Thanks to Amy Welborn for her refreshing think-aloud on the rights and wrongs of attacking Iraq (entry for 26 Feb - no permalink):

The longer this goes on, the weaker the case for a war with Iraq gets, it seems to me, at least based on what we’ve been told so far. It also seems to me that the antiwar protesters are mostly mindless robots, a quarter of whom are probably motivated by anti-Semitism, the rest of whom are just plain stupid, dumb as bricks. But the defenders, while not stupid, and considerably more reasoned that the antiwar protesters, are starting to sound a little robotic – and strained - as well.

I cannot stop asking myself: Why Hussein? Why now?
