jdinca said:I disagree. Christians don't think it's perfectly okay to kill non-Christians, just because they're not Christian. The radical muslims the world is now dealing with think that this is perfectly legitimate and, in the truly extreme ranks, feel it is their duty.
I also disagree that the architects of this war didn't envision this result. It's been discussed since the beginning that this was a possibility, it just wasn't what they hoped would happen.
As for the Palestinian Authority, I think the world is going to watch it implode as a result of this election. Yes, this was a democratic election but the rest of the world has a right to disagree with the outcome and not deal with the resulting government.
Even if Christians don't 'think' its okay to kill non-Christians, non-religious observers would note the actions, rather than the thoughts. If one is curious about the 'actions', I would direct you to www.iraqbodycount.net
I am not certain that I made a claim about what the 'architects' envisioned. Although we do know that they felt the war would be short, and the Iraqi's would greet us with 'chocolate' and 'flowers'.
We have a right to disagree with the outcome? He said incredulously ... except the cases of Florida in 2000 and Ohio in 2004, eh?
So much for 'Supporting Democracy', only if its 'our democracy'.
