Steyn on 2003/2004

Read Mark Steyn’s review of the year’s prospects.

On Gaddafi’s change of heart he writes:

Why exactly did Colonel Gaddafi, within a week of Saddam’s capture, throw open the gates of his WMD facilities to the Brits and Yanks? The Speccie’s esteemed editor, in his interview with Silvio Berlusconi, got the scoop last September, when the Italian Prime Minister reported a recent phone call with the Libyan leader: “I will do whatever the Americans want,” said the Colonel, “because I saw what happened in Iraq, and I was afraid.”

Or as I put it in The Jerusalem Post in early May: “You don’t invade Iraq in order to invade everywhere else, you invade Iraq so you don’t have to invade everywhere else.”
