I’ve found an interesting device to shut up those who claim we should have let the UN deal with Saddam, by means of rule of law. Most of these nutcases, don’t like the idea of having to fight to get to the goal. We should, in the view of these idiots, be all meek as mice, and not raised a hand to Saddam, or anyone else for that matter.

The answer is simply to remind them of a few facts:

Rule 1: People die on swords
Rule 2: Those without swords can and do still die on them
Rule 3: “Rule of law” does nothing to change the first two rules
Rule 4: Even Law requires swords for it’s enforcement

Finally, remind them that President Bush was upholding the rule of law, as laid out in Resolution 1441.
