davidw: I'm ambivalent about the proposed war on Iraq, too, but my views haven't changed in quite a few weeks, which given how many new facts have come to light in that time means perhaps I have achieved a certain clarity on the question. It seems to me useful to distinguish two quite different questions: firstly, what difference will a war in Iraq make to the region; second, are America's reasons for proposing the war good ones? The first question is the difficult one; the second question it seems to me demands the answer "No, the Bush administration is providing clearly bad justifications for its proposed campaign."

SyntaxPolice: Ah, but category theory allows you to suddenly turn nice, concrete subjects like the differential calculus into generalised abstract nonsense. It is quite wonderful in this respect.
