Stupid bumper sticker

I live in the heart of DFL and Green Party territory; Uptown Minneapolis. So I see a lot of leftie bumper stickers on cars. But I never noticed this one before until this week;

IF WE KILL INNOCENT LIVES, THEN WE ARE THE ENEMY.

It's obvious to me that the target of this bumper sticker is the U.S. mission in Iraq. And it's faulty thinking, of course. This is really a pacifist's point of view. No war was ever fought that resulted in no loss of innocent life. So the person who proudly displays this bumper sticker would never have been born in the United States if the Revolutionary War were never fought. Was George Washington the enemy?

Maybe we should look at it like this; Maybe the people who go around with bumper stickers like that are the enemy. Maybe a bumper sticker should be printed that says;

IF WE DISPLAY MINDLESS BUMPER STICKERS, THEN WE ARE THE ENEMY.

Probably not. Who's going to place a bumper sticker on their car that will encourage folks to key their paint job?
