CNN is soliciting short opinions from readers, so I wrote one up and sent it to them tonight. It is the following:
“Anti-war is not anti-American, it’s cruelly naive. Calling the war immoral is supporting Saddam, a brutal dictator who has been documented (by Amnesty International) torturing thousands of individuals in his own country suspected of dissent. Common methods include electric shock, physical disfigurement, severe beatings, and rape exhibitions involving female relatives or acquaintances of the accused.
This is a war that should be waged not as Americans, but as decent, and moral human beings.
