    That's all I've heard for years, now. Does the same standard apply?

    Bah! Everyone, who is being honest and not trying to pick a political bone, knows that we only killed Iraqi civilians in the hundreds, and that was not policy, of course. They were killed as collateral damage in bombing, by overzealous troops at checkpoints and in convoys, or by the occasional psychotic. Most Iraqi civilian deaths were caused by IEDs and carbombs, set off by insurgents. It is our responsibility, however, since we chose to invade Iraq and destabilize it, and disband the Army. That's perfectly acceptable to me.

    So the question is, what the the correct moral calculation? Then and now?

    Is America willing to pay that price?

    If it didn't apply before, why are you applying it now? Or do you only judge liberal presidents?

    You said, "we", armed Qadaffi.

    I said, " no we didn't".

    You used French aircraft sales to Libya to backup your comment.

    My point is, we didn't arm Qadaffi.
