    underlies my support for Desert storm, why should i?

    The SCOTUS is extraordinary.

      don't understand why you are trying to argue one over the other given that they are really the same conflict evolving over the past 20 years and that they involve 2 ruling families both of which are wreaking havoc on their countries.  Those 2 families being the House of Saud and the Bushs.  Both conflicts are symbolic of a much larger systemic problem in this country of the military industrial complex and its role in dictating our foreign policy through the marriage of the CIA and executive branch of the government.  This corporate imperialism is the underlying force behind our foreign policy at this point.

      Why waste time trying to show how one war was better than the other when the first made the second possible.  If the first had never happened than we wouldn't be here now having this arguement over W's conduct in Iraq.

      Finally, if whether or not Desert Storm was a just war is of little consequence to you than what exactly is your premise for supporting that war?  

      I take political action every day. I teach.
