What's so disturbing about all this war thing is that it will set a dangerous precedent for similar behavior on the part of any other country in the world besides us. Pre-emption is a new, scary thing---to go into a country unprovoked with no real, solid evidence that you can show, other than that their leader is unstable (and, to me, that's the pot calling the kettle black) and that they might have weapons, none of which compare to the number and magnitude of our own. If we can do this now, then so can everyone else---it will change the face of the world forever. It will render the United Nations and international law null and void. It will result in paranoia and chaos run amuck. The world doesn't like a bully--and we're looking much more like the bully than anyone else.
