I was against this war, and still am. Why? Because, as in any war, too many people get killed. Now, show me, how have today's events changed that? Are all the people that DID get killed instantly Lazarussed back into existence? How about the other top-level argument that diplomacy didn't get to run its full course? Do today's event's deliver any proof of the contrary? I don't, personally, belief so.
I stand by what I said when I said this war was unnecessary and cruel.
Anybody could've told you that the US would get what it wanted if it only got to flex its muscles. I don't think anybody's surprised, or am I wrong? Still, the fact that this horrid war may have brought about some niceness for the Iraqis doesn't say anything about its unlawfullness.
