To always err on the side of life

One year after the death of Terri Schiavo, and one day after the release of Jill Carroll, it is perhaps worth remembering the shooting of journalist Giuliana Sgrena, and the death of Italian secret agent Nicola Calipari in March of 2005, by U.S. troops. Imagine the reaction if Carroll had been shot by heroic U.S. forces after her release. How would this fit with the statement by George W. Bush that we should try “to always err on the side of life?”

200,000 dead from Bush’s war of unprovoked aggression in Iraq, a top (war crime) ally slaughtered, and he recommends trying “to always err on the side of life.”

Always err on the side of life: I guess that was what Cheney was doing when he blasted his hunting buddy in the face with his Italian shotgun.
