Nermin, Thank you for sharing your interview with Scott Ritter. You did a great job and asked the right questions.. One of Ritter's answers (below) I found to be a bit of an oxymoron. He is saying he has always worked for peace, but was in the Marines. And says "I think it is great when one fights a just war." Since when has any war been deemed "just"? How can one work for peace and have orders to murder another human being? ~ Anai Rhoads --- You were one of the toughest UNSCOM inspectors. What had changed your position? I have always worked for peace, even when I was in the Marines and during the [Second Gulf] war. I think it is great when one fights a just war. As an inspector, I was working under the mandate stipulated by UN Security Council resolutions. - - - - 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. -- __________________________________________________________ Sign-up for your own FREE Personalized E-mail at Mail.com http://www.mail.com/?sr=signup _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
