As you might see soon, english is not my mothertongue. And since english speaking people are used to others stumble around in their language, I hope I don't make too much of an idiot of myself here. So - my deepest apologies adressed to the English Language for not worshipping her better.

Times of war call for different beahviour?
Well, at the first look it sounds okay, when I read something like :
I would not have called you anti-American before this day if you protested and shouted slogans, even if you called the president a murderer. I would not want to crush your dissent or shut you up. But times of war call for different behavior. For our enemies and our soldiers to see a nation divided can only lead to terrible things.
Remember your history.
here at micheles place.
But when you use your brain (just in case you have one and didn't lose it while posting pro-war), you see here so many problems, some in the logic side and some just in the difference between them and us.
Sure, I do hope that all soldiers might come back home healthy and without any psychosis and that all Iraqi children would survive and never have to fear anything again. But I also know, this won't possibly happen. There will be soldiers killed and suffering from worst psychosis when they will come back. There will be many civilians being killed. Most accidentally, but what does it count when you're dead?
There still will be children starving at this area. And they won't have any democracy, just because the US will win this war. Look at Afghanistan. Did they get Bin Laden? No. Do they have real peace? No. Do they have democracy? Well... no. So, what do you think, how good are the chances that it will work this time? Go and support your troops, they will really need it or how would you feel having to risk your life in a war your president wants and needs bitterly?
