And So It Begins

May our forces be fortunate and successful, and may our souls find mercy and peace.

I believe we do this, by and large, with sincere intentions and rational expectations, which is no guarantee that it's necessarily the right thing to do.

I know that judgement calls involving the lives of millions or billions of people are distasteful, repugnant even to some, to many, but I don't see how they can be avoided. Let's hope for the best outcomes, for the people of Iraq and for ourselves.
