Nothing wrong with disrupting governments but have we ever hijacked a civilian jet airliner,
crashed it into a huge civilian office building and killed thousands of innocent people?
Hmm, let me think, not that I can recall.

You are wrong we are not calm we are furious, you are wrong the objectives
could not be more clear, but are you also wrong about the war being indeterminate?
I hope so but I honestly don't know. I do know this war will cause all sorts of problems
that I don't pretend to know how to solve, and it will be dangerous, very dangerous.
The only reason we should fight it anyway is that not fighting it would be even more dangerous.

What's this "we" crap? Speak for yourself.
