I usually appreciate Conrado De Quiros’ columns, and I stand as a Christian against unjust war, pero sobra na po ito. With the deliberate comparison to Hitler, De Quiros is pulling a Godwin, which in newsgroup and message board culture usually indicates that a person is running out of more meaningful arguments for his stand. It’s worse than Krugman implicitly making a Marcos out of Bush. C’mon, Mr. De Quiros. There are far more reasonable arguments against the war than the straw man demonization of American political figures; we can do this without sounding like a Boondocks strip.
(Okay, “just-war” Christians, Republicans, Filipino pundits, Marcos loyalists, Boondocks fans… anyone left whose feathers I haven’t ruffled? Heh heh. “Left.”)
