Subject: The recent focus on base closings
In reply to: Eppy 's message, "OK...I'm Sure It's No Surpise To Many of You..." on 16:40:39 06/22/05 Wed

shows that it's not such a disaster as many think. I've been reading how local govs/businesses have been able to buy the closed out bases and turn them into much more profitable enterprises (malls, industrial complexes, etc) Humans are creative and resourceful--we'll always find a good use for the closed bases. And we'll find good ways to put our men to work.

Preventive warfare? I don't think so. Do we punish criminals for what's in their mind? For what they are thinking about doing? Sounds too much like Minority Report--very scary. Too much opportunity for error--for misjudging what someone plans to do. In 3 Nephi, some of the Nephites wanted to wage preventive war on the Gadiantons but the prophet told them no, that the Lord would not support them in preventive war. The D&C says war is justified only after we have made 3 (or more) attempts at a peaceful resolution. From a practical, scriptural and moral point of veiw I can find no justification for Bush's policy of "pre-emptive war".
