Con to the question "Should the US Have Attacked Iraq?"
"According to Richard Haass, director of policy planning at the State Department until June 2003...the administration 'did not have to go to war against Iraq, certainly not when we did. There were other options.'
Ironically...he is right about Iraq. It is a war of choice -- a bad choice as it turns out."
"A War of Choice or of Necessity?" Washington Post, Dec. 8, 2003
