So…what a mess. What is there to say? I mean I think this whols situation is a tragic mess. As much as we want to pretend that no innocent civilians are being killed that would be wron,g and denying the probabilities of war. Innocent lives are being lost. We can argue all day over whether or not they would have died anyway because of Saddam, or starved do death because of American sanctions or murdered by thugs in an anarchistic Iraq (Side note all the idiot twentysomethings that support anarchy, send them on a field trip to Iraq).

The question from an ethical standpoint: How many innocent lives are the terrorists worth?
