Bloggers often tout articles on the web as "must reading". It's presumptuous and cliché, and I resolve to do less of it myself....right after this time.

The essay by Robert Kagan and William Kristol of The Weekly Standard is a bit of a history lesson, in that it relies heavily on the statements and actions of President Bill Clinton, Security Advisor Sandy Berger and Defense Secretary William Cohen throughout the late 90's, on its way to thoroughly refuting the lie that the war in Iraq was "cooked up in Texas". The authors make the definitive case for the liberation of Iraq in "The Right War, For the Right Reasons". Read it, and forward it to someone who you suspect has a short memory.

UPDATE 2/17: Here's a visual aid.
