The uncomfortable fact is that the pro-war camp is merrily interpreting even its staunchest opposition on pro-war terms. Under that rubric, there’s no doubt that there’s a “just war” to be fought in Iraq — the only problem is sorting out the fine print. And sort it out they will. First in our War Room series, investigating the politics of peace. Watch for more original anti-war coverage on rabble. >by J.B. MacKinnon

Here is a good analysis, by a prowar writer, of how Bush's whole diplomatic policy has been disastrous and inept.

Then too, it might be that Bush himself is criminally ignorant. For example:

In last Sunday's New York Times Magazine, George Packer reports that when Bush met in January with top Iraqi exile-dissidents, they had a hard time explaining the differences between the Sunnis and the Shiites. The president seemed surprised that the two groups existed, much less that they had conflicts.
