"The Right of Self Defense." Hard to oppose it. It is inherent. The problem is some folks consider the right to commit crimes against others as 'self-defense." Hitler told the German people that Germany had to defend itself against an attack by Poland. George Bush told the American people if we didn't invade Iraq, Iraq would destroy us with atomic bombs, nerve gas and biological weapons. Neither assertion was true. But both Hitler and Bush claimed "self defense" as justification for naked aggression. "Self defense" is, sometimes, a matter of mass deception.
