Restrained by Christian ethics

Reader comment on item: Decision Time on Iran

Submitted by Ralph C Whaley MD (United States), Oct 31, 2006 at 17:13

The President will wait and wait until America is attacked with destructive consequences that make 9/11/2001 look trivial. Christian ethics is his weakness that will allow this to happen. His actions in Afghanistan ordering the military to drop food packages rather than bombs that could have ended any capability of the enemy there to ever be athreat to America again and changing the name of the mission to Iraqi Freedom rather than defense of America shows his dedication to compassionate war.

Compassion for the so-called innocents in Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia,Syria, Somalia, Darfur, Sudan,lebanon, North Korea all prevent our President frorm using the weapons at his disposal that could have ended this war with total victory with less loss of American lives than we suffer daily in Iraq. That is profound neglect of his responsibility and his name will live in infamy for all time for his inaction.

If Americans launched a massive demand for all out war using our most powerful weapons we could still avoid the looming calamity. I doubt that will happen, much to our sorrow.
