Reading all the responses from democrats, liberals and greens in this and other posts makes me realize why they are against Bush and the war on
terror, nowadays in Iraq. They are clueless as to what has been happening in Iraq, how Saddam went to power and how the whole international
community, up to the point when Bush said we were going to Iraq, said that "Saddam does have wmd" and wanted to do something about it, but when the
time came to do something they decided to bash the coalition .
I am unable to fanthom how with their misinformed minds they still find ways to bash the administration and twist everything that Bush has said.
We have to be very patient with these people, since they are ignorant. Well, some are not well informed while others just keep bashing the government
no matter what evidence is found and no matter how many ex-agents from different countries testify that Saddam did have WMD.
My guess is that they have no idea that if France, Germany, Russia and China among others sided with us against Saddam from the beginning they "would
have been fighting a regime that was giving them moneyand the many interests they had with Saddam."
Reddragon, my guess is that you are too young to understand politics and how "dictatorships" work. Saddam was never alone, he had and there are
still loyalists to his cause, just like Fidel Castro has, he was not the only one against millions of people.
Dictators work by sending messages to the masses that any insurgency will be met by "death," Saddam, Fidel and every other dictator that still live
today and have lived in the past have used this same tactic. Anyone that says the first words about ousting dictators is either assassinated or is
never heard from again by families and friends.
Saddam not only killed hundreds of thousands of his own people but he has invaded other countries in the past and he had been adquiring wmd after the
gulf war, everyone in the international community agreed with this. But of course, when many of these countries saw that the coalition would
overthrow Saddam from power and their interests (read money) would be affected for the worse with Saddam not in power in Iraq anymore they decided to
bash the coalition.
Pretty much France, Russia, China and Germany were just trying to look good when they agreed, before the war, that Iraq had WDM, but when it was time
to do something they showed their true intentions, they were just blabbering their mouths to look good to the international community.
