First, post "No need to write me about Crowded House or the other mostly mediocre indie bands from Down Under." Second, post about the Iraq War on an econ blog. All of your protests took me to be defending the war (or Bush’s execution of the war), which is not the case. The key claims are a) one popular argument against the war is overrated, b) there are two other good (whether you agree with them or not) arguments against the war, and c) those two other good arguments are doomed to a certain amount of unpopularity, because they sound unpatriotic and defeatist. This is one reason, for instance, why John Kerry never outlined an Iraq position satisfactory to the broader American public. Thanks for all your emails, and sorry if I confused you.
