Of course we are at war in Iraq.

It is an illegal war, violating international law as well as our own standards & laws as Americans.

It is a terrorist war, killing hundreds of thousands of Iraqi civilians over the past decade & a half for the purposes of "Shock and Awe" and to encourage "Regime Change".

But it is without question war, in the same way that our other "undeclared" wars, our "interventions" & our support of terrorist governments who warred upon their citizens (Panama, Grenada, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Mexico, Nicaragua, Chile, Columbia, Argentina, Guatemala, Libya, Lebanon, Phillipines, Somalia, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Taiwan, Indonesia, Iraq, Iran, Israel, Afghanistan, Turkey, and on & on.) are war.

Whatever "Pravda-like" name you want to call it ("Just Cause", "Restore Hope", "Iraqi Freedom", "Infinite Justice"), it is war. It is war to its participants. It is war to its victims. As honest Americans we should call it war.
