Call me irresponsible, but I believed at the time that Hans Blix was substantially correct, and doing a very good job. It turns out I was right.

At the time I believed that Bush was pursueing a separate agenda to the operation against al Qae'ida that had exactly zero to do with makeing us safer. Indeed, at the time I typified it as about oil and regional control. It turns out I was at least mostly right.

It took me a while to figure out the whole tank the economy to create a new class of military recruit, the unemployed downwardly mobile young urbanite. We are now being punished for letting Bill Clinton delay the Carlysle/Halliburton/Bechtel plan to bring in the era of oil scarcity for 9 long years. Barb is so proud.

But now we have planted the seeds of instablity in the region, indeed, the chance of nuclear exchange between two or more regional powers by the end of the decade seems almost inescapable. Sadly, so does the chance for one or more of them to nuke us, as well.
