I believe that everyday the US is in Iraq, they are digging themselves deeper!! How do they even pull out at this point? They are so deep. It was a
massive mistake to have gone in there to begin with, especially without UN support and a proper exit strategy.
They want to fight terrorism........ok, fair enough, but in the process, they are CREATING so many more terrorists. It's not like your born to be
someone who gets involved in terrorism. You just can't expect to wipe them out and be safe because of it!!! What if Toronto, New York, or Los Vegas
had soldiers standing in their streets with guns, imposing new values, a new government, and a new way of life, that is so different from the life
they have experienced for thousands of years. Do you not think that the average joe's in our cities would rebel!!! Yes, the US are trying to make
positive changes, but what gives them the right, and the negative repercussions coming from the changes are so very high, yet most westerners don't
feel them.........yet!!! Do you not think that American individuals in a similar situation would sit back and decide upon the best place to blow
themselves up for the cause and pride of their country. Do you think our average joe's who lost their family in a "carefully placed bomb" wouldn't
think up a way of getting on the oppositions airline to seek revenge, because the first one worked so well.
A lot of us view the insurgents as nothing but savages and terrorists..... although most of them are just normal people, with normal lives….well at
least normal before the invasion. Perhaps they are just fighting for their own cause, for their own country, simply because the US feels they have the
right to bully and change things. Put yourself into the shoes of an Iraqi people. So many innocent lives in Iraq are lost everyday, and yes, most are
from their own suicide bombers, but how many cars blew up before the Americans invaded?? And I’m sure for every soldier who is killed out there,
I’m pretty confident there was an innocent civilian in Iraq that fell victim to a US bullet or explosion! And the hundreds of innocent people being
held in prisons over there for months and months, without any real proof of terrorist involvement. God knows how much the media is censored, making
your average people oblivious to what is really going on over there! The US government is not even allowing the media to show the coffins of dead
soldiers coming home, which I think is wrong!!!! And why…. because they a scared it will fuel more protest? Perhaps showing the public would spark
more respect, support, and honour for the soldiers who unselfishly gave their lives.
How many billions of dollars has been spend on an impossible war??? Maybe those billions could have been put into homes for the homeless, jobs, for
the unemployed, healthcare and research for people who are sick and dieing, cleaner energy research and products for the planet that is suffering. All
that wasted money for an unbeatable enemy! There will always be effective opposition toward anything directly or indirectly associated with US,
whether it is bombings at democratic polling stations for years to come, or a McDonalds bombing because it's American. I can't see things getting
better over there until they get back to "their norm." And terrorism is inevitable, as long as there is a reason to hate someone. The US is feeding
them reasons everyday!!
People will never learn from past mistakes, it's very very sad these conflicts are still part of life. Hopefully the plans to properly train their
people to clean up the mess the US made, and to sustain a working democratic government works out!!! I'm scared to see what the world is going to be
like for our children’s children!!!! What do you think people? This is simply how i feel. Cut my views up if you'd like, I’d enjoy reading
Taker easy people,
