I about a former hard leftist (Labor), still PC and pro EU unionist Blair? Or a former indited business man Berlusconi? Or a former hard core communist in present day Poland? Which of America's allies' leaders don't have something questionable in their past, to include Bush himself? People change, at least Christianity allows us to see it that way.
By the way, in your above post you neglected to come up with an excuse for the other point the poster raised, namely Russia's supplying Saddam with that jamming equipment. The excuse given by Moskow at the time was that our missiles could end up killing civilians. But of course, jamming the missiles' guidance systems greatly increased the risk to civilians.
"People change, at least Christianity allows us to see it that way."
Yes indeed Christianity is the light, and Christ warned we Christians 'Take heed that no man deceive you'!
