Re: [casi] Response to Anai Rhoads thoughts


I think not only will the US eventually go to war (unilaterally), but will do so only after it 
claims Iraq does not comply with the "new" terms.

My prediction is that the new terms will be designed to make Iraq appear inflexible and 
uncooperative by making them (the terms) harder to comply with logically. This will then lead to 
*the* opportunistic avenue for the US to jump on Iraq, by giving them enough sympathetic votes from 
the UN.

Forgiveness breaks the chain of causality because he who forgives you -- out of love--takes upon 
himself the consequences of what you have done. Forgiveness, therefore, always entails a sacrifice.
