I'll get this out of the way right now:  George Bush is a stupid fuck
and I wouldn't follow him to a picnic let alone into a foxhole.

intelligent analysis that supports the idea of taking out Saddam Hussein
(and going even farther).  I'm pretty anti-war but there are arguments
to made made that sometimes its the best option.

I wanted to pass on a thought provoking piece that I read today
advocating such a position:


And Eric S. Raymond follows up on this piece with a bit about
imperialism and cultural genocide:


Is cultural genocide called for?  Is there a dangerous meme in
Arabic/Islamic culture that needs to be wiped out?  Is that even possible?

Food for thought.
