Note how the neocons, media shills, bureaucrats, and pseudo-patriots continuously berate the war dissenters and taunt them with their self-described, patriotic status. "We love America and you don’t," they sneer, in their pretentious, smug little editorials.

No Justice, No Justices--it's not just a wild-eyed idea from the fringe.
