Administration should be brought up on war crimes

-A A +A
By The Staff

Dear Editor,

I am tired of people calling the invasion of Iraq a “mistake.” Forgetting the wedding anniversary is a mistake, not planning ahead is a mistake, spending all money in a casino is a stupid mistake. But invading Iraq was a criminal act of the U.S. government and should be treated as such by the next administration and the international community.

 Why is murder a crime and war not so much? Certainly not because the president did so.

It looks like the world periodically needs to redraw the fading line between right and wrong, and we must do it now for the sake of future generations so that these things do not happen again. Without an official condemnation, history is more likely to repeat itself. Perhaps, the war in Iraq could have been prevented had the U.S. participation in the Vietnam war been classified as a crime.
