Dear Roger, and all: >I do believe that >bombing Iraq is criminal and those that call for violence to end violence >are >thinking in a wrongheaded fashion. I suppose that using violence (i.e. war) to stop Nazi expansion in Europe was wrong according to your definition. I wonder what the world would be like in that circumstance....very scary indeed. If I am not mistaken, Hitler also brought huge economic and social improvements to Germany prior to WW2. You can "acknowledge" that, but his thirst for wars and genocide mustn't be forgotten, or left out of the equation. I could just as well be describing Saddam, since his Résumé is almost identical to that of Hitler. I don't need to mention the wars which have led to millions of deaths (yes millions, remember?), or the genocide and the countless cases of human rights abuses, executions, expulsions and 'total town-destructions' (I don't even think there's a word in the dictionary to describe it) because you already know about it. Do you seriously think that something like this is occurring "inside the borders" of "every other country"? I don't know whether to laugh or to cry if you really believe that, honestly. As an Iraqi, and being unrelated to any political parties whatsoever, I can personally say that Saddam and Sanctions are two sides of the same evil coin. You can argue all you like, but if you haven't experienced both at first hand, then you cannot ever truly understand.
