I felt it necessary to go on record with my unchanged views on Iraq before they either become buried or even vindicated by the judgements of history. So, here they are:
a) I still think the war was the right thing to do.
b) I still hold out hope for the democratic project in Iraq.
c) I still have a lot of trouble understanding why so many people would cheer against freedom in Iraq, despite all the troubles.
So, there it is. I know this is running against the current tide of world opinion, which is why I felt it necessary to get it in before history decides the matter more concretely in the months and years to come.
