From the desk of Lileks, riddle him this:

One final point: if ?ou?d lived under Saddam?s rule all your life, and you saw the Americans coming to kill him and his clan, and you believed in your heart this was really about oil . . . would that really matter? Would it matter to you at all?


Of course, as much of the antiwar crowd are willing to believe (or at least to parrot), Iraq is composed of millions of die-hard Saddamites who would gladly take up their pitchforks and tilt at B-52’s, giving their little patch of desert a bright new red color in order to protect the right to have their eyes gouged out and their children starved to death.
