I do not contest the reasons we went to war with Iraq. Though, in my personal opinion, which means very little on this message board full of Bush
haters, Iraq will be 100x better off now then it was before the war.
Granted thousands of civilians have died, theres infrastructure problems, and the new govt of Iraq is quite humourous, I honestly think its for the
People keep getting caught up on the small picture. Iraq.
Just like a past poster stated, Bin Laden is drooling over the fact of our soldiers on the ground, versus the mass airstrikes we laid down in Afghan
that force him and his cronies to flee. What better way to kill terrorists that hide within societies, then to get them to come out and try to attack
you, then blow their sorry asses up? Anyone have the link to the militant that was about to fire the RPG at a tank and got his head split open by a
sniper? You know damn well that same militant was chilling in some mud hut pretending to be a civilian before those tanks came passing by. The biggest
mistake Bin Laden has made, was over estimating the Coalition force. And its costing him dearly.
Here's an old link:
The US administrator for Iraq, Paul Bremer, said on Sunday that hundreds of "international terrorists" have entered the country and that Iraq
was now a frontline in the US war on terrorism.
The top civilian administrator repeated calls for Syria and other neighbours of Iraq to clamp down on border infiltrations but said there was no
strong indication yet who was responsible for last week's attack on the UN offices in Baghdad.
Like I said, the reasons for invading Iraq were weak. But if G.W. knew or beleived this effect would have happened, then I'm all for it and I give it
Here's some numbers...
There have been 980 coalition deaths, 862 Americans, 60 Britons, six Bulgarians, one Dane, one Dutch, one Estonian, one Hungarian, 18
Italians, one Latvian, six Poles, one Salvadoran, three Slovaks, 11 Spaniards, two Thai and six Ukrainians, in the war in Iraq as of July 2, 2004
Now, anyone care to find a death toll of the Terrorist/Militants.. Cuz our 'unbiased' media cares not to talk about it too often.
