Hindsight being what it is; if the circumstances of September 11th were known on September 9th and actions were taken against Afganistan and the terrorists on September 10th; I suspect alot of you would be yelling that this was a war of aggression and not self-defense.
Further, I suspect as President Bush said a few days ago, it will take a mushroom cloud over some U.S. city to take action against Sadam. I guess an actual attack on the U.S. changes doves into hawks; or does it. Once a dove always a dove. --- "Marc A.
