I'll write a little more on this when I get home, but I'm starting to think I may be overqualified to be a columnist at the New York Times. Nicholas Kristof is suggesting that the United States should sue Saddam Hussein out of power.
The United States should launch an effort to prosecute Saddam for crimes against humanity. This would destabilize his regime at home, encourage more defections of Iraqi officials and military officers, and increase the prospect of a coup that, in the best-case scenario, would render an invasion unnecessary.
Yeah, I'm sure a lawsuit will really get him quaking in his boots. Now I'm afraid that the only way I'll get a job at the Times is if someone beats me over the head with a stupid stick -- for the next 20 years.
