Chris Hitchens blasts the anti-war protestors who battled hurricane winds (rather unsuccessfully) for some coverage this weekend. Actually, for Chris, it was more a gentle nudge than a blast.
The article brings up (as much of the other coverage does) a conundrum for thinking people who were against the invasion of Iraq.
After all, is pulling out now really a reasonable option? Would anyone argue that we should pull out of New Orleans because we didn’t plan well enough for its aftermath?
Is there any doubt that a unilateral withdrawal at this point would be a disaster for the U.S. and a total betrayal of the Iraqis?
It’s too late to protest against the invasion of Iraq, isn’t it?
