Connecting the dots.....

As you read the news from Fallujah & now Mosul please recall that in 1946, the Nuremberg Tribunal rejected German arguments of the necessity for preemptive attacks against its neighbors and instead outlawed preventive war as a crime against the peace. In the Tribunal's judgment:

"To initiate a war of aggression, therefore, is not only an international
crime; it is the supreme international crime differing only from other war
crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole."

possibly 800 civilian dead in Fallujah; the killing of a wounded Iraqi in a mosque;& of course our plan to rebuild Fallujah,-- some companies will turn a nice profit ...nothing like a little war to help the bottom line.praise jesus

More from the Bard

"Beware the leader who bangs the drums of war in order to whip the citizenry into a patriotic fervor, for patriotism is indeed a double-edged sword.  It both emboldens the blood, just as it narrows the mind.  And when the drums of war have reached a fever pitch and the blood boils with hate and the mind has closed, the leader will have no need in seizing the rights of the citizenry.
