NZ Bear Wants an Answer

The Truth Laid Bear asks a question for those who continually argued that the war in Iraq was illegitimate and a violation of international law:

Now that he has been found to be alive, I'd ask this to those who considered this an illegitimate war: will you now stand up and demand that Hussein be placed back in power? He was, after all, the "legal" ruler of Iraq.

And if not, why not?

Bear -- and I -- will be waiting for an answer and an explanation.

UPDATE: Well, I got my answer from a member of the left, and while I don't agree with a lot of it, it is certainly a beautifully written, honest, and even patriotic response. See Kynn's take at Shock and Awe, and I'm also adding her to the blogroll.
