Have You Changed Your Mind About the War in Iraq?
Many people were initially for or against the possibility of a war in Iraq. Now that it is a reality and troops are on the ground, have you changed your mind or your position on the war?
Do you think that anti-war protests should cease? Do you think that an even greater divide has opened up between those who hold differing ideologies?
Do you think that the suspension of certain civil liberties for security reasons is appropriate during war time? Do YOU feel safer? Will the world be more secure because of this action?
What – if anything – concerns you the most about the war in Iraq?

The war has been been a gray area for me. I don't think it is wrong to remove Saddam's regime, he is a psycho who has committed atrocities against his own people. But my heart was breaking for all who would suffer as we anticipated the beginning of this war.
American troops are now in Iraq whether we like it or not. War is happening and we cannot turn back. I don't see the purpose of any more war debate (finish the war and help the Iraqi people move on) . It would better serve the situation to put our energy into prayers or rituals to whatever deity we are aligned with, asking for safe return of our troops, civilian safety and a brighter future for Iraq. I believe that by starting this war, our country and Britain and others have committed ourselves to helping the Iraqi people build a more humane government and establish a free, prosperous society.
Now that the war is under way, i feel that i must be supportive to our courageous troops and urge our government to follow through with helping the Iraqi people restore their dignity and livelihood.

Skeggi (and anyone else) , if you wish to draw people into arguments about their opinions, i don't think this is the place to do it. I personally don't feel the need to defend my opinion or my belief. You can email me or invite me to a discussion elsewhere, and anyone else you disagree with, but i'm not going to bite and be drawn into a fracas here, where the editors have graciously given us a forum to state our opinions and specifically asked us NOT to engage in arguing or 'attacking' other people. Obviously, i'm not the only one who thinks like i do, and obviously, not all pagans think the same. And if we did, what would that make us?
So thanks for agreeing to disagree and leaving it at that. The divine light in me honors the divine light in you.
