Pro to the question "Should the US Have Attacked Iraq?"
"In the midst of the very intense sentiments against the war, I am going to stand here in front of you and tell you that I am for the removal of Saddam Hussein from power and if it has to be by force, so be it, it would have to be by force...
It's not that I take war lightly...[a]nd indeed I would go as far as saying that war is an evil. But sometimes, unfortunately, war is a necessary evil. And in this particular case, I think it is. That's why I am actually a supporter of forcing Saddam Hussein out of power."
