Lagniappe - Michael Kinsley of Slate tells truth to the anti-war movement. He expresses what I have been feeling lately as someone morally opposed to war and its concomitant destruction, but also someone very anti-dictator and pro-liberation. I admit to being very glad that, for the moment at least, Iraqis are out from under the horror of a repressive regime. But I still don't think the war was morally correct. For me, it is a question of means versus ends. I am one who does not hold that the end necessarily justifies the means. And I think the pro-war gloaters who have never been able to resist equating anti-war sentiment with pro-Saddam sentiment are missing the point.
