You can believe what you want in the face of facts, but I'll give you one point, COLLATERAL damage is a FACT of warfare. We in the US military do all we can to prevent it because it is the right way (also so that we don't turn on liberal tear ducts). Name another country who does this.
As for other avenues to avoid war. Name them. What did we leave undone before we went to war in Iraq?
As for the "Government of Afghanistan." What government, the TALIBAN? They had DIRECT involvement with Al Kaa ka. What more did we need? Answer= NOTHING! They were complicit in the unprovoked killing of 3000 US citizens. That my unknowledgeble friend is an ACT OF WAR.
Acts of war are answered by WARFARE, not dialog, complaints, strongly worded criticisms or condemnations. It is followed by an old fashioned @$$ whipping like they got.
As for Facist? Puhleeze Moonbat, look up that word before you make even more of a fool of yourself. I have the benefit of nearly 10,000 posts since 2004 on this site. We'll see who is closest to a Facist by a vote. I'm willing to let this forum decide: Me or a leftist apologist like you.
