The Myth of a Republican Split on Iraq
Once again Charles Krauthammer has it right. Especially this excerpt:
It turns out that the disagreement among Republicans was less about going to Iraq than about going to the United Nations. It was a vastly overblown disagreement, because even the most committed unilateralist would rather not go it alone if possible. Of course you want allies. You just don’t want to be held hostage to their veto. And as the first President Bush demonstrated when he declared that the United States would liberate Kuwait unilaterally if necessary, the best way to get allies is to let others know you are prepared to go it alone and let them ponder the cost of missing the train.

The speech today brought me back, if only temporarily.Here are some reviews of the speech, courtesy The National Review. The case has most assuredly been made. Over the next few days, even more details will be filled in. Stay Tuned.
