Who to applaud?

It might surprise some to learn that I am not opposed to going to war in Iraq. There are many good reasons to do so, and if done right, both the world and the region can emerge a much better place afterward. However, I have absolutely no faith that our leaders will or can wage war rightly. Being both pro-war and anti-Bush has left me in an awkward position, with seemingly no one to cheer for and everyone to cheer against.

It turns out that columnist Thomas Friedman, winner of three Pulitzer prizes, feels exactly the same way as I do. He wrote an editorial yesterday that eloquently expresses what I couldn’t here. Whatever your views, this is a piece worth reading.
