On the other points, though you speak with passion, you weave statements, misinformation and conspiracy theories into a broad banner that proclaims that, while you care, you don't care enough to get the facts straight.

The justification for the war has never changed. Some aspects may be emphasized more than others. Let me tell you what that is, "Disarmament of Iraq, through regime change", with the inevitable result of liberation of the Iraqi people.
Finally, don't ascribe your euro-derived cynicism to us. We really believe the world can be a better place and we're one of the few who are willing to risk our lives to do something about it.
Go read it all - it is a masterful dressing down of peacenick pablum
