Peggy Noonan today, on Bush's recent Iraq speeches:
One of the things I think the president communicated most effectively, if mostly between the lines, was the sense that some decisions a president faces don't promise good outcomes no matter which way he comes down....
And one such was: To move on Saddam or not?
Peggy Noonan, March 24, 2003:
This is what the American victory in Iraq is going to mean:
It is going to mean, first, that something good happened.... The coming victory is going to be the biggest good thing that has happened in the world, the West and the United States since the twin towers fell.
