Paging Winston Smith

Some ask how urgent this danger is to America and the world. The danger is already significant, and it only grows worse with time. If we know Saddam Hussein has dangerous weapons today - and we do - does it make any sense for the world to wait to confront him as he grows even stronger and develops even more dangerous weapons?

...

Some worry that a change in leadership in Iraq could create instability and make the situation worse. The situation could hardly get worse, for world security and for the people of Iraq. The lives of Iraqi citizens would dramatically improve if Saddam Hussein were no longer in power, just as the lives of Afghanistan's citizens improved after the Taliban.
