Since when has the war in Iraq been about freedom? I don't recall any Iraqi's attempting to take any of my freedoms.

Sad though it is, I find myself agreening with pretty much everything you say. However - for me this is why Wikileaks is so important, because it has got this debate out into the open. There may be nothing Jo Public can do about it (Although I am not so sure I completely agree with that) but at least he now knows.

If stories like this can cause people to just stop and think for a moment, then that is effecct enough for now. It will be remebered. Who knows what effect it may have in the long run?

Because I can't think of a single one.


Eh, delete my post. Someone already schooled him.

What does "freedom" have to do with any of this?

Who's freedom? Not ours; not theirs. War for a cause is bad enough, but war without reason is simply murder on a grand scale; not worth losing even a single life.

It's clear that no one cares what's happens as long as it doesn't effect them.

This story will quickly be forgotten, I'm sure...
