    I never supported the reasons that they gave in support the war, the "weapons of mass destruction" etc. However, watching the news about how the iraqis were victimised etc by sadam, I support it under the principle of human rights

    however, i totally objected to the anti-war protests which took place once we'd sent people out there. the fact is, you protest before people get sent off to war, and perhaps after they get back, but not while they're out there risking their lives. the lat thing they need out there is to hear on the radio about marches up the mall, the burning of flags and such. a great morale booster that!

    one thing though, y is it only the yanks who seem to suffer casualties due to ambushes, and the only ones to injure the iraqi people? from what i understand the brits out there face just as many anti-west attacks, but they manage to escape fairly unscathed. most infact seem to be hit by the US people! its clear who has the better forces!!

    yea....im not sure what i feel, its my instinct to trust people, even george bush.......but i dont kno inside i just cringe every time i hear about a new casualty

    even tho i kno that they (the iraqi people) are better off without sadam after all the fighting is done

    i agree even tho its hard to do it the usa could well have planned something instead of destroying the whole country!
    it just makes us think.........what were their true intentions? removing saddam...i think not.....WMD? where are they then??????
    what does it leave us with?

    Oil
    Control of Middle East
    Diversion from the domestic affairs of USA.....hmmmm isnt it funny Mr G.W Bush has an election coming up??????

    yes but its not against the USAs law......we dont HAVE to do what the UN tells us, most the time we do, but its not like the UN RULES us

    as long as our congress says we can go to war; we can go to war THATS THE LAW

    ok calm down! im not attacking you! im just saying its a bit stupid to say that you cant kill one man despite the atrocities and crimes he has committed but its ok to pre-empitively stike a whole country and destroy it!

    they werent blowing up your bases before the war! if you werent there in the first place no one would be blowing you up!

    Iraq had WMD? so does north korea why not bomb them? perhaps Bush is scared of starting a NUCLEAR WAR.

    Iraq had a criminal leader? Many other countries do too....so you gonna bomb them all to "liberate" the people.....ie take their oil, give out contracts to ur buddies who backed you up!

    how pathetic! dont get me wrong i have nothing against americans...but george bush is just a complete idiot....and his government must think we're stupid!

    he didnt brutally murder people in afghanistan or iraq, we dont want to kill any civilians

    and bush isnt punishing any other country for not backing him....he just feels (and so do i) that people who didnt help to take saddam out shouldnt be making ANy kind of money off this.....

    dont get me wrong im a liberal, but im also american and i have to stand up for my country
