It’s a challenge to keep up with events regarding Iraq. The Economist has a good article on what’s going on right now. I’m finding the diplomatic machinations on both sides to be rather interesting. I’m sure there are plenty of people who would just as soon get a war on, but I think that if the United States is going to start a war with another country, we should make a clear case that illustrates why we’re doing so. As the world’s lone remaining superpower, I think it behooves us to make it clear to the rest of the world that we aren’t capricious.
