writing there, not here
I've been involved in a comment thread regarding this post at Ipse Dixit. Dodd approvingly cited an article in which the author proudly accepts moral responsibility for the positive outcomes of the war on Iraq (Saddam was bad, Saddam is gone, yay) while, in my view, giving short shrift to the war's innocent victims. (And no consideration at all to the fact that Iraq is hardly "free" right now, nor to the potential blowback this war is likely, in my view, to cause, nor to the fact that "the oil wealth of Iraq has been saved for the Iraqi people" is far from a done deal, nor to the loss of irreplaceable cultural treasures as a direct result of invasion.)
If memory serves me right, an impetus for the "Not in Our Name" movement arose from survivors of 9/11 victims appalled by Bush's relentless waving of the bloody shirt to justify his attack on Iraq--which, of course, had nothing whatever to do with that attack
I think I've said pretty much what I've had to say over there, so I'll be focused here from now on. Still, I urge ya'll to check out the comment thread. The plumage of the hawks is on full display.
