In her latest piece, Ann Coulter puts the controversy over Iraq into perspective:
But why not hurry? Democrats claim they haven't seen proof yet that Saddam is a direct threat to the United States. For laughs, let's suppose they're right. In the naysayers' worst-case scenario, the United States would be acting precipitously to remove a ruthless dictator who tortures his own people. As Bush said, after detailing some of Saddam Hussein's charming practices: "If this is not evil, then evil has no meaning." It's not as if anyone is worried that we're making a horrible miscalculation and could be removing the Iraqi Abraham Lincoln by mistake.
I can just envision the response: OK, so maybe he's not Iraq's answer to Abraham Lincoln. Still, he can't be all that bad, or 100% of the Iraqi electorate wouldn't have voted for him. UPDATE: Anyone who still thinks we are wrong about Iraq should read this.
