A Washington Post editorial finds Vice President Cheney’s case that Saddam Hussein is a menace “persuasive.” But the Post demands that, before attempting to topple Saddam, the administration first offer a realistic plan for replacing him with a pluralistic government where “the human rights of every ethnic and religious group are recognized.” That’s a pretty high standard to impose as a pre-condition of protecting our national security. Nonetheless, David Pryce-Jones in National Review Online offers what he thinks is such a plan — a constitutional Hashemite monarchy, possibly with Prince Hassan of Jordan as “a figurehead who can serve to unite different national religions or ethnic groups.” Pryce-Jones is not deterred by charges of “colonialism,” for which he offers, in effect, two cheers.
