Allow me to respond to some of the comments made about my previous letter.
First, I am not so irrational that I condone bombing schools, killing children, etc. Where was your stance when Bill Clinton bombed the "evil" aspirin factory in Sudan to take the heat off of his domestic troubles? However, I am a rational thinker that realizes that even as accurate as our precision-guided munitions are (I used to work on design teams that built such devices), there are some that go astray (weather conditions, countermeasures, mechanical failures, etc.) and some innocent destruction will occur. You would measure our failures by the number of innocents killed while evils like Saddam and Bin Laden measure successes by that exact same measure. You speak of destroyed schools, murdered parents etc. to inflame anger. The reality is that Saddam created this fear, only more widespread. There were prisons full of children, rape vans that roamed the streets, mass graves, etc.
