Wolfowitz Says U.S. Must Act Even on 'Murky' Data.

Reuters: U.S. Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz on Sunday defended the invasion of Iraq as an example of how the United States had to be prepared to act on “murky intelligence” in its war on terrorism…

You do not wage war and kill people because you think they did something wrong. You have to know they did something wrong, more and more, this whole war smells of war profiteering to me, completely wrong and immoral, unjustified. I support the troops entirely, I don't support the politics and rhetoric of those that sent them there. Men and women have died because of Murky Evidence, that is in my book not acceptable. There is a place where you are 'sure enough' that is good enough for me, but apparently they weren't sure of anything. The government of the U.S. seems to have systematically misleading the public on this one, there is no tie to Al Queda, no tie to WMD, no other tie at all except the franchise of ones father… I'm happy to be proven wrong on this, but other than to make money on Oil, and the human rights abuses(not mentioned until recently by our apparently similarly abusive regime), I do not see what the justification is.
