Moosejay. If one's own morality is to be determined by the actions of others then the very concept of moral behavior is made meaningless. I'd say pre-emptive wars of aggression, yorture and the elimination of habeas corpus have pretty much destroyed what it traditionally meant to be an American. Is life style and standard of living to be reduced to how many toys one has. I thought you quackopractors believed in a positive life force.
Those are some big words "Leon" but it wasn't preemptive as the majority of congress voted on it and not only did the US think there was WMD's but so did the world. Pull your head out of you're ass.
