Con to the question "Should the US Have Attacked Iraq?"
"I disagree with the Administration's policies on Iraq, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, North Korea and curtailment of civil liberties in the U.S. itself. I believe the Administration's policies are making the world a more dangerous, not a safer, place. I feel obligated morally and professionally to set out my very deep and firm concerns on these policies and to resign from government service as I cannot defend or implement them.
I strongly disagree with the use of a 'preemptive attack' against Iraq and believe that this preemptive attack policy will be used against us and provide justification for individuals and groups to 'preemptively attack' America and American citizens.
I strongly urge the Department of State to attempt again to stop the policy that is leading us to military action in Iraq without UNSC [United Nations Security Council agreement]."
