OxBlog makes an excellent point

OxBlog makes an excellent point about the public’s opposition to the war, especially that in Britain: “[T]he opposition to the war is broad, but not deep. In other words, I think it’s founded on fear. They know Saddam’s government is awful, they know Iraq has WMDs, and many of them think he’s tied to al Qaeda. The reason they oppose war, it seems to me, is fear that it will go badly — for the US/UK, for the Iraqi people, or both.”
