It takes a special form of neocon to miss the point, and when points need missing, William Kristol is your man.
But it’s also worth noting that pissing has a distinguished place in American military history.

Patton later recalled: “I drove to the Rhine River and went across on the pontoon bridge. I stopped in the middle to take a piss and then picked up some dirt on the far side in emulation of William the Conqueror.
Did you know he was not alone?
Churchill had long dreamed of urinating on Hitler’s much-vaunted Siegfried Line to show his contempt for Hitler and Nazism. Unlike Patton, Churchill forbade photographs of the occasion.
Does the idiot William spot the difference?
Nope, he goes straight into whine mode.
Maybe, our current civilian leaders should spend a little less time posturing and a little more time supporting the troops who’ve been sent abroad to fight at the direction of their administration.
He must have mislaid his pompoms and forgotten his cheer-leading days?
As for the act itself.
Indeed, the foolishness of these few young Marines is as nothing compared with the foolishness of Obama administration officials.
Foolish? The video taping was foolish, the act itself, abhorrent.
Neither Patton nor Churchill urinated on the nearest German bodies.
You want to know why this event occurred William, it is because of blood soaked fools like you insisting on perpetual war and the incessant rotation of the troops into your goddamned mess.
The blame lies with those troops that did the deed, but it lies more heavily on the shoulders of those that ramped up the lies that put them in that situation in the first place.
