Worth a read.

From David Warren (with a hat tip to CAPT H for pointing him out):

War does solve problems. It is what removed Saddam Hussein from power, uncovered his mass graves, failed to uncover specific nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons, did locate and remove mountains of the "conventional" sort, and is now removing the Jihadis from Fallujah. It is what has brought elections to Afghanistan, sent little girls to school, brought food and hope to millions of starving, and as an unintended side-effect, increased the opium harvest and given the Afghan warlords a new lease on life. Nothing in life is perfect -- not even war -- but if there is going to be liberty anywhere in the world, there are going to be wars to obtain it.
