It's not that simple

Reader comment on item: Profs Who Hate America

I don't have time to debate Keith Phucas, but I just wanted to bring up that the war on Iraq might be justified if it was really about getting Saddam Hussein, but there's ample evidence to suggest otherwise. There are many dictators out there just as evil, and lots of threats more dangerous, yet we're not going after them. We wouldn't be going after Iraq/Hussein if there wasn't any profit to come from it or if Iraq wasn't a easy target. Yes going after Hussein is right, but the war on Iraq isn't justified.
