ABSTRACT
Discusses lessons in world politics that should have been learned from a bad year. Saddam Hussein and his Baathist dictatorship in Iraq were worse than everyone thought; The illogic of protesters invoking "just war" theory when evidence of massacre and genocide in Iraq was obvious; View that the Kurds in northern Iraq have a society that is viable; Criticism of the "National Security Strategy" of 2002 that ensures United States hegemony and affirms preemptive strike; Justification for U.S. intervention; View that the U.S. should have presented a human rights case to the world instead of invading Iraq.
