Circular dialogue on war in Iraq

· Music

. A little late in the game, I find a link to Cronus Connections’ A Warmonger Educates a Peacenik. Will Instapundit be linking to this (or has he already)? I wonder.

An excerpt:

Peacenik: Why are we invading Iraq?
Warmonger: For the last time, we are invading Iraq because the world has called on Saddam Hussein to disarm, and he has failed to do so. He must now face the consequences.
Peacenik: So, likewise, if the world called on us to do something, such as find a peaceful solution, we would have an obligation to listen?
Warmonger: By “world”, I meant the United Nations.
Peacenik: So, we have an obligation to listen to the United Nations?
Warmonger: By “United Nations” I meant the Security Council.
Peacenik: So, we have an obligation to listen to the Security Council?
Warmonger: I meant the majority of the Security Council.
Peacenik: So, we have an obligation to listen to the majority of the Security Council?
Warmonger: Well… there could be an unreasonable veto.
Peacenik: In which case?
Warmonger: In which case, we have an obligation to ignore the veto.
Peacenik: And if the majority of the Security Council does not support us at all?
Warmonger: Then we have an obligation to ignore the Security Council.

Indeed.
