Why I love irony

The people who are clamoring for war against Iraq use to defend their position the argument that America has already been attacked; that Saddam Hussein has weapons of mass destruction, even though we can't find them; and even if he doesn't, we should attack now because if we wait, he'll eventually get those weapons and will use them against us.

Interestingly, these are the same people who oppose environmentalism, alternative fuel sources, and conservation. They completely reject arguments that the environment has already been severely damaged; that fossil fuel use causes irreparable environmental damage, even if we're not sure what it is; and even if it hasn't, we should change our consumption habits because if we wait, eventually something terrible will happen and it'll be too late to do anything about it.

I guess it's not the argument; it's the enemy.
