What a few thousand dead foreigners when the prestige of our Ruling Class is at stake?

Pearl Harbor was a limited air strike with no boots on the ground.  Therefore not an act of war.

Come to think of it, so was 9/11.  Sure there were civilian casualities.  But what we learned from our own harvest of 116,000 Iraqi civilian casualties and a skyrocketing Iraqi birth defect rate due to our gift of depleted uranium is that civilian casualties are something to shrug off when you are Sending a Message or working for the Greater Good.  It’s so *good* to see the US and her “enemies” thinking in exactly the same way.
