CP, I am very much in agreement with what you wrote. I support what our country is doing right now because I believe that while we can't do away with evil completely, we are called to limit it. I do not want innocent people to be hurt or die, and my heart is heavy in regards to that. I do want our country to stand up and protect us. From what I have seen so far, it appears that we are trying to fight this war with the minimum of harm to the Iraqi people. I have not seen or heard of any thing that would make me ashamed of my country. I am very proud to be an American citizen and I support our troops and what they are doing for us. I also am thankful for the support of the British and the Aussies and others who are aiding us.
