I'm not one to be hung-ho about initiating a war with any country, but at the same time I think people are opposing war just because the old adage of "war=bad" is all they know. No one has a clear solution of how to disarm Iraq without using force. And if the US was after Iraq's oil supplies, why didn't they take control of the oil in the first Gulf War? I feel the same way about most other types of protests. Environmental. Anti-Global. It's like they whine and blame corporations or the government for everything, yet they don't come up with any solutions or take into account that social, economical, technological advances would not have been made if it weren't for these same corporations. I don't like big box stores or downsizing, but I don't like people throwing flaming bottles at government offices only to whine of police "brutality" when they get a little pepper in their eyes. It's all about balance. __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?
