Moral equivalence watch.... Columnist Courtland Milloy is puzzled by Americans who think a depraved tyrant who uses chemical weapons on his own people, routinely tortures suspected opponents and is racing to arm himself with nuclear weapons aimed at Israel raises a fundamentally different concern than U.S. corporate fraud:

"I'm tired of giving dictators and butchers an even break as a reward for the hellish calamities they inflict on people," one reader wrote. "Saddam and his henchmen must go."

Might he have also had Enron et al. in the back of his mind?


The title of his column is Why No Outrage Over How We Treat Our Own Citizens? Saddam, Bush; Republican Guard, the Marines; summary executions, the appellate court system....it's all the same, maybe a difference in degree...
