Re: Cappella Zielinski on Mazarr, 'Leap of Faith: Hubris, Negligence, and America's Greatest Foreign Policy Tragedy'

The origins of the 2nd Iraq War, like the origins of World War I, are an endlessly fascinating topic of debate. Of course I haven't yet read Mazarr's book, only this review, but it immediately stirred up a lot of doubt about what Zielinski seems to be saying about its central theme. Was this really America's moral failure, giving in to our collective "missionary ambitions?"
