Satan conferences with U.S. religious leaders

From the NYTimes:
After two days of prickly confrontations with critics at Columbia University and the United Nations, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran held a friendly, even warm, exchange yesterday with Christian leaders from the United States and Canada convinced that dialogue is the only way to prevent war.
I think this is how people and nations go about living together on the same planet without bombing and killing one another.

Doesn't always work, obviously. Sometimes, bombing and killing is the only solution. And certainly we should never put ourselves in the position of being unable or unwilling to bomb and kill when necessary. But attacking other countries, and slaughtering their people, when they haven't attacked us, are not threatening us, and, in fact, are incapable of attacking us, is: (a) a bad idea, and (b) wrong.
