There are times when I swear that The Onion is altering their backlog. For example, this “Point-Counterpoint” published on March 26, 2003:
This War Will Destabilize The Entire Mideast Region And Set Off A Global Shockwave Of Anti-Americanism
And what exactly is our endgame here? Do we really believe that we can install Gen. Tommy Franks as the ruler of Iraq? Is our arrogance and hubris so great that we actually believe that a U.S. provisional military regime will be welcomed with open arms by the Iraqi people? Democracy cannot possibly thrive under coercion. To take over a country and impose one’s own system of government without regard for the people of that country is the very antithesis of democracy. And it is doomed to fail.
A war against Iraq is not only morally wrong, it will be an unmitigated disaster.
