Subject: RE: BS: US war with Iran begins
"I think there is a good point to be made here that there is ample justification to take out Solemeini on the basic facts of who he was, where he was, and his past activities."

On that same basis, there is more than ample justification to take out (or to have taken out) Dubya, Ariel Sharon, Menachem Begin, JFK, LBJ, Nixon, Tony Blair, Thatcher, Pinochet and Reagan. It's a basis I don't accept. And one more time. Why the euphemistic "take out?" What's wrong with kill, slaughter in cold blood, assassinate, extra-judicially murder, blow to kingdom come? Why can't you say what you mean? Is it about wrapping up the killing of dissident Muslims (as opposed to any of "us") in fake respectability?
