It Has Begun

As I was driving home from work today listening to the traffic station, a CBS news special report broke in. While speaking with a correspondant in Baghdad, several large explosions were heard. It seems that US led forces, acting on intel obtained by the CIA earlier today, launched several cruise missles at a “target of opportunity” within the city.

I just finished listening to the President’s address, and I’m turning off the television now. I’m not terribly interested in listening to reporters, news anchors, and special correspondants speculate about what is going on, what or who was just hit, and when a full scale attack will be launched.

I honestly don’t know whether or not this war is needed. I do wish that it had not come to this. I am saddend when I think about the loss of life that is about to occur (or already has occured) on both sides of this conflict.
