Flycatch, right on for saying it like it is. Take the fight to the enemy. Is Al Qaeda attacking us on our soil? No they are attacking our troops that
are prepared for war. Isn’t that better than blowing up American citizens on buses on their way to work? The people of Iraq wanted to be free and they
are. They will eventually moderate the Middle East making the atmosphere un-hospitable for the extremist Muslims. The extremist Muslims started this
conflict a long time ago. Do you remember the marines in Beirut, the Iran hostages, the attack by the Iranians on one of our warships, the world trade
tower attack in 93, the attack on 2 of our over seas embassies, the USS Cole, there is even evidence that that Iraqis were involved in the Oklahoma
bombing and then of course 9-11.
Sublime4372 you wrote “but screw sendind our people over there to die, ESPICALLY WHEN IT IS PREDICATED ON LIES AND GREED. heres an idea. lets wait,
untill they ATTACK US!!”
First, how was attacking Iraq greedy?
Do you really want to let them attack first? They already attacked us first many years ago. What do you say we let them attack you first on us soil
The truth is we need to protect ourselves and it is better to do it over there than here. That is unless you like war on your doorstep. George Bush
has the balls to make the tough decisions that our politicians have skirted in the past, for that I have great respect for him.
As far as Saddams weapons goes I listened to an interview with a contractor for one of the companies providing security in Iraq. His job was to guard
the people blowing up Saddams weapons. He said that it will take at least two years to blow it all up. He further stated that they are blowing stuff
up that they do not even know what it is because there is so much of it that they just blow it up instead of looking it all over to see what he has.
He said they are most likely blowing up WMD on a daily basis.
