I think it would be a tragedy if people like Elga were to be discouraged. We
are all feeling depressed at what has happened but Elga is right, we do have
to press on as best we can, exposing and hopefully correcting the vile
injustices and crimes that are bound to arise from what has happened.
I share Elga's view that (a)  Making this takeover of Iraq as difficult as
possible for the invaders, or even thwarting some of their nefarious plans,
may act as some    disincentive to further takeovers. We should support any
efforts to deny the Occupiers access to Iraqi money or oil, or any ability to
grant contracts that Iraq will pay for. We should push for UN involvement on
all levels. We should seek to deny the Occupiers any authority to do anything
beyond what the Geneva Conventions allow them.
