Todos os comentários que possamos fazer à guerra no Iraque, são isso mesmo: comentários. Mas são-no em relação à Guerra do Peloponeso, de Tucídides.
When you think that all justifications for waging war on Irak were exhausted, and that all counter-arguments were gaining strengh, the deliberate torture of children in order to pressure their parents taints all this enterprise with a character of evil. After Fallujah and Abu Ghraib there was no chance for the ocupating troops to win the hearts and minds of the population. But now, there's is no chance that the population won't rise up against the ocupants.
