GENERAL SHERMAN WAS RIGHT
Glenn Reynolds thinks it “monstrous” that a cartoonist chooses to remind people that invading Iraq means, among other things, damaging — and killing — Iraqi children, who are just as innocent as children in, say, New York.
I really can’t see the monstrosity of pointing that out. It’s true. That our attack on Iraq will be have some justification, while the al-Qaeda attack on New York had none, doesn’t make it any less true. If you’re not willing to kill a bunch of people who haven’t done anything in particular to deserve it, then you’re not ready to wage war.
