    In response of the UN bombing

    Bush said. "They showed their fear of progress and their hatred of peace. They are the enemies of the Iraqi people. They are the enemies of every nation that seeks to help the Iraqi people."

    I would agree with Bush if US did not drop those HUGE BOMBS and boast of Shock and Awe.

    In compareson to the amount of explosive that US unleashed in the IRAQ war, this truck bomb is just so insignificant.

    Who is the one that started using VIOLENCE to solve problems??

    • I agree with you that the 'aim' is much improved so that minium civilians are hurt.
      However, was there really a military need to drop that much bombs??

      From hindsight, we can see that by destroying all those government and ministry buildings and records, you make it harder to bring about peace.

      To me, those bombs were meant to demonstrate US military power in response of 9/11. It is meant to force other Arab countries to bow to US dominance. If that is not another form of terrorism, I don't know what is.

      Do you agree or disagree??

      Revalation 13�And I saw three unclean inspired expressions [that looked] like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon and out of the mouth of the wild beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet(( which is the US). 14�They are, in fact, expressions inspired by demons and perform signs, and they go forth to the kings of the entire inhabited earth, to gather them together to the war of the great day of God the Almighty.


      19�And I saw the wild beast ((the UN))and the kings of the earth and their armies gathered together to wage the war with the one seated on the horse and with his army. 20�And the wild beast ((the UN)) was caught, and along with it the false prophet, (((the United States))) that performed in front of it the signs with which he misled those who received the mark of the wild beast and those who render worship to its image. While still alive, they both were hurled into the fiery lake that burns with sulphur. 21�But the rest were killed off with the long sword of the one seated on the horse, which [sword] proceeded out of his mouth.

      • I agree that he US and UN may be referenced by Revelation in the Bible, but they said the same thing about Nazi Germany and many other nations that slaughtered millions and the world is still here.

        Can you provide concrete reasons why the US and UN are being referred to? I don't believe you can. I believe Revelation said only God knows the time. Anything other then a statement after the fact is pure conjecture.

      Let's see...

      I believe Al Qaeda started when they tried to blow up the WTC back in 1993.

      Or maybe it was Saddam, when he invaded Kuwait way back in the 90's.

      Or maybe when Saddam gassed a few thousand of his homeys in the north, or maybe when he killed a few hundred thousand Iraquis and dumped the bodies in mass graves.

      HUGE BOMBS dropped by President Bush? You have no idea what a huge bomb is.

      Does violence beget violence? Probably. But vaporizing your enemy off the face of the earth before he does it to you is the name of the game, son. Welcome to the 21st century.
