For years the Democrats' talking point re: Bush's Iraq adventure was that it was "the wrong war at the wrong time." AfPak is their "right war at the right time."

In the sixties Democrats made the calculation that if they escalated the war in Vietnam, that would defuse Republican claims that they were weak pinkos -- and that would make it easier to pass civil rights and 'Great Society' social legislation. There are no doubt some Democrats who are making the same calculation now: Kill a couple million Afghans and Pakistanis and it will be easier to get "single payer" health care. Who cares about Afghans and Pakistanis?
