Michael Totten on war:
I am not bloodthirsty. I don’t like war, and I don’t hate the people of Iraq. Not even the soldiers in Saddam Hussein’s army. I won’t enjoy the sight of falling bombs, knowing human beings are being killed in those explosions.
But I will enjoy seeing an enslaved country liberated from a tyrant. I will sleep a little better knowing those genocide weapons will be disposed by army inspectors. I will smile as aid workers pour into the country to rescue a long-suffering people.
And I hope to see our fiercest critics shamed. We are not the “real axis of evil.” We’re about to prove it by freeing and rebuilding what Saddam Hussein spent three long decades destroying.
There’s more. Read it all, please.
