"This is why you dont go to war unless your national security is at risk by not going."
So you were opposed to the war in 1991? I can't see that your threshold of "national security at risk" was met in 1991.
Don't you think that you are setting the bar too high? Why shouldn't we be able to use our military in circumstances in which our national security is not directly threatened?

My arguments is one that says we should know the difference between military objectives and non-military objectives. That we should be realistic about what a military can and cannot achieve in and for another country. Only when we are clear about this, can we be clear about what our goals should be.
