The Victims of 'Intervention'

While the sight of two journalistic supporters of the Iraq war engaging in a cyberspace custard pie fight with each other is undoubtedly amusing(Cohen v Hari is a bit like watching Chelsea v Arsenal- you want both sides to lose), let's not forget the true victims of the unspeakable crime against humanity that was cheered on by Johann Hari and Nick Cohen in March 2003.

Having opposed the war against Iraq from the start, having argued against it in print and having taken part in numerous anti-war demonstrations, my conscience is clear. As they survey the devastation that the the 2003 'intervention' has caused, how many of the so-called 'pro-war left' can, in all honesty, say the same?
