Christopher Hitchens on the Hundred-Year Iraq War and Iranian Threat (1991 - Part 1)

February 4, 1991 Debate between Christopher Hitchens and Warren Strobel.

This video, along with the rest in the series, is really entertaining for me because the first time I watched this debate, 20 years ago, I hated Hitchens for everything he was saying and completely disagreed with him.  Now, 20 years later, I fully agree with the position he took in 1991 but I'm not the only one that has taken an about face on these issues.  Interestingly enough, I had no idea who Hitchens really was until I got active on this site - I used to just think he was a mouthy Brit.

Watch what he says now in modern-days; he admits himself he was quite naive back in the days such as opposing the original gulf war.

So Hitchens might be fallible after all.  The question is whether you think his mistake was then or now.
