"The Bomb is Back" (by Jonathan Schell, November-December 2002) is an excellent article and absolutely on target, especially your idea that attacking Iraq is going to produce the opposite effect of stated U.S. policy objectives. Our nation seems to have gone brain dead, and the national press will hardly print any analysis opposing Bush's cowboy approach. Keep up the good work. Maybe you will break the judgment impasse.
