I'm hoping Eva Small could explain how launching thousands of cruise missiles toward Baghdad, killing horrific numbers of civilians, and causing a humanitarian catastrophe that will be felt for generations, will, as she puts it, "make the world truly a more peaceful place." Whose world is she referring to? Certainly not ours.
She praises Bush's "moral conviction" toward an action that is almost universally seen as completely disproportionate to the threat. It's important to realize President Bush couldn't muster a moral majority so he strong-armed an immoral minority, which Mrs. Small appears to be a proud member of. Mrs. Small complains how she's tired of "left-wing radicals." I would suggest that it is radicalism to advocate debatably the most hated and feared political administration in history. While I support our troops, as most Americans do, I fear the short-sightedness and brutality of our administration, as most Americans do.
