Galloway in Doha Debate on Iraq: video

The panel is a debate (two-person per side parliamentary style) arguing the proposition that ‘This House believes that only a new dictator can end the violence in Iraq’.

Arguing against the motion is George Galloway (UK RESPECT MP) and Adnan Pachachi (former President, Iraqi Governing Council); arguing for the motion is Sabah Al-Mukhtar (Iraqi lawyer) and Robert Bear (former CIA officer and consultant on Syriana). The moderator also swings in to challenge the debators in a rather combative style.

The individual runs are actually quite short, and this debate but skims the surface. Nevertheless,  may be worth a listen.

RT 45 minutes.

Timely Reminders

"Those who crusade, not for God in themselves, but against the devil in others, never succeed in making the world better, but leave it either as it was, or sometimes perceptibly worse than what it was, before the crusade began. By thinking primarily of evil we tend, however excellent our intentions, to create occasions for evil to manifest itself."
-- Aldous Huxley

"The only war that matters is the war against the imagination. All others are subsumed by it."
-- Diane DiPrima, "Rant", from Pieces of a Song.

"It is difficult
to get the news from poems
yet men die miserably every day
for lack
of what is found there"
-- William Carlos Williams, "Asphodel, That Greeny Flower"
