This is in response to a debate currently taking place between David and Rob.


Violent death is never a 'good' thing. However, violent death can serve a 'good' cause. There was plenty of violent death under Saddam. What purpose did it serve? The answer is NOTHING. The violent death in Iraq is in the service of freedom. While this is certainly little comfort to those who lose loved ones, it is some comfort. This has been true throughout modern human existence and especially so during the existence of the United States of America. Freedom is not free and its cost is the blood of brave men and women (I'm sure I'm not the first to say that, my apologies to the original 'author').

As for being able to remove Saddam without invading, you're still living in some alternate universe. Seriously, it wasn't going to happen. And in the process, how many innocents had to be slaughtered by the Butcher of Baghdad? Why don't you bring up those countless innocents who are buried in mass graves? You remember, the ones where were raped, gassed, detongued, decapitated, fed to tigers, thrown off rooftops, fed feet first into plastic shredders? Oh, I know why. You don't remember them because these atrocities were not committed in front of open Western Media. If there aren't pictures, it didn't happen, right?

So David, if you had to choose between the pointless, status quo, under Saddam and the deaths we are seeing in the Liberation (and you had to choose), which would it be?
