The targets of these attacks are our military forces and our civilian population, in direct violation of one of the principal norms of the law of warfare. As was demonstrated by the losses on September 11, 2001, mass civilian casualties is the specific objective of terrorists and these losses would be exponentially more severe if terrorists acquired and used weapons of mass destruction.

And the US has never been guilty of attacts on civilian populations, in which mass civilian casualties was the specific objective? How about Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Dresden? How about Vietnam? How about the carpet bombing of Iraqi cities in 1991? How about the 1993 bombing of Basra, Iraq?

How about Kosovo? You forget to mention Bill Clinton's little wag-the-dog war. But then you sound like a liberal so I'm sure you have selective memoty.

Don't compare Iraq to events in WWII. Should I mention Adolf Hitler? Communism alone has murdered millions upon millions of innocent people, without the bombs. Vietnam...Democrate started it, ran it. Basically screwed it up.

Stop the Bush bashing and read some history books!
