    not to sound ignorant or inhumane, but when the twin towers were hit we should have turned that whole area into a glass mine.

    IE A-bomb dat biotch.

    or we could.. ya know.. um... stop killing people. it seems like a reasonable enough idea.. maybe i'm just nuts.

    and by we, i mean humans.. not just the U.S., but they are included.

    *shrugs*
    If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrariwise, what it is, it wouldn't be, and what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?

    Errr... I'm not saying I agree with all of Bush's policies on the Middle East and his "Axis of Evil", but just waiting around and doing nothing just invites another Sept 11th. In this day and age one can't wait for someone else to attack first anymore, since that first attack can be catastrophic.

    I'm not saying we shouldn't defend ourselves, we should try to avoid the problems altogether. We (Americans) basically cram our society down the throats of other nations. That is not right.

    I don't see any real tactical importance of declaring a war with Iraq. I consider war a very very very serious thing, and behind all of the Political reasons the war on Iraq just seems to show the world who is boss. If, however, Saddam Hussein attacks us, I'm all in favor of taking all of his power away.
    EDIT:
    'Attack or be attacked'
    Explain the difference...there is no 'attempted murder' verdict on the international scale...

    I basically just mean waiting for any other country to attack us on a large scale before we go out and wage war. We already went into Afganistan after Sept 11th, so why are we now going into Iraq?

    >>If, however, Saddam Hussein attacks us, I'm all in favor of turning his country into a parking lot.<<

    See I still think this attitude is wrong. I mean, the civillian population of Iraq are just like us, they go about their daily lives quite peacefully just hoping they can earn enough of a wage to feed their families. They probably don't like half the things that Saddam does in the same way that we don't like half the things that our leaders do. But the difference is that, whereas we can vote our leaders out, they can't. They have no choice and no freedom to express any disapproval. When you speak of using nukes you are simply speaking of mass murder of civillian population. It makes us no better than the barbarians who carried out the 9/11 atrocities. With all the blood that was spilled last century in various wars, shouldn't we, as the wealthy, civilised western society look to set an example to everyone by finding another way?

    Obviously I didn't mean kill all of them. In fact i will edit that post to say 'take saddam's power away' instead. I just wanted to point out the fact that I am definitely pro action, but I don't think we should initiate a conflict if there is not clear and present danger, and by all accounts Iraq poses no more clear and present danger than all of the other countries with access to weapons of mass destruction.

    Ok that's a little clearer. Turning a country into a parking lot implies, in my view, using nukes.

    If Iraq want and concern about living peaceful together with other countries in this World, then this country must be willing by itseft to destroy its mass destruction weapons volunteerly without the necessary of UN's pressure. If this country try to lie and fool the world in order to play the political game, then this country must face severe consequences of mass of destruction on its own people. I dont think the whole world united together, not only USA, can't beat this unwanting-peace country.
    To me, WAR is always at last resort if there is no solution exist for a problem. Imagine War will cause many innocent people and children will get killed by ammunition just because of
    a leader or government with some barbaric and immoral ideology
    and politic and dont care the lives of its people and human being
    sourround.
    In short, if you want peace, I will bring peace to you.
    if you want WAR, then you go head to prepare a grave
    for your own first.
