Christopher Hitchens’ Defense of the Iraq War

October 15, 2008

I recently posted that the price for the Iraq war worth paying because of poor state the world would be in today had we not gone to war. This case is seldom made (although many will defend the prospect of staying in Iraq now that we are there), but Christopher Hitchens does an excellent job of making that case on BloggingHeads in a diavlog with Eric Alterman.

Two additional notes:

  • Hitchens doesn’t really adhere to any principle of radical uncertainty!
  • This is an excellent diavlog. Hitchens and Alterman disagree strongly about almost everything discussed, but the discussion remains both civil and highly substantive. Why doesn’t anything like this appear on television.
