Doc Searls: (quoting Andrew Sullivan): “I recall very clearly one night before the war began. I made myself
write down the reasons for and against the war and realized that if
there were question marks on both sides, the deciding factor for me in
the end was that I could never be ashamed of removing someone as evil
as Saddam from power. I became enamored of my own morality and this
single moral act. And he was a monster, as we discovered. But what I
failed to grasp is that war is also a monster
.”

    We always underestimate the hell war can bring. Saddam may done great evil, but we’ve brought even worse upon the iraqi people.

    As the saying goes, we’ve just replaced one tyranny with another.

    Hadn’t caught up on your blog in awhile. I owe snap.com for the visit. I was getting hugely annoyed by snap.com and had to google around to find a way to block them again in the new Firefox 3.0b4 and stumbled on your blog again. :)

    Snap.com sucking has become the meme that keeps us in touch. How’s that for funny.

    BTW. In order to block snap.com just install the Ad Block Plus extention in Firefox and create a filter that blocks snap.com. Works like a charm. I think I was using greasemonkey in Firefox 2.0. Adblock is easier.
