Also it's important to note that Pres. Hinckley said a military response in
response to the WTC bombing would be appropriate, but he has said nothing (yet)
about a war on Iraq.

The attack on Iraq has not yet been defined; it's kind of hard for anyone to
respond; the MX proposal was well underway, let alone well-defined by the time
Pres. Kimball and counsellors, responded. It was either in that statement or
elsewhere that Pres. Kimball made an interesting observation/prophecy: that there
was never a case where weapons that were made that they weren't eventually used.
