(1) Attacking Iraq is a wonderful thing.  Calling it a slaughter means
you aren't paying attention.
(2) We are fighting for freedom.  Thanks for the help of the British,
and for the rest of Europe protesting in their native languages instead
of German or Russian 'you are welcome'.
(3) It is a war of liberation.  It isn't required that there be only
_one_ reason for doing something.
