It is disturbing that so much of our "elite" foreign policy talk seems to involve posing rather than actually addressing specific issues.

Ultimately this will continue until our elites are willing to confront Iraq and their own culpability, from Gulf War I through the sanctions period to the present. While there's a tendency to see Gulf War I as a "good war," presumably because it wasn't a clusterfuck for the US, there seems to be little willingness to examine that war as part of a continuous chain of events which led, ultimately, to where we are now.
