Doesn't "not necessary" equal immoral? 27.Jun.2006 14:53


"People in the U.S. military may not all believe the war was smart or necessary, but they don't believe it was immoral."

So says a Brookings Institute military expert. Hmm, seems to me that if it's unnecessary, it sure as HELL is immoral! 50,000 +++ unnecessary deaths? That's not immoral???? What is with these people anyway???
