War Arguments

This article makes a few points worth reading, but I do not agree with Paul Berman's conclusion at all. Yes, Saddam is plenty evil, and yes, I believe that war can theoretically be justified if killing a few people now will really prevent an even larger number of people from being killed later. However, the U.S. is using carcinogenic depleted uranium missiles whose half-life expiration date won't arrive until the year 4400002003 A.D.! Think about exactly how many people can die or be born with horrendous birth defects in all those years. You think our supposed attempt to bring "democracy" to this generation of Iraqis (even if you're naive enough to believe Bush actually has any real interest in democracy at all) can really justify killing off that many future generations? I THINK NOT.
