Shifting Sands of Reason
Then and Now - reminded me of an interview I saw on one of the look-alike cable news shows last week - it was Rabbi Marvin Hier. He put forth that ever-present theory that Saddam is worse than Hitler and that we have to stop him now, etc. etc. I can't help wondering: if this is our altruistic motivation, then why didn't we long ago invade and conduct regime changes when other dictators were anhilating their own people: Idi Amin, Papa Doc Duvalier, Milosevic, Pol Pot, Pinochet -- oops, who am I to question the changing tides of foreign "policy"?
