1) Michael Totten takes issue with this Paul Savoy piece in The Nation. I found these sentences particularly strong:
It’s true that many people are dead in Iraq because of what we did. It’s equally true that a larger number are alive because of what we did. The well-being of Iraqis isn’t even remotely what’s at issue to Mr. Savoy. He only cares that we are morally pure. Tyranny, barbarism, and genocide are fine with him in a lesser-evil sort of way as long as we can sit safe and sound on our side of the ocean and not have to dirty ourselves by messing with it.2) Armavirumque reproduces a New York Sun profile of Anthony Daniels (Theodore Darymple) - a quite superb writer.
