"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Again, for those who opposed the war who think that we who supported it only thought about WMD or oil, imagine you were this woman. Halima Karim is searching through plastic bags of personal effects found among the dead in a mass grave of 5,000. She is looking for her missing son. I know that many places are just as bad (if not worse. N Korea, for one) but is that sufficient reason to resent the demise of Saddam's regime? Would you tell her that we have done her and her people a great wrong? What do you think she would say to you?
