See Rick,

there are very many people in the world who are alive, just because it is illegal to kill them. I know by the time you posted that article and up to now you believe it does make alot of sense but just consider this.

America, as at July 8th 2008 had lost 4,115 service men in Iraq. Another 30,349 service members have been wounded in hostile action since the Iraq war began. Over 655,000 native Iraqis have lost their lives int his war. Which makes me think sometimes that;

"Why is president bush alive? Couldnt someone see, that time the whole world was saying No to an invasion that this man was up to something? Why wasnt he killed then to save these lives?"

To this point you should be able to tell just how much sense your article, "all of this could have been avoided". Or is it Ok for an american to preside over the deaths of so many hundreds of thousands of Iraqis, and not ok for an iranian like Ayatollah?
