...its actual, everything is counterfactual

Most critics of the Iraq war fail to take into account any idea of what the world might be like if we had never invaded Iraq. Michael Barone has a nice roundup on his blog.

While it is true that we can never know what MIGHT have happened. We do know that there have been no successful terror attacks on US soil since 9/11. I am of the opinion that the Bush administration derserves credit for that.

One of my least favorite lefty arguments is that involvement in Iraq has stymied progress in the fight against Al Qaida. In today's WSJ, Christopher Hitchens demonstrates why this is a liberal canard. I like his Beirut-inspired counterfactual as well.
