Lethargic IITian
Musings of a 20-something lethargic IITian on India and Catholicism.

Mark Shea speaks out his ambivalent views on the war against Iraq:

And yet, even a stopped clock is right twice a day. Sometimes war is necessary. I think this is one of those times.

And I beg to disagree. Any perceived "gains" (non-proliferation of possible nukes from Iraq, Iran and N. Korea to groups hostile to the US) of an attack on Iraq would be negated by the imperialist perception of a US that goes it alone. Ultimately, the hatred of human hearts is far more potent than any nuke. What nukes or advanced technology did the 9/11 terrorists use? Does Bush want to beget more of them with his bull-headed actions?

Mark, that's your answer. That's why, even though Pakistan has sponsored terrorism and bled my country (India) for over 50 years, I still do not advocate a straight-out attack or aggression. He who lives by the sword will die by it.
