Oooooh, That War!
The New York Times may be waking up to the fact that the war to liberate Iraq has been underway for some time now.
Well, maybe not.
After detailing U.S. and British attacks on a variety of Iraqi military sites, the Times article concludes with this: "Beyond the legal arguments and alliance politics, however, the Iraqi deployment of the missiles and the allied counterblows appear to be part of the process of shaping the battlefield for a war that seems increasingly likely to come." [Italics are mine.]
Huh? After reading -- let alone writing -- that article, how could anyone conclude that the war hasn't already started? At what point does it officially become a war?
You have to hand it to President Bush and Tony Blair. For nearly a year, they have -- thank God -- waged war on Saddam Hussein; and during that time, most of the world seems to think that the US and Britain are waiting for UN authorization before using military force against Iraq. As I mentioned earlier this week, this is a masterpiece of military diversion.
