Kerri’s friend moominpapa writes a post ranting and raving about many things related to the war in Iraq.
dropped cluster bombs and cruise missiles on cities, towns and villages, remember?
Iraqi citizens had to be cluster bombed
And on and on.
While I think that they (I’ve no idea if they are male or female) share some of the same concerns that I have about how this war was sold, they lose credibility with me when they start talking about cluster bombing cities.
Do you know what a cluster bomb is used for? Do you know where they are dropped? Somehow I doubt that.
Do you think we set out to kill civilians intentionally? Somehow I think you believe that we did — and that the military flew about and gleefully killed civilians?
Are you a military expert? Do you know where and when to use cluster bombs? Were they the right weapon to use in Basra and other places where they were dropped? Were they dropped a controlled environment?
Would you have preferred that the cluster bombs not be utilized and a hundred British or US Soldiers been killed? How about fifty? Twenty? Where do you draw the line?
And the general feeling I get from reading this is that you’d be happier if Saddam was back in power? Since we have him in custody, I’m sure we could arrange that.
And I’m sure there would be much rejoicing.
