Reader comment on item: Iraq's Weapons & The Road to War

Submitted by Larry Rogul (United States), Jun 3, 2003 at 19:47

Your premise that the real reason we went into Iraq was that Hussein had broken his agreements according to the peace terms of the original Gulf War is a reasonable one.

Why is it acceptable (and it certainly is) for the U.S. to do this against Iraq but not for Israel to do it against the Palestinians? Talk about being lied to! Talk about the bigotry of low (or no) expectations! Have we gotten so used to Arabs lies and failure to meet commitments that their continued mendacity and duplicity is no longer worth considering?
