To see this original post in justgoto's journal...
go here:

http://www.livejournal.com/talkread.bml?journal=justgoto&itemid=245917

They say, "Why are we going after Iraq, when there are other countries with weapons of mass destruction?"
I haven’t heard that argument since second grade! That’s like saying, "Joey, and Sally are doing it, why can’t Bobby?" I guess we'll have to be fair and declare war on every country. Shit like this shows your ignorance, I won't comment on the stupid assertions like; "He just wants to show off to his dad."

Another thing they said was, "I don’t see any proof that Sadam has weapons of mass destruction! But in the same paragraph they tell us that if we go in there, he will use them on us. Do I really need to explain this to you guys?
Every weapons inspector, (even Scott Ritter,) has told us that Sadam has the weapons and has shown no proof that he has destroyed them. The inspectors are not there to find weapons of mass destruction but to get proof that he has disarmed, there has been no proof to date!
Proof that missiles were hidden!

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/2533847.stm

They say, "Lets give the inspectors time to do their job!"
I think 12 years time, finding no proof of disarming has been sufficient!
http://www.desert-storm.com/War/chronology.html

They also say, "Lets not rush into war!"
This war has been going on since 1990! After 12 years of him defying Un resolutions and the terms of surrender, I think it is high time to kick his ass!
http://www.tufts.edu/departments/fletcher/multi/gulf_states/resolution_687.html
How many UN resolutions does Sadam have to violate before the UN will do something?
http://globalsecurity.org/wmd/library/news/iraq/un/#sres

Most of the rhetoric that is being spewed was brought up by Scott Ritter;
"Iraq is not disarming," Mr. Ritter said on Aug. 27, 1998. Baghdad's failure to do so "means that Iraq will, in effect, win the Gulf War." How then can Mr. Ritter credibly appear before the Iraqi parliament as he did on Sept. 8 and declare that Iraq "is not a threat to its neighbors," and that Iraq's unaccounted-for weapons materiel "does not constitute a viable weapons capability?"

Don’t listen to the words of a warmonger, listen to your own political god.
http://www.casi.org.uk/discuss/1998/msg00297.html

They say, "Iraq has done nothing to us!"
Bullshit! They used biological weapons on our boys! What do you think Gulf War Syndrome is?
http://www.gulflink.osd.mil/
http://www.va.gov/gulfwar/docs/Riskfactor6.doc

They say, "We already are in a war with terrorists, why start another?"
This is that same war!

http://news.indiainfo.com/spotlight/usstrikes/08defectors.html
http://metimes.com/2K1/issue2001-46/reg/iraqi_defector_tells.htm

They say, "why are we the only country that thinks Iraq is a threat?"
Don’t you listen to any news at all? England and Australia are firmly on our side! Russia has changed their position drastically!
http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,76928,00.html

Why do some of you burry your head in the sand, letting others make your decisions for you, not looking at the facts? Why repeat over and over some sound byte from a politician that is totally without merit? It amazes me that some of you follow the politicians that never answer the questions brought to them. It is always the same old shit with them; they are told what to say beforehand, and that is the only thing they will address! How you can’t see through that shit I have no idea! But I’ll be damned if I sit here and silently while everyone spouts their crap!

I urge everyone that agrees with me to not comment but instead, watch this rather long video of our boys in action!

my theory is,
if i walked into a kindergarten classroom and gave each child a government position,
they could do a much better job than the people we have there right now.

i'm sorry, i just think sometimes, they're a bunch of idiots. like most normal people, they make stupid mistakes and say stupid things, but if i had an important job like that, i'd be a little more careful in my decisions and try not to make myself sound like a big hypocrite.

That's a much more reasonable arguement, I agree that they do some stupid things. But I trust them to make the correct decisions when it comes right down to it. We are very lucky to have a government such as ours, a government who protects and listens to its people. We have great freedom. Don't you value that?

yeah, i'd rather be here than north korea or someplace like that... i'm not totally anti-government, it just seems that a lot of the time, they just don't make themselves sound as educated as they really are, and, like a lot of people, i get annoyed. but all in all, in the last 21 years i've been around, they've been doing an okay job... i think this war thing just discourages me a little since i have friends who might have to go...

You or I could probably come up with an equal list of propoganda supporting the other side.

Can we give this topic a rest for a bit? It's exhausting.

Like I told someone else... I have yet to hear a valid reason to not stop Saddam from building the weapons he is building and taking control of the middle east..

Nor have I heard any viable solution that would accomplish getting rid of his military, him, and the whole government there...

You sure know how to push some people's button's Donnie boy. lol Reading the comments on your last few posts has been quite entertaining. Got your own mini war going on here. Interesting, to say the least.

Anyway, thanks for the post. People have been very supportive.

A better post would have been the pros and cons of going to war ;]. I still think that Bush will cause more problems by going to war, then again, he's done that since he's been in office. *shrug*

i hate to say this..but i do disagree. I just dont think our country can handle two wars at once. God forbid while our troops are in iraq..terrorists attack us here. Our economy is already in bad condition..can we really afford starting up another war??? Is war really necessary??? What if North Korea wants to attack us??
I just think there are more cons then there are pros to start up a way with Saddam. Plus i have a lot of friends in the military and i'm worried about them. These might be petty reasons..but i have a right to feel the way i do. I think our country should try to find peaceful resolutions then always jumping into war..we have enough countries hating us.

And if bush is soo concerned about weapons of mass destruction..why did we quickly decide to have a peaceful resolution with N. Korea when they came out and admitting to having nuclear weapons and kicked out the UN inspectors and will attack us if we try to attack them???

It doesn't make sense. I honestly think Bush is doing this as revenge because Saddam almost killed his father.

i definately agree with a lot of things you said here. and, if people are worried about terrorism now, i think it will just get worse if we go to war.

War is something that has to be done to eliminate a large threat to the US (Iraq)

So, it's better to just go kill them all, rather than try to work anything out? It's better to kill lots of innocent people and to bring on more terrorism to the US?

The targets aren't innocent people...
But if we don't go and try to stop the military of Iraq.. Then it will be american innocent people on out soil being killed..
Which is the better choice?
here or there?

Again, it most likely will bring on more terrorist attacks, so innocent could die in both places. here and there.

I undersand some of the reasons for wanting to go to war. But, I still think we'd be better off not doing it yet.

By the way, are you always this close minded about things?
