We all remember WTC and thats why most Australians had no problems with going into Afghanistan and shooting the crap out of AQ and the Taliban
But the WTC-9/11 crew were Saudis predominantly recruited by Saudis,led by a Saudi, hiding in Afghanistan, protected by the Taliban.
As far as we know he's still there with AQ with something significantly less than.....30,000 (?)Coalition troops hunting for and fighting his
Iraq and Saddam (no matter how big of MFSOB he was) had no links with that operation or deathwish relating to it.
He had no WMDs when we all went into Iraq
His only terrorists were not your terrorists and if they stepped wrong they would have been nobodies terrorists.
And it doesnt matter how many million times that the PR people repeat the message, there are not enough times you can repeat that will convince Saddam
and Iraq were in on the 9/11 attack.
Despite beleiving this, other than the 9/11 connection, before the war I still beleived in going into Iraq
Given the open arms no worries welcome we received (not) in Iraq when the National Army collapsed, and the fact that we opened the bloody door for
these AQ type groups to flourish and come out the wood work,in hindsight it would have been better to leave the SOB Saddam in power, given them the
economic and humanitarian aid, and created the conditions for the Iraqi people to realise they were onto a good thing instead of bombing the bejesus
out of them.
Given the situation created in Iraq and the failure to have a proper contingency plan and force in place for the aftermath, I am forced to continue to
support the war.
Australia, myself included, will continue to support the US Grady, don't worry about that, because although we put petrol on the fire by mistake,
you don't walk away and let the house burn down.
But will you stop pushing the party line Iraq is all for the victims of 9/11 because even a lot of the supporters of the war stopped beleiving that a
hell of a long time ago!
