1 Iraqi = 1 American = 1 Englishman, etc...

"More important, all too many Americans have yet to confront the moral implications of invading and occupying Iraq. U.S. officials continue to exhort the American people to judge the war and occupation on whether it proves to be "successful" in establishing "stability." and "democracy" in Iraq. If so, the idea will be that the deaths of tens of thousands of Iraqis, including countless Iraqi children, will have been worth it. It would be difficult to find a more morally repugnant position than that."

- Jacob Hornberger

Killing thousands of non-combatants for some sort of political goal, even if that goal seems incredibly desirable, is still MASS MURDER.
Think of it this way, if the government said "We're going to exterminate all the homeless people, welfare mothers and their children in the US in order to stabilize the economy", would you think it was "worth it"? If they failed, would you blame them for "bungling" the planned extermination?

I love the blog that you have. I was wondering if you would link my blog to yours and in return I would do the same for your blog. If you want to, my site

name is American Legends and the URL is:

www.americanlegends.blogspot.com

If you want to do this just go to my blog and in one of the comments just write your blog name and the URL and I will add it to my site.

Thanks,
David

Bravo! For pointing out that the ends cannot justify the means or innocent lives lost here.
