I wanted, really I did, to have irrefutable evidence presented to me in a way I could understand. I wanted Cuba Missile Crisis photos. I wanted informants named. I wanted nothing held back. I wanted brevity.
Instead I got more hand-waving.
I want to believe that my government has good reasons to attack Iraq. I want to believe that they have better evidence than they are showing me.
Lacking that, I cannot support the actions of my government. I am glad that the troops that will, inevitably, be sent in will have every advantage we can give them. I can hope that civilian loss of life will be minimal.
I cannot, however, support this war nor an administration that feels it must foment it.
