Hitchy's Ideal War

Many of Hitchy's points make lots of sense to me. Had Russia, France, and Germany stood with the US initially, maybe Hussein would have finally submitted to the 1992 cease-fire agreement. We can imagine also how the embargo against Iraq would have worked had those nations honored it, rather than profitted from it for ten years, then worked to have it lifted after 911.

Hithcy also points out that we have not yet analyzed all the captured documents, one of several reasons that nobody can be certain that Hussein really did lack those banned weapons that so many peaceniks insisted would be employed against invading US troops (as one of their endless objections to the invasion).

Hitchy's entire essay warrents a read by Unreformed Leftists...
