    WMD's, false. Nuclear ambitions, false. Immediate threat to Americans, false. Immediate threat to anyone outside of Baghdad, false.

    WAR is what we belived and it is WAR that we have. WAR is a fuck-up but it is WAR that we have. To question the WAR is unacceptable; or is it?

    One DEAD or one injured American is cause for me to question the reason for it.

    From a corporate point of view, I am already aware of "acceptable" casualties. I suspect most Americans are not.

    I'm not sure I can do 'Psychospeak' but my take from his postings: 'War may be necessary, but not worth one life. Acceptable casualties are not acceptable, ya dig it?'

    Actually, Kathianne, you are pretty close on this one but not exact.

    I fully understand that WAR will cost lives, ambitions, disrupt families and even question one's national interests and political leanings. Let me go a little further. I think WAR exploits the ignorance of the population that wages it and it's perceived outcome is calculated in profittable dollars rather than lives. I also think that the most lives lost in WAR are of those that have no interest in it whatsoever. That leaves the Dollar and Power side of the equation.

    You are generally, in my opinion, wise in your analogies. Give your analogy in this predicament, please?

    I take it that you don't enjoy the wisdom of Kathianne. Or am I wrong in this assumption?

    Psycho. We aren't stupid. You never believed the war was acceptable. Why exactly should we listen to you know when you are trying to pretend that suddenly its unacceptable since "Bush lied" You've been claiming that since 911.

    Who said Iraq was an immediate threat? Who said Iraq has WMDs?

    War is a great way to solve the world's worst problems.
