Spent the whole day researching, so again the posts have been light. I will post more tomorrow.
At any rate, I had intended to savage Will Hutton today, but I was alerted by reader and fellow blogger that he had already undertaken the task. Not exactly what I would say, but any dung flung in Hutton’s face is a good thing.
There were particular sentences that really irked me, including these gems.
Dangerous dictator he may be, but the unilateral decision to declare war upon another state without a casus belli other than suspicion will upset the fabric of law on which international relations rests, as well as destabilising the Middle East.
God forbid we destabilize the Middle East. How a region already drowning in violence (violence usually overlooked by our EU friends), and ruled by a string of petty dictators, theocrats, and cruel autocrats can be further destabilized is a conundrum in itself, but far beyond Hutton’s delicate insight.
The Supreme Court’s suspension of the Florida recount in December 2000, to gift the presidency to Bush, is part of the same story.
Really. I just do not have the energy tonight for this loathesome loser. Just go read his bile here.
