Just to make sure y'all stay focused on reality...
No one wants war (unless they are lunatics), no one likes war (ditto), but sometimes war is inevitable, sometimes it is necessary - regardless of how tasteless and heartwrenching it is.
and please, for the sake of your sanity, if you have to blame someone, make sure you are blaming those who truely caused it. America did not start what may or may not happen (we haven't gone to war yet, remember?) Bush did not cause the war. Saddam caused it, Saddam created the conflict, Saddam is the one to blame. Our country and those allies who have the intestines to stand with us (thank you UK and others), are not starting this possible war, we are preparing to end it. The reality is that the war isn't started by the first shot fired, it is merely continued along its course by that shot. The conflict starts long before combat does.
Yesterday is ash, tomorrow is smoke; only today does the fire burn.
