Hi Bo,

I was going to post this yesterday. Some very good questions there. Inconsistencies aside, it is his consistency w.r.t. internationalism that bothers me most.

I loved the question on sanctions.

Actually they probably did. Even though he was able to smuggle a lot of oil out, his military would have been a LOT stronger if those sanctions hadn't been in place (the invasion would not have succeeded as quickly as it did), and he just might have been able to produce those weapons of you-know-what that Rumsfeld said he knew the locations of.
