    we have met the enemy......, 2007-08-21 15:22:05 | Main | preemptive fisking..., 2007-08-21 19:51:30

    Posted to the comments section of a blog that no longer exists but preserved for posterity on the alt.surrealism newsgroup, my injudicious blathering really hasn't gone anywhere since then:

    http://www.ruminatethis.com/archives/000922.html Whether or not the UN authorizes the use of force doesn't matter. It matters whether or not the authorization of force was justified. If we find out that Saddam is stockpiling "WMD" then the obvious course of action is to destroy the stockpile, not to invade the country. Circumstances under which I would support a judicial use of force: Hussein re-engages in the active mass slaughter of civillians; Saddam re-invades a neighboring country; Iraqis re-engage in an open rebellion against Saddam's regime; credible evidence is supplied to the UN that Saddam is providing nuclear arms technology to non-state actors; Saddam Hussein says "Mxyzptlk" backwards.

    Saddam Hussein says "Mxyzptlk" backwards. My God. The worst crime of all!

    Indeed. If ever there was a crime that screamed for military intervention it would be deporting floating leprechauns back to the genocidal fifth dimension.
