Hussein: the little boy who cried wolf - Old Blog Post

I've also noticed that many people have different views on going to war vs. not going to war. Most people, in general, don't want war to ever happen. There are those few military folk who live for it, but for the most part, I think most of us would rather avoid it.

There is a time for war... even if we hate it... even if we don't understand it. But no man or group of people should be able to be so horribly evil and allowed to be set loose on the rest of the world. This isn't just a little argument between two men. This is the fate of a planet (if I may be so bold) that is at stake.

Can we let someone with so obvious lake of caring run around while we say... "oops, guess he went and done it again... should we do anything about it... should we just turn the other cheek and let him hurt people over and over.... guess so".

Ever heard of the little boy who cried wolf. How many times do you allow your child to do something wrong before taking some sort of action.

Isn't it something like 1. tell them not to do it 2. tell them not to do it loudly 3. time out 4. take something away for the day 5. take something away for the week 6. spanking (if you believe in them, of course).

Can we use this same tactic with a mad man? How many lives will be lost if we go through these same six steps? He is not a 5 year old little boy.

Do I want us to go to war? No, I don't.

Do I think it's time to take action? Yes.

Does that mean going to war? Probably.

Will I support the decision of our president? Yes, I will.

Does that make me a bad person? Yes and No... it really depends upon who's reading this.

There is no other answer to that last questions is there? It seems that what is right and wrong depends entirely upon who is speaking and who is listening. We all have our own beliefs and... degrees of beliefs. What is the most important to Bob down the street may mean nothing to Sally in the next town.

Am I passionate about war? Absolutely not... but action must be taken because sooner or later the bluff will be called and the next question is... are we ready for it?

May we each take the moment necessary out of this day and any day we feel the need to remember those who have gone before us in defense of our freedoms. Without them... we would not be "here"... we would be in chains. ~Bug~
