First to die for a mistake

Over at the Althouse blog, there has been an interesting rewrite of the infamous quote from  Vietnam-protesting, medal-tossing, enemy-collaborating F John Kerry. Back then he asked

Meade IM's a rewrite of John Kerry's famous Vietnam question: "How do you ask a man to be the last man to die for a mistake?"
The rewrite goes
“How do you ask a man to be the [first] man to die for a mistake?”

How indeed? But since it will only be a fireworks display, not an actual military mission with, you know, an operational objective and all that. This is just a hundred million dollar fig leaf to cover the mouthing off done by our lead from behind President. Plus the only people to die will be Syrian military and civilians, so who cares right? Gee where are all the lefty war protesters these days?
