Free Iraq


Here’s an interesting article from today’s Observer. It comes with that newspaper’s predictably liberal slant, but it makes an important, if obvious, point. The moral case for an invasion will be greatly strengthened if the successors to Saddam are democrats rather than strongmen.

Meanwhile, the prime minister of Iraqi Kurdistan has written a piece in which he wonders why the Left are ignoring the facts of Baathist terror:

“For the Kurds, weapons of mass destruction are not about dry accounting; they are tools of practical repression. Chemical weapons have been used against us more than 200 times.”

That’s worth remembering.
