I wasen't accusing you of being right or wrong, you were stating your opinion.
My post was a response to your first reply as to why are we not in other countries doing the same as we are in Iraq.
Any average, stable minded American can see through the smoke that has risen and come to a conclusion why we needed to take Saddam out.
Morality is another question, I guess it all depends on what side of the street of Morality your stand on.
Yes we dropped the A-bomb on a country, twice. But was it our morals or thiers we were concerned with? Our morals dictated that we save more American lives than Japanese lives, it was a risk, we took it and we won.
Every war has a risk of winning and lossing, problem is that you just can't tell the outcome without going through it first.
Yes, fighting wars does include fighting but it also includes staying after the fact and stabilizing, which does include traffic control amongst other duties.
Our war is not with the Iraq people, it is with the insurgents, albiet some are Iraq I assume, but most are of other origin infusing into the populace, making our job that much harder to packup or drop a nuclear device to win.
Remember, Japan was a country at war, with full support of it's people, Iraq is a whole other beast to be fought in a very much different manner.
One similarity between other wars is that they can roam among us, looking for targets of opportunity on our soil, this is where we are most vunerable.
We as a nation need to control the people that wish us harm, problem is how to do it without either closing the borders, or locking up every single muslim?
Our freedoms can bite us in the arsh if we don't stand together and watch out for one another.
