Those who know Saddam best. The "No Blood for Oil" automatons ought to have a look at this piece in today's Boston Globe by Vanessa Jones. Jones interviews several local members of the Iraqi exile community. And though they are properly suspicious of American motives, they all agree on two things: Saddam Hussein has to go, and that can't happen without US help.

That doesn't mean we should invade this week. It does mean that this is a whole lot more morally complicated than this past weekend's smug antiwar protesters would have it.
