Christian Pundits' Comments Dredged Up From Potential Obscurity

I found this exchange on Christian Pundits' blog and thought it needed a bit of daylight. I wrote to her and received her permission to drag it out in the open.

You want to know why the war in Iraq is wrong, and why any good christian who supports Bush in this war should be ashamed of themselves. Click on this link. Open your eyes.
The following link has GRAPHIC pictures (unknown origin) of wounded and dead civilians. - prying1 -

Response to tw.

Sorry, but if your link was meant to shock or shame me into admitting that our military action in Iraq is wrong, it didn't work.

Yes, there are innocent victims of warfare, and I grieve for the families of those affected by it.

But what about these innocent victims?

And please don't give me that liberal song-and-dance about Hussein not having anything to do with the 9/11 attacks.

Even Hillary Clinton admitted that Saddam "has given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda members."

But if the senseless murder of over 3000 Americans isn't enough to convince you that Hussein had to be stopped, maybe this will.

"From 1977 to 1987, between 4,500 and 5,000 Kurdish villages in northern Iraq were destroyed and the population placed in 'resettlement camps.' As many as 50,000 Kurds died.

In the spring of 1987, thousands of Kurds were killed by chemical and conventional bombs. In at least 40 cases, Gen. Ali Hasan al-Majid, "Chemical Ali," used chemical weapons to kill or chase Kurds from villages.

In 1988, as many as 5,000 Kurds were killed and 10,000 injured in Halabja.

During the Anfal campaign, from February to September 1988, Iraqi soldiers rounded up more than 100,000 Kurds, mostly men and boys, and executed them.

More than 1-million Kurds fled and tens of thousands were killed or imprisoned when Iraq crushed an uprising after the 1991 Persian Gulf War." SOURCE

Wouldn't "any good christian" do everything they can to stop those atrocities tw?
