Joel Stein opposes all wars, except Osama supported wars

The LA Times article by Joel Stein has some applauding his honesty in admitting that he doesn't "Support the Troops". In subsequent interviews it is clear he is confused about his own feelings and thoughts and is pretty much unclear about just what he thinks about his country's role in the world today.

On Hugh Hewitt's Radio program today, he said he does not support any American military role ever outside of the US. Strangely enough, in his article he implies that the Kosovo war was a moral war.

But when you volunteer for the U.S. military, you pretty much know you're not going to be fending off invasions from Mexico and Canada. So you're willingly signing up to be a fighting tool of American imperialism, for better or worse. Sometimes you get lucky and get to fight ethnic genocide in Kosovo, but other times it's Vietnam.

Is it a coincidence that the Kosovo War was Bill Clinton's effort at fighting a "Good War". Talk about a War based on lies. The Clinton administration called it the war to prevent Genocide, but most estimates of civilian killings prior to the war are between 2000 and 3000, much less than the 100s of thousands that administration promised.

Bill Clinton summed up the war this way:

After the war was over, on June 25, Bill Clinton told a White House press conference that on Slobodan Milosevic's orders "tens of thousands of people" had been killed in Kosovo.

One common estimate of the number of Kosovar Albanians killed in the year before the bombing is 2,500.

I honor the Soldiers that did what they were ordered to do under Clinton, but it was a misguided choice for Clinton to go to war. The KLA openly admitted that they flooded into Kosovo prior to the war in an effort to draw international sympathy and draw the US and NATO in militarily to legitimize their annexation of Kosovo and turn it into an islamic state. We now know that Osama Bin Laden was actively supporting the Islamic terrorists in the KLA as they moved to get an independent state and springboard to launch an islamic effort to destabilize the region and Europe as a whole.

So we have Joel Stein who clearly stated that he did not support the US invasion of Afghanistan and the attacks on Al Qaeda, but he does support the morality of Osama Bin Laden in his efforts to turn Europe into a Taliban style Islamic state.

He claims that the Army is full of people ignoring morality. Please, explain to me how this man is not completely confused about what is in his own head? I personally consider the LA Times ill served by an OP-ED writer who has such a crippled moral compass, but worse than that, the LA Times is just stupendously foolish to pay a salary for someone to express his opinions on national issues, when the writer is so clearly ignorant about what his opinions really are and why he harbors them.
