Well, its finally happened, we are attacking Iraq. Despite what most people probably think, I'm not exactly a warmonger thinking we should kill them all and let God sort them out. There are a lot of innocent people in Iraq that are going to be killed in this mess, and that is a tragedy. That being said I'm also a realist. As nice as it would be for us all to hold hands and sing Kumbayah and just get along, that just isn't feasible with sadistic batards such as Saddam Hussein. There are evil people in the world and Saddam is one of them. The people of Iraq are suffering under his rule now, and if he gets a chance he will make sure other people throughout the world suffer as well. You cannot reason with evil men, you can only defeat them.
President Bush has let this drag on a long time, giving it every chance to end peacefully. At some point though action had to be taken, you can't just keep yelling stop or I'll yell stop again. At some point you have to backup your words with actions and that time has come. I have great respect for President Bush, and for the men and women of our military. I hope victory is decisive and swift, my prayers are with them all.
