    Wolfowitz, Rumsfeld, Cheney et al probably killed over 100,000 Iraqis because it seemed "the right thing to do".

    How can we actually reduce the number of innocent lives lost? That's the real question, and unfortunately since the ascendence of Ronald Reagan the only answers acceptable to the 'Very Serious People' involve dropping high explosives in massive quantities on other nations, generally Muslim.

    My take on this is that we'd prevent a lot more innocent death and suffering if we stopped arming nations to the teeth, drastically reduced the size of our military, stopped backing a rapacious Israeli occupation of Palestinian land, and took major steps to address global warming before the looming third world holocaust it's going to inflict on humanity.

      You have convinced me, except for perhaps the part about Israeli occupation of Palestinian land. Your analysis is, aside from that, spot on.
