You should protest against the US/Britain alliance, really.
Well, that was a long, long time ago. I think historically we (Americans) tend to think of our previous conflicts with Britain more along the lines of a teenage kid trying to get freedom from its parents.
So is the US. Do you SERIOUSLY think the US is a saint in here and wants to attack Iraq to get rid of a dictator and his weapon of mass destruction for the greater good of Humanity?
Of course not, and I did not say so or allude to that. In fact, I said I hate Bush. And what you say is exactly correct, EVERYONE has their own agenda. I make my decisions based on my own discoveries and common sense after trying to weed out the lies from the truth. No one is telling the whole truth in this situation...NO ONE. I do believe that Saddaam is a ruthless dictator that tortures his own people, that invades other countries and tortures THEIR people (ask the Kuwaitis), and that creates ecological disasters. I do believe the world is far better off without him, and I KNOW the US is better off without him.
Saddaam is evil, period. Is anyone willing to debate that one fact? So France and Russia are willing to support this evil for their money and oil...isnt that exactly what everyone accuses the US of doing? Only this time the US agenda just happens to be on the side of good, whether by accident or design is not important to me now.
Saddaam must go. I am shocked at the ignorance of Europe in this case, they usually seem pretty on the ball and well informed but here they are not. Again, nothing has happened for 12 years and 17 resolutions until we spend our money, MY money, and put our troops on their borders. France would have us keep them there indefinately at our expense just to make this complete asshole stop playing very serious games? Well, I dont want 300,000 of my contrymen living on the borders of Iraq indefinately and I dont thikn many Americans do. I DO want this crap to end though, one way or another. Since the UN has done NOTHING to end this over the past 12 years its time for us to stop sitting here hoping that Saddaam is going to magically wake up and live up to his obligations that put a CEASE FIRE to the Gulf War.
These are obligations that ALL of the UN (including the frogs) agreed to but NO ONE in the UN is willing to enforce.
And these same people will say that Bush and Blair are making the UN irrelevant....the UN has been doing that on their own for quite some time now...
