The Therapy Sessions

Thomas Friedman is right on target. There were many good reasons for the war in Iraq. The WMD were one, but there were plenty of others.

While I continue to believe that the weapons mystery will be solved, I find it interesting how many people have been eager to say this war - against one of the most brutal tyrannies the world has ever seen - was wrong because we can't find the WMD.

I thought we should have gone to war in 1991, when Saddam first violated the terms of Gulf War ceasefire. We were too eager to get out then - a decision that cost hundreds of thousands of Iraqi lives.

Let's not make that mistake again.
