Fateful choices.

"We must face the consequences of the actions we advocate. For me, that means all the dangers of war. But for others, opposed to this course, it means — let us be clear — that the Iraqi people, whose only true hope of liberation lies in the removal of Saddam, for them, the darkness will close back over them again; and he will be free to take his revenge upon those he must know wish him gone." (Tony Blair, cited in the Village Voice by Nat Hentoff in explaining why he joins other liberals who aren't protesting a war for regime change in Iraq.)
