Voice from the Commonwealth Commentary, World Views and Occasional Rants from a small 'l' libertarian in Massachussetts
"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

"Your blog is bullshit"- anonymous angry French reader.
This is a good example in microcosim of what many are claiming about Iraq. The FBI is claiming that Khalid Shaikh Mohammed's arrest may accelerate terrorist attacks on the US.
Should we, therefore, have not arrested him? Obviously not. Why? Because the attacks were going to come anyway. Saddam regularly declares himself still at war with America. This has been ongoing since 1991. Bin Laden also declared himself at war with America. We ignored the delcaration and it has cost us thousands of lives. We ignore Saddam's declaratoins and threats at our own risk.
