Dear Mr. Buckley,
Writing in National Review Online in February 2006, you William F. Buckley Jr. its Editor at Large and a diehard conservative icon, admitted that the U.S. mission in Iraq has failed but gave the following reason for the disaster;
â€œOur mission has failed because Iraqi animosities have proved uncontainable by an invading army of 130,000 Americansâ€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦they have not been able to contend against the ice men who move about in the shadows with bombs and grenades and pistols.â€

Since your chant has now been taken up by many Cons, Neocons and Repubs, the record must be set straight.
Mr. Buckley, your great country went to war with a nation that was already impoverished by more than 20 years of war and American led, UN-imposed sanctions. The immediate aftermath of the war found the traumatized Iraqi society without a recognized head of state or a working administration with well over 70 highly fragmented political parties pulling their unfortunate country in every which way.
â€œThis is the first time any Christian religious instructional video has recommended killing all non-Christians who refuse to convert to Christianity. It is unprecedented and dangerous.â€
