If you didn't find Daniel Pipes odious before, perhaps you will after this column. It ends with this conclusion: "Civil war in Iraq, in short, would be a humanitarian tragedy but not a strategic one." Good god... On the one hand, there's his callousness. On the other hand, there's his baffling belief that Operation Iraqi Freedom ending in a bloody civil war could somehow not be a huge strategic disaster for America's "War on Terror." There's never been stronger proof that Mr. Pipes lives in his own fantasy world.
