in response to reader comment: WMD.....only one problem

.... Saddam, for all his crimes and sins, was the most progressive ruler in the arab and muslim world and should have been co-opted. He was so corrupt and devoid of principles that it would have been possible to rope him in as an instrument against other islamic rulers who are all (in the long run) far worse than Saddam. The Iranian islamo-fascists are laughing in their fists. George Bush has proved to be their man.
