Before I begin, what on earth happened to the practice of posting on this board. It seemed to stop as soon as the war started. Any way, this is a war philosophy I have which I think puts the big war debate into perspective, and I welcome commentary: If you are given two choices- a.kill 5 innocent people, and b.let 1000 innocent people die, and you choose b., then you have knowingly and willingly allowed the deaths of 995 extra innocent people. Is that any better than mass murder?
