Worth The Read: The latest

Worth The Read: The latest from James Lileks and The Bleat

Let's say I'm a 44-year old Iraqi man with a two-year old girl and a wife who worked in the Ministry of Justice and came home every day weeping because someone else had been taken away, I would hear this speech and be filled with piercing fear and incandescent hope and the two emotions would wrestle every day until it was over. When you think about it, a postwar Iraq might actually be safer from WMD than New York City. Itíll be over for them.

Weíve no idea when itíll be over for us.
