Re: reversed causality

By Domenico Bettinelli, Jr. (articles ) | Mar 26, 2003

Another strange statement from Archbishop Tauran was his insistence that soldiers be lumped in as "innocents," too when we say that the injury of innocents in the war should be avoided. Are these the same "innocents" fighting from within hospitals, firing mortars into crowds of civilians, posing as American soldiers and executing Iraqi soldiers who surrender, and so forth? Are these the same "innocents" who killed 500,000 Shiites and Kurds in 1993?

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
