Shutting the barn door after the horse has got out

Isn't it funny that we are hearing about the pre-war bombing raids on Iraq, raids illegal under international law that were used to soften up Iraq and perhaps lead to retaliation that could be used as a pretext for war, at the same time as we are hearing (or here) about exactly the same type of 'pre-war' being conducted now against the people of Iran? Shouldn't the Democrats attempting to make a political issue out of the lies concerning the attack on Iraq have to prove their bona fides by making at least as strong an objection to the pre-war that is going on now, at a time when it can be stopped? Or is the sudden Democrat interest in the attack on Iraq just more bullshit partisan politics?
