I participate in a political forum in which one of the conservatives posed the following question:
After reading all the negative posts, do you guys (meaning, liberals) wish Suddam was still in power ?
What follows is my response:
I don't think anyone who has any intelligence thought that Saddam was a good man and should be in power. However, it is one thing to say that he is a bad man and advocate his overthrow (or even support others to accomplish it); but it is totally another to take military action to topple a regime of a sovereign nation.
There are plenty of other nations with leaders who should be out of power. By your reasoning, does that mean that we have a moral obligation to topple every regime in the world we think is bad? Are you talking about the "C" word here? (Hint: it rhymes with "brigade")
If so, you better advocate reinstituting the draft; because you will need LOTS of soldiers for that kind of global pursuit.
