Just for the Record

I've been expressing my opposition to a war on Iraq for quite a long time now. But given that the war has now begun, I'll express my sincere hope (a) that we win decisively, (b) that we do so with minimal loss of life on both sides, and (c) that my concerns about inciting more terrorism turn out to be totally unfounded. This is one of those situations where I'd rather be wrong than right.

UPDATE: With respect to the war-on-Iraq/war-on-terrorism trade-off, read this excellent post by Mark Kleiman (who is and has been reluctantly pro-war), as well as the accompanying UPI story.
