Pro to the question "Should the US Have Attacked Iraq?"
"Despotism in its various forms (tribal, military, religious, and kingship) is the general and invariable trend of the Middle East. Faced with this hopeless and dangerous situation, a liberal external intervention seems to be right and just. It is in this perspective that President George W. Bush's initiative to the democratization of the greater Middle East must be situated."
