KUDOS TO L.A. TIMES COLUMNIST: At least he's honest. He opposes taking the battle to the Islamofascists and so it follows he can't bring himself to support the American soldiers who are on the front lines of that battle. None of this "Oppose the war but support the troops" stuff that Kerry, Kennedy, Boxer, Durbin, Dean and all the usual suspects stutter and stammer on a regular basis. Many find Joel Stein's views vile. I find them refreshingly straightforward. Still, it's evident he's pulling his punch when he says "I'm against the war. (I have no regrets) if this helps us get out of that war and bring our troops home safely." It's hard not to hear something very much like: "The more dead American soliders, the sooner the war will end. More U.S. blood, please."
