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.
