as deepwaters has already mentioned, korea and china seem to me to be far more powerful that iraq. North korea especially is very big and powerful. It
is the most dominant and major communist society too, alienating it from the rest of the world.
So why aren't Blair and Bush bothered about them? Because they're big. iraq is small, their army is no threat so the UK and the USA can easily
destroy it, but korea and china are more of a challenge.....
Something to think about?
Also, I think Korea seem to think america is the same america they fought before at pearl harbour. Not so.
Another little issue thats come to mind is that the whole iraq situation could be read in a very different way. Saddam Hussein appealed to us, asking
if we would be against him killing the al quaida (not sure how to spell, sorry!). We did not say yes, or no but simply turned a blind eye. That could
have been misinterpreted by him to mean that we didn't mind....
And Im sure some poeople remember when the kurds asked the west for support when attacking iraq....
Again, our word was mistook, as we didn't give them physical support and they were left to fight a loosing battle. When our help was pleaded for,
huge sacks of food were plummetted from the sky, killing some troops at the front........
Why didn't we help them?
Ooh, i seem to have got carried away.....some of my facts may be a little muddled, sorry.
