I go offline for a few days.

These articles are from Thomas Friedman.  Friedman is very liberal and I
think he shrinks from taking positions he might otherwise take because
of that.  But he knows the MidEast better than most others.

Sorry for the long Line.  The above bits are an excellent article for
why taking out Saddam is a really good idea, addressed to the Liberals.

Next, he has one for the Conservatives on the danger ahead.  He is dead
on in this one.  (I'm betting 70/30 Yugoslavia, BTW)

>From "A pro-American Arab Leader"

My response is:

We really don't want this, Mr. so called pro-American Arab Leader.  Nor
do the Iraqis.
