by brutal force? im not sure what you mean, this is war. of course people will die, if these insurgents would stop hiding amongst their own people,
then civilians would stop getting shot. it is not the US who is causing it when you look at it with any kind of thought.
we did not decide for them, there are hundreds if not thousands of accounts of Iraqis showing the gratitude that America came in a helped them out
when nobody else would.
im not saying that our war is 100% justified, and im not saying i support it 100%, but you see, there is a silver lining to every cloud. a lot of
people on ATS are ignorant to that because it's mostly nay sayers and doom and gloom type people, so if they can label something as bad... they will
they plain and simple fact is that when saddam was in control, more people were dying then there are now. more people were at risk, more people were
in direct danger (not us IMO, but the countries neighbors.)
it is a step that must be taken to ensure that something like 9/11 will never happen again (here comes to 9/11 truthers, and people who think that our
war over there has done nothing to stop terrorist attacks) i mean why would they bother coming over here to kill us, if they can try to do it in their
and when you look at the death tolls vs. the amount of time we have been there, i would say this has really moved pretty effeciently, in terms of
overall american deaths due to enemy combatant attacks.
you don't have to see it my war, but at least try to look at things with an open mind. instead of instantly assuming bush wants to be an evil facist
dictator and to take over the world and to get rich off making money for an oil company.
