Yes, Linz, this is about Chris, and Vince Miller, and Tibor, and all the other decent and honorable people who disagree with you -- and with me -- about the conduct of the war. So long as you call them "Saddamites," you cannot logically exclude them from the fire and brimstone you bring down upon the heads of the other antiwar people. It means nothing to say you exclude them; in reason you cannot, unless you prefer to say they're too stupid to know what they're doing.
By implication, you are asking me to do something Ayn Rand once asked me to do, and I refused: to fly in the face of everything I know about the good will and good sense of old friends and to decide, on the basis of a present disagreement, that they are not the people I always knew them to be. I refuse again.
If I were Chris, or Tibor, or Matthew, and a friend called me, say, a Nazi, but hastened to add that I was a person of good will, I would feel deeply offended, profoundly hurt, and as if I were completely invisible to that friend.
