Lest We Forget




"War does not confer a license to kill for personal reasons ... War is not a license at all, but an obligation to kill for reasons of state; it does not countenance the infliction of suffering for its own sake or for revenge."

--Telford Taylor, US chief prosecutor at the Nuremberg trial

Lynn,

Your blog is great. As a citizen of Oklahoma City, you know terrorism first hand. That orrendous event gets shadowed by 911. It shouldn't. Terrorists live among us and they are not necesarily Muslim.
