Obligatory reminder not everyone on your (where applicable) friends list is "against the war:"

If it were a choice between fighting in Iraq and not fighting at all, I would not advocate war. That seems to be the unspoken assumption in most anti-war (or anti-warblogger) rhetoric: the only reason there's going to be war is because we're going to cause it. If we just give up on that, no wars will happen at all. I don't believe that. What I think is that if we don't take the war to our enemies, they will eventually bring the war to us. My choice is not between war and no war, but between limited and controlled wars fought on our own terms elsewhere, and unlimited and devastating war fought in the US itself. I can't accept the latter, so I am forced to advocate the former. --
