Commentary (by JB) Abstract
Hmmm ... this editor (JB) disagrees. Shatter is a fine man on most issues but, like most Irish Jews, seems to lose it when it comes to the Middle East.
Both the Government and Fine Gael were right to support UN economic sanctions on Iraq. However, they are wrong about the war.
We should unapologetically support the US, the UK and their allies in the war being waged in Iraq.
