Is Blair too close to Bush??Watch
it is known that iraq was the haven for some al kaida operatives. However, the most important part of war was liberation. Fair enough emotive images may have been selected, but there is no denying the horrific torture chambres, and the countless victims of 'sadaam' cannot all be part of the supposed American pro war propoganda. This means that Sadaam was evil, which i dont think anyone can dispute, and that the war was just.
The British Government wouldn't help them out though....
1) thousands of 'black' votes in florida were discarded
2) convicted felons in Florida werent allowed to vote (which is against law) but they werent allowed into the voting booths
3) Jebb Bush (********s brother) was in charge of affairs in Florida (Surprised?)
4) daddy is great pals with the supreme court judges who overuled the recount
5) Oversea votes (i.e. soldiers in other countries) had votes counted twice (as theyw ere bush supporters)
many other reasons too, if u wana knw more, just ask me.
Some people will always criticize politicians, yet provide no alternative course of action. This is the easy way out. The war in Iraq was a necessary course of action to root out the totalitarianist regime of Saddam Hussein. To suggest that the people of Iraq would prefer the ceaseless brutality of this cruel, oppressive regime, over the few weeks of war that they suffered is illogical and absurd. Anti-American sentiment often distorts people's perception of reality, with the presumption that "evil, capitalist" America is selfish, power hungry, and always wrong. To suggest that
"The only justice for war is self-defence."
is completely foolish and selfish. This implies no moral imperative to help others in dire, inhumane situations. Do you not care for their suffering, or do you merely shy away from a mispercieved notion of a "War" that seems unquestionably wrong, without first analysing the situation with some semblance of intellectual clarity.
The Iraq war was a resounding success. There are still problems in Iraq. It is unrealistic to expect otherwise. However, the short term suffering of the Iraqi people in the quest for their liberation was definitely worth it, as the long term prognosis can only get better.
Second, the war was about the liberation of the Iraqi people. For the past 30 odd years they had been living under a terrible regime of torture and execution. There is no two ways about it, Saddam Huessein was a modern day evil dicatator, and I defy anyone to argue otherwise. The Iraqi people needed to be set free from this system, and this goal has been achieved. Of course, there were civillian casulaties in the war, but show me any war were there isn't? I am not trying to justify the killing of innocent people, in fact quite the opposite is true. What I am getting at is that if Huessein had been left in power for another 10, 15 years only to be succeded by his (more evil) son, how many innocent people woul be killed then? A darn sight more than as a result of the war.
Iraq should be a major oil exporting country. After liberalisation, this extremely valuable asset can be used to develop the country and increase the living standards of it's citizens, rather than line the pockets of the Huessein family (and definitely not those of the coalition of the willing as so many people think it will...)
Those who argue that the intelligence was wrong and that their was no production of WMDs in process... OK, perhaps Saddam didnt have a nuclear, biological or chemical weapon a few months back. But there was evidence to suggest he was developing them - not necessarily building them... yet. What should we have done, allowed him to continue to develop them on paper and then build them for real while we faffed around again like the months wasted before military action was taken, so he has some real bargaining power and ability to destroy us when we finally got round to taking action? Of course not.
You saw the joy on the faces of the Iraqi's as they pulled down the statue of Saddam in Baghdad - surely this in itself shows we did the right thing!
And isnt it funny, the Americans always have someone to blame, if not the Japanes, its the communist, or now 'islamic militants'. Just as the fall of communism came about, the Americans had to find themselves a new common enemy, and a culprit to put the blame on and to give them the right to 'take the gloves off'. And so they found Isla, afraid of its alarming rate of growth around the world, the fastest growing religion had to become the new target for the biggest 'cancer of the world-America. (well the second biggest after Israel and the Zionists).
WHEN YOU MAKE FUN OF SOMEONE'S ENGLISH ON A MESSAGE BOARD, LEARN TO TYPE/WRITE ENGLISH PROPERLY!! My god people like you piss me off, Bloodhound.
I suppose instead of someone who is ACTING stupid (you dont win the American presidency by being stupid, no matter what you like to think), you would prefer someone who is amazingly intelligent and would still wage wars for "no reason" (dont start another discussion on that please!)
