Will Suddam bomb Arabs? If he does bomb turkey, it will only help the U.S. on there propaganda war in the middle east.

This leader bombed his own people. Who knows? The U.S. wants to defend Turkey, but you really don't know the true politics which happen behind closed doors.

Yea, but it seems to me, people forget quickly in the middle east. Plus, it's a different time. The key now is Arabs unitieing against the U.S. and the western world. If he was to bomb is own people now, it would go against what Osama and the Arab militants are preaching.

And have you seen the people who formed a human shield around Bagdad. Funny Stuff. What are these people trying to promote, they arn't even Iraqi!!!! I see if they want to protect the people of Bagdad, but I doubt too many civilians will die in Bagdad. America freed Kawait and how many civilians died? Not many. These people should be protesting against Suddam because he is about to kill thousands of his own people to fight a war he can not win.

I know that; the sooner Saddam is out of power, the better off Iraqi people will be. Saddam is a greedy bastard and he would make a better corporate leader, then a country's leader.

What has America done in the past to countries which they have gone to war with (and won)? They rebuild the country. If the United States outed Saddam back in '91, then maybe Iraq would be a peaceful leader in the middle east. Corporate America, bad. What America stands for, good.

all i am saying is that there are more than one cookie to crunch in this issue. america seems to be trying to form world dictatorship more and more every day. hmmm, lets say US Secretary of State = abuses forein members of the security council because they do not want to support them in a war.

 

If AMERICA wants to go to war with Iraq. then fine, they can. But stop dragging other countries in there own personal issues with them.

 

so GWB should jump on his OWN banwagon and go at it alone, and leave other countries out of it. And the WWI/WWII excuse is just pathetic.

 

Hmmmm, lets see. WWI, the USA assisted for personal gain, SUPER HIGH INTEREST RATES ON LOANS TO THE ALLIES.

 

Geeeze, just like the US...... After world war 1, it was US President Wilsons idea to start the league of nations... New President ellected and they didnt join. There is just to much chopping, changing and backflipping in american congress. And NOW the US government is trying to butt into australian politics and lashing out at our opposition party's to the govt. well they can just leave australia alone, and worry bout there own bloody issues and take their stupid american ambassador to australia with them... we dont want him or need him here.

That's mostly true, but you'd have a hard job trying to convince the Iraqi people that they can make it without Saddam. The culture in Iraq is entirely different from yours.

 

And don't forget that if the US hadn't helped put the H-man in power in the first place, none of this would be happening.

 

I'd be interested to know which countries the US has 'rebuilt' too.

Einstein in a letter to a pacifist, 1941

"If all the young people in America were to act as you intend to act, the country would be defenseless and easily delivered into slavery." These are good words for France today.

Also I heard an Iraqi on a TV discussion ask "How do you expect us to be your friends if your going to bomb us?" I wish somebody would have said that when you kick the shit out of a child molester, your pretty certain to get the grattitude of the kids he's molesting. They just don't seem to get it but they will see it soon.

The dead ones won't, or the ones who lose their homes or families or property.

 

I think that might be the issue they have.

 

After all, if you kick a child molester you're pretty certain you're going to hit him.

If you carpet bomb a country you can be sure to pick off the odd bystander.

I hope we aren't stupid enough to just blast away. We will be asking a lot of our special forces to cut away the bad without haring the good.

On another front, if N Korea launches a missle at us, I hope our defense sysem we've been testing out over the Pacific is ready for at least an attempt at intercept. This months Pop. Sci. says we're still a couple years from shooting em down with lasers.

America would be happy to not put so much effort into problems on the other side of the world. America has it's own problems. Mexico is in horrible condition and we have crazy militants in South America. People's living conditions there can also rival middle easterns or Europes or N. Koreas.

America would be happy if powers such as; Europe, Russia, Japan, China, were more assertive on threatening issues (N. Korea, South Africa, Iraq and the middle east in general).

America put large amounts of money in rebuilding countries and when countries show they can handle themselves (just being aware of threats). Then America will start letting go of their grip on countries.

No you won't. You'll be asking them to demonstrate that their training was effective, that they can use the supplied tools competently, and to justify their pay.

Working together doesnt mean agreeing.

 

When you disagree its all the more important to work together and so better understand each other and hopefuly influence each other for the better.

 

Simply turnng away from someone you diagree with achieves nothing.
