I forgot a very important issue that has yet to be brought up as well.
Is the War in Iraq ethical?
See previous post for my whole long spiel about the sanctity of BLOG. Please respect all guidelines and opinions here as well, as people may not share your own.
I say nay. The War in Iraq is not ethical. This is because the true reasons that we are there have been hidden under red tape, and have, even currently, been hidden from the public. The government's job is for the people, and when the people are not being told what the government is doing then there is a breach of etiquette. This breach or etiquette is what makes this unethical. I agree with what I see as the reasons for us going to Iraq are, but that is irrelevant. I oppose it all the same because it isn't ethical for the Govt to hide facts from the public, any more than it is ethical to impersonate a lawyer to capture a psychopath. What we need to understand is that there is a difference between morals and ethics. Morally both are acceptable (to me at least), but ethically they break the code of honor (the Constitution and Laws) that this country is based on, and indeed the citizens gain power from. Therefore: The War in Iraq is not ethical.
