    What activity or action is acceptable (in YOUR opinion) if you are morally and/or intelectually against the current strategy of Pre-Emptive Warfare. How much or how little is acceptable to you before you become a "traitor"?

    Please, be detailed in your answer. I am very interested to know (from Lefties AND righties) how much or little you feel is acceptable in fighting against such U.S. actions.

    Does the country in question have a rich supply of oil?

    The richest vein of oil ever found was discovered in Kosovo. That's why
    we bombed Serbia for it

    Not very often, I mainly use the Subway. My car gets like 36mpg and still only costs like $20 to fill up.

    But wtf does that have to do with anything? I would gladly pay more for my gas to avoid taking over a country for their oil supply to line the pockets of big oil companies.

    we didn't lose a single american serviceman in Kosovo

    1000 died and 5000 more wounded for the oil in Iraq

    there is no comparison

    i favor intelligence and infiltration over warfare. you can achieve the same end w/o losing as many lives and losing in teh world court of public opinion. don't forget we almost had this iraq war won following the gulf war before bush sr. 's admin backed out and left the people they backed hanging out to dry. that's the only way to go about this (without, of course, the nasty little detail at the end).
