According to Friedman, the real problem is that the United States was too slow to invade.
In a column headlined, “The Suicide Supply Chain,” he writes, “You see, we didn’t invade Iraq too soon. We actually invaded 10 years too late.”
Or 20 Friedman units too late, if you will.
Just to be clear, “Suicide Supply Chain” was not the title of a Judas Priest song, but maybe it should have been.
