WAR: Tuesday's Lileks

Tuesday's Lileks on the kidgitprop being pushed on his 2 1/2 year old daughter (i.e., "root causes," multilateralism, etc.) is another classic. For my part, I've told the kids (3 and 5) that our soldiers will be going to fight a war soon, that Saddam is a very bad man who killed a lot of people, and that they will have to kill him or put him in jail. My son understood, although he did need reassurance that nothing would happen to him. I'm not gonna hide the truth (as opposed to September 11, which we had to hide from the kids because they knew where I worked).
