A little antidote to the current knee-jerk, fast food opinon that "Bush is just as bad as Saddam" from a much unexpected direction; John Perry Barlow
writes in this great piece
I believe that Dick Cheney has thought all these considerations through in vastly greater detail than I'm providing here and has reached these following conclusions: first, that it is in the best interests of humanity that the United States impose a fearful peace upon the world and, second, that the best way to begin that epoch would be to establish dominion over the Middle East through the American Protectorate of Iraq. In other words, it's not about oil,it's about power and peace.
To make it perfectly clear; I'm no fan of George W or war on Iraq, but a little perspective never hurts. So go read. Since this
may only have a very limited effect...
