“Can't you agree killing 100,000 in trying to achieve "freedom" is wrong too?”
First saying again that that number is yet not applicable to Iraq,
no, killing 100,000 in trying to achieve freedom is not wrong. In World
War II the United States helped directly or indirectly to kill millions,
including civilians, including, though by accident or without the wish
for it, thousands of allied civilians, (bombings in France). The United
States did not do it for material gain. It killed, at the expense of
hundreds of thousands of its own, to bring freedom back then to other
than it’s own citizens, and in the long term to protect freedom
for those then and someday back home. Without that killing, much
of the world was immersed in lives not worth living by virtue of
the brutal aggressive tyrannies that governed them and only
at whose pleasure they drew breath. No, killing 100,000 in trying
to achieve freedom is not wrong.
No, killing 100,000 in trying to achieve freedom is not wrong.
P.S. Now one could say that even a dog wants to live.
To those who would have others live as animals
or would be content to do so themselves, I concede
your point. I do not, as my parents did not, share it.
P.S.S. No, killing 100,000 in trying to achieve freedom is not wrong.
