Between this and hiring an AEI flack to write a comic about Iraq, the Dan Buckley-era Marvel is rapidly becoming a neoconservative mouthpiece.
By the way, look for the morbid and unintentional hilarity in Card's war piece as he frets about the disastrous consequences of leaving Saddam Hussein in power:
A vicious power struggle, certainly, with a lot of killing. Just as certain is a revolt by each of half a dozen rival anti-Saddam forces within Iraq.
There is also a high likelihood of outside intervention, probably sponsored by Iran, Syria, and/or Saudi Arabia, probably in the form of a well-funded terrorist-linked force stepping in to try to take control.
What happens then to his stockpiles of nerve gas, biotoxins, missiles, nuclear weapons, and dirty bombs?
Well, thank God we threw in our 1300 dead and 8150 wounded soldiers, then, not to mention the 10,000 or more civilian fatalities; otherwise Card's nightmarish dystopia might come to pass! Anyway, wasn't it worth it just to verify that there weren't any nuclear weapons and dirty bombs?
Of course, Card follows it up with the obligatory invocations of Hitler, appeasement, and World War II. That was so 2003. I'd like to think that by now we all realize how sad and fraudulent the comparisons of antiwar protesters to Neville Chamberlain are, but as long as conservatives and hawks still stand to benefit from playing this card - as long as they need it to justify their initiation of an optional and disastrous war based on false pretenses and fought without a clear plan for the rebuilding - you can bet it'll continue to be played.
