Janet Reno, opposes the war with Iraq, saying ”We will not solve the world’s problems by might.” You’d think she’d see the value of disarmament more than anyone on this planet. This is the woman who ordered the seige on the Waco compound of David Koresh, on the grounds that he had some unregistered guns inside.

Maybe if Saddam Hussein were a fundamentalist Christian, she’d support his removal.
