Subject: There are a lot of costs
In reply to: TastingTheBlood 's message, "Fantastic Site!" on 11:29:41 02/25/07 Sun

of war--increased gov size and power is a big one. But another cost is the decline in morals. The American people are willing to pursue a war that most agree is wrong, merely to save face. "We will lose credibility." It takes far more courage and integrity to admit one's mistakes and try to set a new, correct course, than to continue in a direction that is wrong by all accounts.

I think the costliest and saddest cost of war is the dehumanizing affect war has. The Iraqis are not considered (or at least treated) as human and too many soldiers are acting inhumanely. This carries over into society in general and we risk becoming a bloodthirsty people like the Nephites of 4th Nephi.
