I don't think that it's stupid to ask, after you've asserted that you think it's "just as scary living in the US as Iraq", to ask you what you base that assertion on.
This is a big problem with the anti-war left, the tendency to make assertions that are ultimately empty.
There's an especially infuriating Zinn essay in the new issue of the Massachusets School of Law at Andover's journal which is just four and a half pages of empty assertions that go nowhere in offering an alternative to handling the situation in Iraq.
Once again, I think an honest and well-reasoned opposition to the war exists, I might even support it, but I haven't seen it expressed here or anywhere else. If someone can point me to that alternative I'd be glad to look into it, because I don't like thinking that any military action is even acceptable. It certainly isn't coming from the Chomsky/Moore/Zinn camp.
