You are making it metaphysical. Your left ear is itching but since you are wearing a hat that you don't want to take off, you scratch your right ear instead and feel very satisfied. Saddam didn't do 9/11, so who cares, he's been bad, let's whoop his ass... There. Bad, bad Saddam.

I don't see you invading Sudan where the real genocide has been happening for years. I did see you fighting side by side with islamic terrorists in Kosovo (gee Osama must have been glad). And I don't observe any real logic in your reasoning (not that the President showed any).




"Two wrongs don't make a right, sunshine." So, do we just wait for another lose of 3000 before do any thing? Come on, what are you smoking in that smokers room, da fern?


Saddam could not have inflicted 3000 casualties on the US in any case. I don't know what YOU have been smoking.

I can see AntiPolitrix's point, in that a lot of people died for no reason on 9/11, and its right to prevent it occuring again. No sane person wants to see people suffer.

BUT, waging a broad, wide ranging war on terror doesnt make any friends, and it certainly costs lives, be they American and British or Iraqi and Afghan.

At the end of the day, we are all human. We all feel pain and loss, and the Iraqis are currently going through something quite horrific.

I'm no prophet, but if GWBush is given a vote of confidence from his people he is going to feel a sense of vindication, and things will probably get worse. The American populous has a responsibility to vote him out of office and send a message that we, the human race, would rather just get along as civilized people, and that war is something to be avoided. We do live in the 21st century after all.

I know people think that there are many people who think that the attacks on 9/11 required an equally strong reaction, but how can people progress when mistakes aren't recognized and learnt from?

Its a cliche, I know, but if your child hits someone, and you hit him back as punishment you are not exactly sending the right message, agreed?

The term 'foreign policy' has taken on a new meaning since the end of the cold war, and I wish that America and indeed Britain would take the fatherly step of actually giving rather than taking. Third world debt anyone?

Somebody needs to give an inch here, and the only people in a position to do that are the British and the US. If it doesnt happen, we are in for the long haul.

I see your point with that example BUT the US was attacked on Sept 11th and something had to be done. The intel we gathered from around the world said Saddam had conections with Al Qaeda and that Saddam was still trying to create WMD. Now, after the US lost 3000 lives we had to do something. The attacks were not in Britian, France or Germany, the US lost 3000 people from acroos the world on its own soil. I would vote Bush out of office if he didn't do any thing but it is just the opposite. Al Qaeda is on the run, the US HAS NOT been attacked again, we are constantly gathering Al Qaeda members up. I just wish Bush would concentrate on protecting the Mexico/US Border. The President of the US has a job to do, which is to protect and serve the American people.

HUh...heres an example for you; if your kid was in school and another kid punched him in the face are you going to tell your son to give him money tomorrow? As for third world dept, the US has its own problems, we need to figure those out first. We need to concentrate on making the US safer for the American people and then, help out the third world countries. It does sound good for everyone to get along but then again thats not reality. Half of the American people don't even get along with the other half so how are we going to unit the world? Never....

O--K

Does Sudan pose a threat to the US? Is Sudan connected with Al Qaeda?

I never said Saddam killed 3000+ Americans, i said the terrorist Saddam was helping killed 3000+ Americans. Al Qaeda killed 3000 Americans and after we went after them in Afghanistan, Al Qaeda Members ran to Iraq to hide. We are way off topic here. What does this have to do with Voting for Kerry because he is not Bush.

I meant it partially to point out that a brutal regime there is committing atrocities that make Iraq pale by comparison, so if any of your reasoning is valid, you should rush to the resque.

Apart from this, the Al Qaeda operation out of Sudan can be easily googled, and you can check here and here

First, I didn't see Saddam "helping" anybody. Second, Al Qaeda went to North Africa (it would be strange to hide in a place soon to be raided by the US).

a) the Iraq issue is a prominent feature of that campaign
b) Bush is a prominent failure in Iraq, therefore replacing him with somebody who has not screwed up so badly gives us a statistical chance to better the situation

A brief insight into Bush's care for people.

www.msnbc.msn.com...

Yes this happend back in College. What he did is not as disturbing as the responce Bush gave to the Yale college reporters after Branding somone during a frat hazing. I know people will say that he was young and grown up now. Unfortunalty by the time you are in College you rnature is pretty much set.. you can change your demenor.. but your nature is pretty solidly set.

No, I do not think that Bush cares at all for anyone but himself, that includes those suffering in other nations or anyone here in the USA. Ohh he cares about how they view him, and how it will affect his standing and his bank account. But as for actualy caring about the masses, the people, or the dead that come back from the war.. .sorry but no.

Yes I do think that going into Afganistan was the right thing to do and I gave full support to hunting them down. However, we have been attacked to that scale before, WWII and we retaliated against Japan and that was also neccessary. Yes, I did write in aobut giving Bush a bit of flack about his non reaction in the school but I also gave a fll explination of the problems I had and that I agreed with some of the other actiaons as well.

