Robert Fisk: offers perhaps the best informed and certainly most penetrating and honest reporting from the Middle East where he has lived for a number of years.  His column today on Hussein: “A dictator created then destroyed by America” tells it as it is.

Clearly Sadam killed and tortured many thousands of his own people. Unfortunately those who chose to go to war against him, particularly Bush and Blair, have caused the deaths of many inocent Iraqis as well as their own citizens. This mad, illegal crusade against a figure that was partially created by some of the very Americans who have chosen to war against him has backfired.

Read Fisk who puts things better than I can.

“A war is just if there is no alternative, and the resort to arms is legitimate if they represent your last hope.” (Livy cited by Machiavelli)
