MAGNANIMOUS, AS ALWAYS….Glenn Reynolds on Saddam’s buddies:

The French are still defending him. And they’ll probably try to blame the U.S. and Britain for the slaughter [in Basra]. But they want a piece of the action once Saddam’s gone.

Screw ’em. We ought to help the new Iraqi government extradite Chirac as a war criminal.

Has he completely flipped his lid?

And on a more substantive note, is Glenn in favor of Iraqi democracy or not? If he is, then he should accept that the Iraqis ? decent people, we are told, once they are liberated from Saddam’s lies and deceit ? will choose to do business with whomever they please. But if he thinks that Iraq should be treated like an American colonial possession, then shouldn’t he just come out and say so?
