Looking For A War - Preemption Redux


What are they to do! In the absence of terrorists from one of the evil nations (take your pick: Iran,N.Korea,Cuba,Venezuela) the groundwork is being laid for preemptive strikes based on assumptions and secrets known only to a selected few. It is the prelude to Iraq all over again. This time it might be more difficult but the warriors---deskbound almost without exception--- are busy working at it. "This morning's news that President Bush is reasserting his doctrine of preemptive war is a bit of a surprise because, well, I think most people thought the Bush Doctrine was dead.How can Bush still argue for attacking another country based on his suspicions about their intentions -- when the first time he tried it, his public case turned out to be so utterly specious?" (Washington Post, March 16,2006). Great cartoon by Tom Toles.
