Is Comment Possible?
The United States is today warning Iran, Syria, North Korea, and others to "draw the appropriate lesson from Iraq": that the "pursuit of weapons of mass destruction is not in their interest."
This blog has discussed ad nauseum the startling hypocrisy of this line of argument, coming from history's most notorious purveyor of weapons of mass destruction.
But even more mind-boggling is that such a pronouncement could come after days of the Administration down-playing of the importance of finding WMD in Iraq, and when time after time suspected weapons caches turn out to be something other than WMD, and when Americans now say that the invasion of Iraq will have been justified even if none are found.
