I’ve been kicking around a piece for some time, spelling out exactly why I support the war in Iraq and exactly what the justifications were — and why they are as valid today as they were the day we invaded. But then BummerDietz over at Scylla & Charybdis goes and publishes this piece that shows the whole agenda behind the invasion. And here’s the kicker: it was outlined in open testimony to Congress, and covered extensively as it happened, back in 1998.
I’ll still probably do my piece — it ties in nicely with BummerDietz’s concept of “microhistory” and “macrohistory” — but in the meantime, go and read his piece. I give it my highest praise — I wish I could have written it.
