Immoral by what definition?

Taliban gunmen stake out a schoolhouse in Afghanistan so they can murder school girls as they leave the school to go home. One of them is 13, shot multiple times in front of her 12-year-old sister. One of them is 25 years old and married, determined to pursue the education that was interrupted by the Taliban, but instead the Taliban forever robs her of that dream -- and her life.

Al-Qaeda in Iraq kills children and then plants explosives on their bodies. Or extends a lunch invitation to a local family it wants to convert to its way of thinking, but when lunch is served the main course is the barbecued body of their son.

Tell me again how this is an immoral war? Tell me again why we shouldn't be fighting this fight? Tell me again how it is that our country has lost its moral standing in the world?

Mistakes? Yes. But immoral and wrong?

    90% of the fighting in Iraq has NOTHING to do with the extremist foreign jihadist calling themselves Al Qaeda in Irag or other similar Salafi groups.

    Iraq was a SECULAR regime which was targeted BY Al Qaeda. Just as Iran is an ENEMY of the Taliban, which is reforming because of our shifting of resources to invade Iraq, the single worst disaster in foreign policy in our nation's history.

    Stop being an idiot and realize that the invasion and occupation of Iraq has NOTHING to do with fighting terrorism.

    Keep drinking the "War on Terror" kool-aid ya morons.

    There it is, ladies and gentlemen, a prime example of a liberal's devastating wit and argumentative power -- "idiot" and "morons."

    Not to mention the fact that the only correlation to my original post is the use of the words "Iraq" and "al-Qaeda" a few times. Could we go back to the question of why it's immoral to fight against scumbags who put bullets in the hearts of 13-year-old girls and barbecue young boys as a means of coercion?
