We were not terrorizing them. Irrespective of our ultimate reasons for being there, we were fighting violent extremist insurgents (and it is well-documented that they were extremists) who rose up to fill the void left by Saddam Hussein, a man who tortured and killed thousands of his own citizens, including gassing and killing thousands of Kurds in northern Iraq during the mid-1980s. Was that our problem? No. Should we have been there? No. Regardless of that, though, once we were there, was it our moral responsibility to set things right? Of course it was. Would it have been correct to simply get the hell out of dodge and leave the citizens of Iraq to their fate with a giant power vacuum hovering over them? No, it would not have been.

This is all very separate from the discussion about the game, and I think we’re going nowhere fast, so I’m out. Thanks for your indulgence, and no hard feelings. We simply disagree, so let’s move on.
