"If there was no oil reserve in Iraq, the United States would never go there...even if the iraqi people were tortured each days!
Come on...you can go to war but at least, be honest and tell the world (and your own people) the real reason of it. "
Of COURSE the oil is beneficiary, but we need a good reason that most other countries will buy. And we found one. The educated people know the real reason. That's good enough. That's WAR. It's what made this country.
"So let me get this straight. We are bombing Iraq with WOMD because he won't get rid of his WOMD. We are disobeying the UN to force Iraq to obey the UN. Should Russia, China, France and Germany start bombing us for using WOMD and not complying with the UN? If not, why not?"
I wouldn't say we are using WOMD to attack Iraq- we are just using hundreds small missiles (tomahawks, I think). The reason that other U.N. members should not attack us for having WOMD is that we didn't sign a big fat 'cease-fire' that says we won't have any. Iraq did.
" If this war is all about Iraq having WOMD why aren't we bombing the crap out of North Korea? They threatened us with nuclear war today which is a whole lot more than Iraq ever did to us."
I sincerely doubt North Korea will EVER be touched without resorting to a World War III. The reason I say that is North Korea is very close to China, and China is not to be touched.
">We WILL leave the Iraqi people better then what they were before we came. And frankly, that is all that matters to me.
Yeah, I'm sure these 2 are much better off http://sf.indymedia.org/news/2003/03/1586174.php
It's horrible that civillians had to die, but how many thousands of those people has Saddam already killed? Are you one of those kinds of people who believes that taking babies from the womb is okay, but killing animals for feeding purposes is wrong?
I am the uber troll.
