No 'moral boundary' in Iraq, Afghanistan?

Letter to the editor

President Bush must not understand irony. When he vetoed stem cell research legislation, he stated that the bill "would support the taking of innocent lives," and "it crosses a moral boundary that our decent society needs to respect."

This administration and Congress have the blood of thousands of innocent lives from Iraq, Afghanistan and now the broader Middle East on their hands. We are the strongest nation on Earth, and we did have substantial power to advocate and persuade others to use diplomacy over force and violence. I assume the reason we chose, and continue to choose, violence over diplomacy is that there is no "moral boundary" or "innocent lives" involved. No irony there.
