Iraq Questions
Nick Gillepsie at Reason makes a good point about Iraq situation:
Quite frankly, from a distance--and with a general lack of knowledge of what post-war occupations are like--I find it extremely difficult to evaluate conflicting news reports. It's easy (and not invalid) for pro-war and anti-war observers to argue from ideology, but it remains hard to get a good grip on what the situation is actually like, or any sense of context or historical perspective.
It's pretty hard sitting on the sidelines to make an assessment about how things are going. Some days I wonder why we are fucking this up so badly, and other days I think, everything considered, we are making progress. But what do I know?
