KURDS: For those who didn’t

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 9:18 pm

KURDS: For those who didn’t bother to read the Krugman piece I endorsed here, let me endorse it again. Perhaps I should have elaborated on what he says. Most compelling are Krugman’s observations that the Bush plan (1) sells the Kurds down the river (which it unquestionably does) and (2) fails to rid the Iraqi government of Baathist influences, in sharp contrast to the thorough rooting out of all Nazis in Germany after WWII. “Saddam Hussein and a few top officials will be replaced with Americans, but the rest will stay.” Serious charges, to be taken seriously, in my view.
