Towards A Good Samaritan World

Friday, March 31, 2006

RealClearPolitics entitles their link to Jonathan Freedland's latest piece in The Guardian: "Iraqis were better off under Saddam." I was pleased, because I thought a leftie was actually going to make the comparison between the current situation in Iraq and the situation under Saddam and argue that the Iraqis were better off under Saddam. Such an approach could be described as "critical thinking," a mode of discourse that has been monopolized by the right in recent years. In that case, Iraq could be a topic of some real debate.

No such luck. Freedland barely mentions Saddam, and makes no comparisons with his regime. Back to waiting.