However, the way he went about the invasion of Iraq was so unbelivabley irrisopncible it, in itself, is close to criminal. Breaking the Geniva convention laws, pissing off the UN (and reguardless of wht you think about them they are neccessary and the best way to go.) And then.. this is the kicker for me that really just blows my mind... We have all this going on.. and Bush takes an unpresidented ammount of vacation. I know people need a day off now and then but when you are the leader of a county in a war against an undefined foe, finances are going to hell, terrorists attacking, the answer is not to go golfing every weekend. He has taken more vacation in 4 years than presidents who have served 2 terms. I'm sorry but WTF!!!

Lets talk about sadistic behavior, Kerry's admits to war crimes in his speech of 1971, now who is sadistic? He commits war crimes and you want to talk about Bush's fratnizing. This link below brings up the dirt on Kerry.

It shows an individual who was able to look at what he did with a great deal of regret and resolution to not let it happen again. Something that Bush isn't capable of. Remember, when asked if he made any mistakes, Dubya was at loss (well he always is), and said he couldn't think of any.

You posted this before. I read through this, and can only conclude there is too much conjecture and lack of solid data.

"Hijazi continues to deny that he met with bin Laden on December 21, 1998, to offer the al Qaeda leader safe haven in Iraq. U.S. officials don't believe his denial."

Hahaha of course they don't!

And then...
"We could find no provable connection between Saddam and al-Qaida," a senior U.S. official acknowledged.


And then of course there are things like confusing names

It's SPECULATION and not much else...

This is from the previous link. Note that Iraqi defectors
also manufactured some WMD disinformation (I suppose
to get paid, and possibly get a green card, hehe).

Antipolitrix, you have few sources and they appear to contradict
much of what's available. Time to admit the whole Iraq project
was manufactured.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Iraqi defectors alleged that Saddam's regime was helping to train Iraqi and non-Iraqi Arab terrorists at a site called Salman Pak, south of Baghdad. The allegation made it into a September 2002 white paper that the White House issued.

The U.S. military has found no evidence of such a facility.
The allegation that Sept. 11 hijacker Mohamed Atta met in Prague, Czech Republic, with an Iraqi intelligence officer now is contradicted by FBI evidence that Atta was taking flight training in Florida at the time. The Iraqi, Ahmed Khalil Ibrahim Samir al Ani, is now in U.S. custody and has told interrogators he never met Atta.

CIA Director George Tenet told the Senate Intelligence Committee last month that there's no evidence to support the allegation.


Bush, Cheney and Secretary of State Colin Powell made much of occasional contacts between Saddam's regime and al-Qaida, dating to the early 1990s when bin Laden was based in the Sudan. But intelligence indicates that nothing ever came of the contacts.

" Were there meetings? Yes, of course there were meetings. But what resulted? Nothing," said one senior U.S. official.

Goes both ways Aelita, your argument and SpittinCobra's post is speculation. And what isn't speculation was caused by the worst terror attack on the US ever.

No it doesn't go both ways. Read my previous post. There are direct references to what Tenet and others said.

Spitting Cobra presented naked facts as well. That the US's standing in the world is at all times low is a fact. That demonstrations against the Bush's policies were simply unprecedented is a fact. That the number of bankruptcies in the US is at all times high is documented. Spitting Cobra presented data collected from overwhelming number of sources.

That the budget deficit is staggering and the national debt defied any description is also truth which you conveninetly ignore. My life will be screwed up because of this policies, and that of my children.



And what isn't speculation was caused by the worst terror attack on the US ever.


Of course, you have to drag 9/11 into this. It may sound like a magic mantra to you, but it doesn't make true what you you are saying.

Bush has got to go.

You say "no Connection" but obviously there was.

Administration officials reported that Farouk Hijazi, a top Iraqi intelligence officer, had met with bin Laden in Kandahar, Afghanistan, in 1998 and offered him safe haven in Iraq.

They left out the rest of the story, however. Bin Laden said he'd consider the offer, U.S. intelligence officials said. But according to a report later made available to the CIA, the al-Qaida leader told an aide afterward that he had no intention of accepting Saddam's offer because "if we go there, it would be his agenda, not ours."

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"the al-Qaida leader told an aide afterward that he had no intention of accepting Saddam's offer because "if we go there, it would be his agenda, not ours."

Yea...lets take the word of a Al Qaeda aide.

Thanks for proving my point and disproving you previous statement. They didn't have any intention to go to Iraq, therefore they didn't go and there was no cooperation. That's exactly what reasonable people have been saying for a long time and you just buttressed this argument.

There WERE meetings, you said yourself. Thats one senior official's comments and here is another senior official's comments on the Iraq-Al Qaida Link...who should we believe?
www.worldnetdaily.com...

The truth is, i don't know Bush and i don't know Saddam, all i have to go by is our shady media here in the states. But i will take the word of G.W. Bush over Saddams any day.
