Ultimately my point is that while our nations war, I have no inherent animosity to the Iraqi people at large. I hope they hold no inherent animosity toward myself.
The overwhelming majority of civilians of Iraq aren't pulling the oil out of the ground, nor are they threatening the supply of said oil to us or anyone else. They in no way negatively impact my life, nor the lives of the average American. I never supported the war, nor did I vote to elect those who did.
It sounds as if you're agreeing with my sentiments, but trying desperately to find something in what I'm saying to argue with.
