It seems weird that we seem to be able to respectfully raise all manner of contention with regard to the deaths of hundreds of Iraqi, British and American people within a wider debate that holds that such a conflict ranges from Bush's quasi Christian campaign to seek divine retribution for 9/11 to a genuine attempt to bring down a brutal and repressive dictatorship in Iraq, but still, apparently, cannot discuss our experiences at the alma mater without launching into personal attacks. Why does an event so devastating as this war warrant so little real debate when we can lapse into personal threats at the mere mention of life at SA being anything less than a summer at Brideshead? Where are you Kipper?
