    that would be about as relevant as people who supported the Boer war. I opposed Iraq at a time when nobody I knew felt the same. It was an important issue to me.

    But come on - we've had eleven years of terrorist freak out. We've all learned, and we've all grown. I am prepared to accept that this is true even of people who did not see what i saw at the time.

        People die due to decisions we make or don't make all the time. If Bill Clinton, for instance, had taken a more interventionist view of Rwanda, for instance, a million more people would be on this Earth than are there today. Doesn't mean he would do the same thing if he got a do-over.

        Hindsight is 20/20. I'll require that be perfect of my leaders when they're all driving Deloreans.

          hundreds of thousands of people died because of our direct action. I find your comment very offensive.

            I know people from Rwanda - we had troops there, and our inaction was deadly, nation destroying, and unnecessary... spilling a sea of blood on a scale that made Iraq look like a schoolyard brawl. I won't split hairs about that... I guess if that's where you feel you have to go with it, I can't stop you.
