10. but they would have died anyhow

 

simple math.
raw cold number actuary facts.

that and the fact that the patriot act was voted on 3 times, and passed, easily all 3 times.

war sucks, but has been around since the dinasaurs were around.
and always will be

therefore remember the serenity thingy

accept what you can not change
change what you can
and know the difference

and know that the same people there would have died anyhow, by the wars there without us involved at all

but without the gun here, the 26 would be alive
without cowards and extremists and anarchists like McVeigh, that never would have happened in Oklahoma City

and the Waco people killed themselves, and killed federal agents
now, it took a while to figure Waco out.
But then someone in NY doesn't much know about gun stockpiling, and how the horror in Waco was the others, not the leader, who could have been arrested elsewhere.
But had he, who knows how many tens of thousands might have died in the carnage those people would have caused with their guns.

so one needs to step back and see the whole picture

and collateral will always have died just in a different method of war

as Richard Clarke(whom liberals loved after 9-11 for his words againast Bush) said a few weeks ago.Drones save lives.

Who wouldn't have wanted a drone to fall on Hitler the day before the first person was arrested or killed?
Same with McVeigh the day before
the same with OBL the day before the plan was hatched

etc.

I know I do wish that. Much less collateral damage.
