A History Lesson From Billmon

Billmon briefly returns to refresh our memory on what the "Salvador option" actually means. (Thanks to Le Man de Poor.)

As you read this, remember this (accurate) characterization about the present day conservative view of our actions in El Salvador:

...many U.S. conservatives consider the policy to have been a success...

Get ready, Iraq! You have only begun to experience success! Soon you'll be so successful, Tony Robbins will be taking courses from YOU!!!

Many conservatives consider the El Salvador policy to have been a success? Huh? When did that happen? All through the 80s they denied that it was a policy at all.

The whole policy of supporting Afghan terrorists in the 80s certainly did not come back to bite us in the ass in any way, either. By all means, let's try that again. Yay.
