Reader comment on item: Profs Who Hate America

Submitted by Don MacKeen (United Kingdom), Aug 10, 2005 at 05:01

We now know Iraq had no weapons of mass destruction.

"Americans broadly agree on two facts about the Saddam Hussein regime in Iraq: its brutality and the danger it poses to themselves, especially the danger of nuclear attack. Disagreement arises primarily over what to do: Take out the regime now? Give Baghdad another chance? Follow the United Nations' lead?"

Americans +may+ have broadly agreed on these two facts (the first, that the regime was brutal was self-evident, the second, however has been shown to something other than a fact). I would be interested in what Mr Pipes has to say about this.

And why shouldn't people - linguists, professors, and otherwise express themselves on matters of importance to use all?
