Christopher Allbritton is
N Demosthenes pointed out
a debate going on at BeltwayBloggers over the war,
with conservatives going back and forth.
Donny Ferguson is heading an anti-war argument that even I disagree with, but that's because
his foreign policy isn't really libertarian but pure interventionist neo-con, and he apparently thinks
the US should actually go back to actively supporting Saddam. And if it's
it has to go.
His argument against war is that Saddam is
better for US interests because he kills Islamic radicals, and he thinks democracy delivered at the
end of a US gun will lead to Islamic radicals taking control of Iraq. I doubt the US will let the
latter happen, and as recently occurred in Turkey, Islamist governments aren't always evil ghouls
in league with terrorists. I'm still waiting to see what the US means by "liberation", I really
don't think what Ferguson describes is a possible outcome.
