WAR: Kuttner's Folly

Robert Kuttner's latest op-ed ignores his history (the recent outbreak of looting in Iraq is unremarkable compared to past countries suddenly liberated; even the Tories did not fare so well after the American Revolution - tarring and feathering, anyone?). More absurdly, he suggests that the U.S. military is letting rioters wreck the country so as to increase the size of Halliburton's construction contracts. Amazing.

Hey, where's the 'root causes' crowd when you need them?
