Ah, the irony: the conflict we started in Iraq, under the pretense of wanting to keep the world safe from Saddam Hussein's nuclear aspirations, has now outlasted our involvement in World War II, a conflict we ended by dropping atomic bombs on civilians. Interesting how the only nation to use nuclear weapons on civilians, which we did twice, became the moral authority on who should have nuclear weapons. We could at least be remorseful for our action and claim we don't want others repeating our tragic mistakes, but we instead insist they were right and justifiable acts. Well, here's hoping no one ends our current conflict with "right and justifiable acts."
