Chicken ? la Iraq. Thomas Friedman is so brilliant and depressing at the same time. I’ve become a total news junkie. Will be interesting to see what happens.
This reminds me of the joke about the man who gets lost and asks a cop for directions, and the first thing the cop says is, “Well, you wouldn’t start from here.” No, I wouldn’t have — but here is where we’ve been put. So those who argue against the war have to admit that doing nothing now would mean perpetuating Saddam’s tyranny and giving succor to all dictators. And those, like myself, who have argued that removing Saddam is the right thing to do have to admit that the risks of doing so are rising so high, and the number of allies we have for the long haul becoming so few, that it may be impossible to do it right.
