Dubya's empowered by the will of the American people backed up by the muscle of the U.S. military, which we built up at considerable cost for just such an eventuality.
Of course he is. And obviously if America wants to do something, they are not going to be stopped by the bleating of weaker countries. There is no argument there.
Where morality comes into play is that he's doing what he's doing in order to protect America from attack by a savage enemy.
And that's just about the most moral thing any head of state can do for his people.
That is an important moral duty. It's simply my opinion that he is going about it in an immoral way. More civilians have died in Iraq and Afghanistan than in the Twin Towers and the Pentagon. I see no morality in this.
Besides, according to the post-modernist ideology now running roughshod over Canada morality is passé, don't you see.
It's running no less roughshod over America, and I daresay more. Try to look less at what governments say and more at how people live.
Whatever the case, if the U.N. or the 'international community' is the answer it's an awfully stupid question.
Why is that? Not meant as sarcastic criticism, and I don't necessarily disagree with you. I'm just wondering why you believe that.
