War against Iraq

Reader comment on item: War as Social Work?

Submitted by Samir Khalil SAMIR, SJ (Lebanon), May 6, 2003 at 14:09

Sir,
In your last article untitled "War as Social Work?", you say : "Gains to Americans and Britons from getting rid of Saddam Hussein and his weapons of mass destruction and sponsorship of terrorism seem to matter less than the outcome of plans to rehabilitate Iraq."

1. Where have you find those "weapons of mass destruction"?
2. Do you really believe that Saddam Hussein was sponsoring ISLAMIC terrorism? Is that serious?

Daniel Pipes replies:

1. Apparently, Saddam Hussein got rid of the WMD before the war started.

2. Yes, there is evidence that Saddam Hussein worked with Islamists on occasion.
