This war needs some better marketing!

So, we all know that the war in Iraq is because Saddam was amassing Weapons of Mass Destruction, er, wait, no, it was something about Iraq having ties to Al Quaeda, uh, nope, not that either... oh right, it was about bringing democracy, freedom, liberty and apple pie to people who have been oppressed. Well it looks like the neocons and the rest of the apologists for this war had better start thinking up a new reason, because Iraq's new constitution is available for viewing and whoever thinks that this is a document of democracy and liberty needs to have their head examined! If they would just admit that this war is about George Dubya's daddy issues and Dick Cheney's personal wealth, they would still be vile, but at least they'd be more honest. Thomas Knapp offers an interesting critique of the new Iraqi constitution.

I would think a liberal would be happy with some of the new Iraq constitution elements, as opposed to the old Hussein regime. For example, it says firearms can't be owned without a permit under the new regime, whereas under Hussein, firearms were widely owned and sold openly in the streets- No permits needed. Just one of many ways many Iraqis won't be as free in the future as they were under Hussein.

This liberal happens to think that the 2nd amendment is a good thing. But I think that deadly weapons need some kind of regulation. Keep in mind that the guy who wrote that critique is a libertarian.
