  • The Way Out [NY Times tells Bush 41 to get rid of Saddam, 18 years ago this week]

    The New York Times ^ | April 23, 1991 | A. M. Rosenthal
    But what to do now? Exactly what the U.S. could have done before: recognize the cease-fire as a false peace, present the Iraqi Army with an ultimatum -- to get rid of Saddam Hussein or the U.S. will resume the air attack on military targets and every high officer will be tried for war crimes. With the killer gone, Iraqis can be left to their own political settlements. The only duty of the U.S. is to allow those who trusted us to return to their homes, free of terror. But to do that, Mr. Bush must show true strength --...

    Charles Kaiser: Do you want to talk about your father’s unlikely party affiliation?Andrew Rosenthal: His communism? CK: Yes.AR: That was quite a revelation. My father was a member of the Communist Youth Party, or whatever it was called at the time. CK:This was a letter that you found from your aunt?AR: It was a letter from my aunt Ruth, who I never met, to her husband, George Watt, who was fighting in the Spanish Civil War in the Abraham Lincoln brigade. And they corresponded. She wrote one day that she had gone down to youth headquarters. Because it was “Sonny’s”...
  • Saddam's fall, not WMDs, is the point (Good Editorial)

    For months, most Americans have been saying they were sure President Bush would win reelection and make the fight against terrorism even stronger. I shared that sense of confidence that he would protect the U.S. and its allies - the ones America still trusts. Then one of the more astonishing moments in American history took place: David Kay, the chief U.S. weapons inspector in Iraq, announced that he had not found any evidence of weapons of mass destruction there. In an instant, the principal stated purpose for the invasion of Iraq - the growing threat to the Middle East and...

    The hideous war of the world's terrorists against the countries that yearn for peace for themselves, their people and their people's children may end sooner than we have thought. But achieving this goal will require an essential step by sovereign nations, whether or not they are members of the United Nations: the execution of all who are caught, tried and found guilty of murder by terrorism. The death penalty would be imposed as fairly as possible, but also as swiftly as possible. Let's say that after a high-level jury - composed of judges who have sworn by their nation and...

    This too will pass - the evenings when you are sitting around a table talking about President Bush and want to lean across and slap the face of the person smirking about him. Actually, before administering that slap, I would first quote the British writer Barbara Amiel: "I've heard Americans gloat over their own casualties in Iraq, as if every death were a stab in the President's heart alone rather than in American soldiers, so profound is their hatred." Then I would slap. I doubt that many Americans do delight in American casualties. But still, far too often, the repellent...

    Just about all my friends are boiling with anger. They are furious because the United States chose not to surrender to Iraq, the leader of the fascist ring of countries that almost every day threatens to destroy our nation - and will, if it can, no matter how long it takes or how many human beings are killed. Fascists? Yes, fascists. They detest being called anything but romantic, warrior-like names - militants, jihadists, soldiers of Allah. But what they do and how they do it copy the tactics of the fascists in power in Europe from the '20s through the...

    It is long past time we said so: The central guilty party in this week's massacre in Saudi Arabia - and many that took place in other countries - is painfully easy to identify, but almost never is. He is Crown Prince Abdullah, the ruler of Saudi Arabia. Under the crown prince's monarchical dictatorship, he and his vast family gave at least a half-billion dollars, probably more, to Al Qaeda, that coalition of terrorist gangs that likes to put itself forward as so strong and magically wise that it alone can kill all its political, military and religious enemies. The...

    Small armies of American and European journalists and politicians are getting more annoyed than ever with President Bush. This time, his offense is that American military search units have not yet found the smoking gun in Iraq - signs of Iraqi work on weapons of mass destruction. Imagine - after using up a month or so wiping out dictator Saddam Hussein's government and army, American forces have frittered away another month hunting for the weapons that Saddam's specialists had been hiding for 20 years. Iraq spent at least that much time working toward an armory of nuclear, chemical and biological...

    At a reception in New York a few evenings ago, I asked two of the most respected Middle East experts what the U.S. and those Iraqis who attain government influence could do to end the huge combination of religious rallies and political riots now taking place in Iraq. They could destroy any hope for Iraqi democracy and amity. "Force," one expert replied. The conversation made it clear he thought the U.S. would have to organize the anti-riot operation and take some part in it. The other expert said U.S. force would not be necessary, and Iraqis and time would end...

    When I became editor in charge of news coverage at The New York Times, the man who had been a predecessor of mine, the blessed Mississippian Turner Catledge, gave me one piece of advice: Don't tell editors of other papers and networks how to run their operations. You will have plenty to do running your own. Now and then, I do complain about the press - usually for not giving its audiences enough reporting on human rights unless a dictator, as in Iraq, is slaughtering his people or, as in Sudan, enslaving them. Even when Saddam Hussein and his fascist...
