I believe that many think the war is justified by false reasons and because they ignore the real source of the problems. You see it's easy to point
the finger to another and focus on one thing only but that way you fail to see the whole picture, you'll fail to understand the problem and come to
Why I say this ? Because it's just wrong to say that we're there to liberate the Iraqi people so they can go to McDonalds. What make the Iraqi
people so special ? What is the difference between what SH did and what for example Israel is doing to the Palestinians ? Why do you feel it's
sometimes right to kill and oppress peoples and sometimes it's not ? Why does it only depends on who is doing it ?
And those things we have to start to realize, a safer world starts with getting rid of double standards. Really.
No matter what you want to come up with, in the end the war is about the oil Iraq is floating on. The oil is the source for all other reaons you'd
like to point out. The oil is so important because it kept SH very powerful, in fact the oil will make any Iraqi leader powerful. So that's why it
has to be in friendly hands. There are many more reasons, but if you break them all down, you end up with Oil. SH was a dictator, so what, plenty of
dictators in the world. So what's the difference ?
I mean face the facts, oil is the most important resource for modern man. And in this time of high tech one must be on top of things to keep things
I say I do understand why SH had to go and why Iraq needs to be in friendly hands, but all I'm saying is that this is NOT the way to do it, this will
likely cause even more troubles in the future. And we've seen how things have changed since major combat were over. Now the real problems are going
to start. It's not easy to make changes if some don't agree with the changes you'd like to make. And if you force that on peoples, you're likely
going to get resistance.
Why do you think Spain is pulling out ? Not because they are cowards, no it's because they have the experience, they know what terrorism is and they
know you can't win by fighting it, even with the best army in the world. They know it's not worth the many deaths and pain that will go on for
years. They know all about it and don't want to go through that again.
Bosnia was a different story though, there was a war going on there. And because Europe was afraid for the war to escalate to the region so they send
peace keeping troops. ANd because the UN troops are not allowed to have bigger military equipment and the tools to fight a war that's why NATO had
to be called in.
Inspectors went to Iraq, didn't find anything. Some said send UN troops and force free elections. SH would risk a war if he didn't agree with that
plan. Bush said no, no, no, no, we're going in, with or without the UN. So that's a total different story compared to Bosnia.
There was no other options, an invasion was the only way.
