You Misunderstood Me!

Reader comment on item: Israel's Unnecessary War in Lebanon
in response to reader comment: On the American civilians being killed by Iraqis

Apparently you misunderstood me when I said that innocent civilians die on both sides of the war!

I spent two tours of duty in Viet Nam and I think I have seen just about every hideous inhumane act that could be done to a human being.As I recall,I was discussing the innocent civilians that would die on both sides of the Lebanon -Israeli conflict. I wasn't talking about the American - Iraq war. I was never in favor of going to Iraq in the first place! I was merely making a statement that innocent lives would be lost on both sides of this conflict.

You cannot place a value or compare a lost life in a conflict such as this.I have no idea why you chose to verbally attack me concerning things that have allegedly happened Iraq! This forum was discussing the Israel - Lebanon conflict!I am NOT a warhawk, but I thoroughly believe that Israel is in the right to respond to the Hezbollah attacks!
