    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    Oh for Pete's sake,

    The US claims a war against Saddam would be quick. Wrong, says analyst Toby Dodge, the conflict could be long and bloody

    To the bolded. So the US says war with Saddam, quick and easy, and an Englishman, Toby Dodge refutes it, and he speaks for all "leftists" !!!!!!!!! What a farce.

    No one speaks for all Leftists but the Guardian is a left wing media and those sentiments were often echoed in other leftist media as well. Recall "quagmire" and "another Vietnam"?
