I'm not saying that at all. I'm saying that leaders make the best decisions they can in most cases. Bush probably made a huge mistake taking our military into Iraq, but I honestly believe that, having made the mistake, he's interested in helping the Iraqi people in the aftermath of the destruction of their state and that if we can avoid it we will not simply pull out and abandon them to their fate. Think about what might have happened had we not dropped the bomb then. There would have been a first use. Maybe against North Korea. Maybe against the Soviet Union. The good news is that the U.S. and the Soviet Union have studiously avoided using nukes for more than 50 years. They wisely built a doctrine that placed a heavy, heavy emphasis on never having to use nukes. And that doctrine, I believe, is the result of having a practical, real life example of the consequences of using atomic weapons. It's not a justification, and yet we have to be thankful that history didn't turn out differently.
