A much more lucid piece on the pro-invasion left from Johann Hari in the Independent today.
Nobody – nobody, not the anti-war movement nor Jacques Chirac nor George Galloway – was able to adopt a position towards Iraq that wouldn’t result directly in the deaths of innocent people. If we had taken the route preferred by the anti-war camp, people would have carried on dying at Saddam’s hands for weeks, months, years – and then died under his deranged son, Uday, and so on and on, corpse upon corpse.
