 1 Corinthians 1:31 "Let him who boasts boast in the Lord;" I don't see a whole lot of boasting in the Lord from the warbloggers. Josh isn't as childish as Bene made him out to be in the comments on Darrin's post, but a lot of bloggers (including myself from time-to-time) will tend towards a more-combative form of prose that can be less-than-edifying. There is a lot of pent-up frustration over how various peacenik opinions almost scuttled this liberation and the urge to see payback is natural; sinful, but natural. Payback's a she-dog, to be sure. Let God have any vengeance he wants to inflict upon the anti-war crowd (or on the pro-war crowd if it turns out we're wrong) and let us move on to putting out money where our mouth is and start to rebuild Iraq.
