“If Howard Dean had his way, Saddam Hussein would be in power today, not in prison, and the world would be a much more dangerous place,” Mr. Lieberman said. “The American people would have a lot more to fear.”
No! Not so. We have a lot more to fear now. Instead of one enemy, we now have millions of new enemies. Instead of allies who support our cause and feel sympathetic toward our motives, we have strained relationships, former friends who are skeptical of our motives, and a world that regards us with fear and distrust. We’ll find no safety in a world like that.
