The NIE Report as a Vindication of the Iraq Invasion
Via Jawa Report, go to the above link, which is cool because Jawa Report is one of the biggies/best blogs, he linked me, referencing VDH's "Revisionism and the Iranian Non-Bomb"


After all, what critic would wish now to grant that one result of the 2003 war — aside from the real chance that Iraq can stabilize and function under the only consensual government in the region — might have been the elimination, for some time, of two growing and potentially nuclear threats to American security, quite apart from Saddam Hussein?

War is unpredictable and instead of "no blood for oil" (oil went from $20 something to $90 something a barrel after the war, enriching Iraq and the Arab Gulf region at our expense), perhaps the cry, post facto, should have been "no blood for the elimination of nukes."
