    Is it wrong to aspire for peace in Iraq? I never said that I support the war, did I? 🙂

    Re: Pran Kurup

    No! You didn’t say you support the war; nor did I indict you of any war love! 😉

    But who created the war in Iraq? To me, there is nothing heroic or special in trying to snuff out the flame you have lighted! That only is my point my Lord. :-))
