HERE IS AN ADDITION to Robert Alt's Left-wing Creed on Iraq. My thanks to Philip Adams for bringing it to my attention on Monday night.

"The occupation of Iraq by the US-led Coalition is inherently immoral and oppressive and therefore the abuses at Abu Ghraib are not worthy of our attention. Pooh to them, I say. Conditions in Iraq would be greatly improved if the Coalition simply got out and left the oppressed people to their own devices. Slurp."
