War is a part of life and while the WMD readon for Iraq was a bit silly (granted they would eventually go for them), it's going to do a tremendous amount for the people in that nation assuming their elected leadership takes a step forward rather than backwards. You're from Berkley though so your stance is expected. People are stupid and people rarely RARELY change. The only power for change true change in this world is "brainwashing" through either violence, education or the use of media.
