Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Personally I was virulently opposed to GWB's invasion of Iraq, and in a very small minority in the forum I was on at the time (predominately Americans, broad political spectrum).

I was also opposed to the preceding invasion of Afghanistan, and in that instance I believe I was absolutely alone. Being anti-war in Russia must be really tough; in wartime, all right-(un)thinking citizens align themselves automatically behind their leaders, then find the necessary justifications, mostly delusional but in good faith.

It is rightly acknowledged that people of faith have no monopoly of virtue - Queen Elizabeth II
