I’d consider myself largely conflicted and variable.
I understand the argument that Saddam should be deposed, but I don’t understand why the U.S. should act now and without broad international support. I see that the Bush administration’s bellicose stance has forced the inspection process to go as far as it has, but I still don’t think the inspectors have identified a real causus belli. I’m in favor of allowing more time for inspections, but I understand that there are strategic and tactical reasons why we must move soon if we move at all. I see that Saddam has effectively given the minimum necessary support to the inspectors, but to what extent should giving only the minimum enough to spark war?
I would be a lot happier with the war effort if there were a strong international consensus of support. I’m disturbed by the Bush administration’s apparent single-minded focus on war with Iraq rather than other international, domestic and economic issues.
In short, my view changes day by day, depending on the news.
