Things to do

CNN's Jim Clancy called it a black and white view of the world, referring to George W. Bush's speech before the U.N. today.

Yep. A lot of work in front of us. All we need now is someone to roll up its sleeves and help the ones that have started the work already.

ADDITIONAL: LVBlog links to a NYT article on Hayek Institute on why the French are weaseling out of things and why we should feel very sorry about it:

What is so amazing to me about the French campaign - "Operation America Must Fail" - is that France seems to have given no thought as to how this would affect France. Let me spell it out in English: If America is defeated in Iraq by a coalition of Saddamists and Islamists, radical Muslim groups - from Baghdad to the Muslim slums of Paris - will all be energized, and the forces of modernism and tolerance within these Muslim communities will be on the run. To think that France, with its large Muslim minority, where radicals are already gaining strength, would not see its own social fabric affected by this is fanciful.

Says John Chipman, director of the London-based International Institute for Strategic Studies: "What the Europeans are saying about Iraq is that this is our backyard, we're not going to let you meddle in it, but we're not going to tend it ourselves."

Ill weeds grow apace ... .
