WAR, PHASE II….Max Sawicky, at the end of a post about good and bad reasons to be either for or against the war, says:

Alternatively, does anyone adhere to the theory that the U.S. should upset every absolutist applecart in the Mid-East? On to Syria, Iran,….? That to me is so loony I don’t feel it’s even worth the time to argue.

The problem is that Max inexplicably leaves out the primary argument of the pro-war party: we’re fighting Saddam because he poses a security risk to the United States. As near as I can tell, the answer to Max’s question is: yes, lots of people adhere to that theory, on the basis that all these countries pose a threat to the U.S. It may be loony, but I’m guessing it won’t be long before we start hearing it. We’d better start sharpening our arguments now.
