    ZIZERO,

    As for Bush's moral justifications for the killing of innocent civilians in Iraq...I'm not sure where you people come up with the 10,000 civilians. I don't think that's an accurate number and I challenge someone to find a credible source that supports those numbers.

    You are not sure? Ok then Lets say There was 1000 innocent people died as a result of this war right? Would that make it any better? ?
    I think he genuinely wanted to help the people of Iraq be getting rid of the most evil man since Hitler and Stalin. It may lead to a lot of people in Europe being angry with him, but sometimes the road to hell is paved with good intentions.

    Awwwwww What a nice man, So He just spent all of that Money just to Get rid of the most evil man??
    You should really think before you say something like this.


    ZIZERO, you asked me if I happen to be involved in any way with the Bush campaign. I probably seem like I am because I know so much about American politics. I only seem like I know a lot about US politics because I live in here and am naturally going to be more in tune with what is going on here than someone across the pond.

    Yes and your opinions are also very biased.

    Bush’s reason for attacking Iraq was because of WMD… And HE WAS WRONG. He doesn’t admit it and You obviously don’t like to talk about it… Instead you are BOTH trying to be clever and say “Oh yes we got rid of the bad GUY”

    America Is a wonderful country with some wonderful people indeed “The United States has a long record of leading the world toward advances in science and medicine that improve human life and I think this decision is not going change that.”
    Yes you are right but USA has also killed many innocent people around the world for its own benefit. So you can’t really come here and say that you know a lot about American politics and bush is a nice guy who likes to see things in black and white!!!!!!
    Please be fair!

    Come on, even Vienna accetps the 10,000 figure.
    http://www.iraqbodycount.net/

    ... and he was willing to accept the death of innocents for that end. Fair enough, but inconsistant with his policy of banning federal funding for stem-cell research.

    This is not the point. I am discussing the fact that he banned federal funding for stem-cell research.
    I asked for a CREDIBLE source, not some clown that decided to put up a website and make up some numbers. By credible, I mean a respected source. Even the left-leaning CNN or BBC is fine.

    Bush didn't ban the federal funding of stem-cell research. Bush decided to not allow federally funded destruction of embryos to produce stem cells, but instead to allot federal funds for research carried out on the already existing stem cell lines obtained from embryos who had previously been destroyed by the private research sector.

    I'm not convinced that there are no WMDs. This is a country the size of California and all of these weapons could be hidden in an area as small as a garage.

    Mr. You ve said that Ur "not convinced" to nearly everything that people said here. You also avoided replying to some of the points i mentioned above.
    Its no good u keep on saying ur "not convinced"....No one can convince u can they? and you know why ? because you don't want to be convinced. You want to think that Bush was right and your Politicians are honest goody goods who never lie, kill innocent people and go and invade other countries for their own benefits...whether its oil or the construction contracts or boosting their economy by increasing domestic spending...
    Made in USA , Like your president only want to talk about the good things that you have done...and you want to avoid the rest.

    bombs were dropped on specific targets throughout main Saddam strongholds, bearing in mind the relative size of both the country and a weapons cache, the chances are remote.

    it is true, in some areas of politics ur views are very biased and you do not consider both sides.

    are you not proud of ur culture/religion/background?

    perhaps youd be kind enough to point them out to me.
