Michael Kinsley: Ours Is Not To Reason Why. Kinsley offers a scathing attack on the lack of a coherent argument in favor of war in Iraq by the Bush administration. The USA Today reports on efforts to get Saddam Hussein to slink off into exile. I don’t think anyone would like to see Saddam Hussein live out the rest of his days on the French Riviera, but I think that would be a better outcome than further devestating Iraq in a attempt to dislodge him. I do have to laugh when the White House says that it would like to see Saddam tried for war crimes, seeing as how they’re dead set against international law in general, and many of them have certainly countenanced and accepted plenty of horrors in the Cold War quest to “spread democracy.”
