Jonathan Freedland at least tries

During the build up to overthrowing Saddam the Guardian's Jonathan Freedland took on the thankless task of trying to talk sense into the peace movement. Post overthrow he continues in a similar vein No time to be smug.

After the obligatory sugar of how the peace movement was completely right about not wanting to annoy Saddam he moves on to the medicine part, suggesting that "activists" think a bit more carefully about what they want to happen in Iraq now.

I don't for one minute find it surprising that Freedland feels the need to point out to the peace movement that it might be a good idea to start thinking about the welfare of the Iraqi people. I would be surprised if they paid any attention.
