WAR: Going To The Roots

Christopher Hitchens argues that Saddam is going to topple sooner or later anyway, so we might as well be around to hasten the end and stanch the bleeding. This is part of Hitchens' continuing campaign to prove that, right now, we are all objectively either pro-war or pro-fascism; as he also notes, the really radical thing post-September 11 has been the fact that conservatives have been the ones looking for root causes of terrorism, tracing the money and the ideology back to regimes that support terror as well as those whose repression breeds hatreds, while the crowd that blathers on about "root causes" is actually uninterested in looking that deep.
