From a great, great piece by Gene Lyons:
It doesn’t appear to have registered that if the White House geniuses really thought Saddam capable of attacking with “weapons of mass destruction,” the well-publicized U.S. troop buildup in Kuwait offers the fattest target since Pearl Harbor.
Not to mention the need for a draft to replace them – if we REALLY believe he has weapons of mass destruction and would use them. But I think the Korea situation shows us the reaction of the Bushies to a country that they actually DO think can harm us – instead of just using that as a rationale for a war they want.
Update – Korea. What I said the other day – “Speak loudly and carry a don’t-do-squat stick!”
