I keep looking for the sarcasm, but couldn't find it. That was in the Guardian? Oh, she is going to get flamed.

About the best defense of the war that I've seen. Better than Bush's, but then, a politician can't be that straightforward.

Rhetorically clever and facile, even attractive in some respects. But intellectually shallow. Her point four is completely off the mark and she shows little understanding of international law or history. She also completely avoids issues of future consequences of a war for both Iraq and the U.S.

Most papers and magazines have a token commentator from the other side. The Boton Blobe is a left leaning Newpaper. THey have a conservative editorial writer Jeff Jacoby. He is one of my favorites. But a couple of days after his column, there is almost like clockwork, a letter to the editor complaining about his column.

to war in here. Lots of anti-war strawmen knocked down, entertainingly, with gusto, for sure, but reasons to go to war?
I thought we all hoped that peace was the status quo. Maybe that's my problem.
