Con to the question "Should the US Have Attacked Iraq?"
"An international coalition to rid the region and the world of a monster is a good thing. Why then does Washington have so little international support for its imminent war to achieve 'regime change' in Iraq?...
The real reason why America can't get support for its war can be summed up in one word, Palestine...On a broader front the creation of a Palestinian state would remove the sting that young Arabs have felt so poignantly. And then, instead of seeing the West's inevitable victory over Saddam Hussein in Iraq as yet another humiliation, they could look to the building of new foundations of - we hope - democratic Arab states throughout the Middle East."
