I'm not here to debate, just make some brief remarks.
I remain steadfast in my opposition to this war. My avvy and title reflect this. Given America's track record in "installing democracy" I've no reason to feel we'll do the same here. However, I'm holding out hope that somehow, as few people as possible die, that we actually make Iraq a democratic nation, and that terrorism is greatly subdued. IMO there is a 99.9% chance that WON'T happen, but if it does, I promise to take back most of the nasty things I've said about Shrub. Right now, let's plan for the worst-case scenario and hope for the best-case scenario.
I will always support our young men and women serving (they're my peers after all) and I hope they all come home safe and sound. I also support the people of Iraq and their fighting men as well, they don't deserve to die either. I will never support Bush nor Hussein for once again proving the world is run by greedy old men, and using our young people to fight their battles.
