“The anti-war crowd has some explaining to do”:http://www.townhall.com/columnists/jonahgoldberg/jg20030411.shtml
bq. I want to rub it in the anti-war crowd’s face so badly. I want to hear the protesters explain why it’s a bad thing we released more than 100 children from an Iraqi gulag for underage political prisoners. I want them to talk about how they were fighting for the Iraqi people as the Iraqi people hug and kiss the American forces in Baghdad and greet the human shields with signs reading “Go Home You Wankers.” I want them to explain why it wasn’t worth it.

And here is what another person who now stands for peace says:
“Scott Ritter in His Own Words”:http://www.time.com/time/nation/article/0,8599,351165,00.html
bq. The prison in question is at the General Security Services headquarters, which was inspected by my team in Jan. 1998. It appeared to be a prison for children ? toddlers up to pre-adolescents ? whose only crime was to be the offspring of those who have spoken out politically against the regime of Saddam Hussein. It was a horrific scene. Actually I’m not going to describe what I saw there because what I saw was so horrible that it can be used by those who would want to promote war with Iraq, and right now I’m waging peace.

So what if some children died who could have been saved. It was all for “peace”. Let’s light more candles.
