    Those who oppose attacking Iraq

    are just allowing Saddam to obtain the inevitable. HE is behind much aid to Al Qeda as are Iran, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan (though they are trying to reel them in), Yeman, Sudan. But had it not been for the Israeli attack 20 years ago or the Gulf War, Saddam would have had his weapons of mass destruction. Remember, that he already failed in his attempts to build a 'super gun' and had the German engineer murdered when that did not go through.

    It is easy to say that we should resist the temptation to topple Saddam, but do Americans want to risk him getting nuclear, chemical, or biological weapons? Why was Al Qeda experimenting on dogs? They succeeded. The target is the United States. Do we want to allow global terrorist, Al Qeda, Iraq, Hezbollah, Hamas, all who are intertwined to be able to attack the United States?

    • Okay, this is pretty out of character for me ... but, I'm tried of being the nice guy. I'm tired of waiting until our harbor in Hawaii is blown up before we say, hey these people don't like us.

      That idiot wants a Jihad, I say we take it to him before he brings it to us.

    • One question...

      What will we gain in attacking Saddam?

      Who will resume power?

      Did you know that we are the ones the displace the two previous leaders, and now do it a third time?

      Everywhere that we've gone in and replaced power we lose it all over again. Time to wise up and stop meddling. They hate us more for our meddling than anything.

      • Stalin was a madman. He murdered his own. If early on somebody had removed him, it would have saved hundreds of thousands of innocent lives. But I am sure that there were plenty of people such as yourself explaining that removing him would have done nothing. Tell that to the deads' grandchildren.

        Saddam has PROVED that he is a murderer. He convinced his sons-in-law to return after they escaped Iraq. Then he had them murdereed upon their returns. He gassed his own people in the north and in the south. He was building a nuclear reactor until that was wiped out 20 years ago. He HAS chemical and bilogical know-how. He attacked Kuwait without provocation. He was in the process of developing a 'super gun', and when the process took a turn for the worse, he had the German scientist killed. His own ex-generals state that he intends to use his weapons. Okay, France is a big appeaser. They won't get attacked by Saddam. So should they be advising us? What will they say if a biological attack occured?

        The US intelligence has info regarding his capabilities and there is no 'if' there. Saddam is no different than Osama. Osama predicts an end to the United States and declares that there will be many more bombings.DO YOU WANT TO TAKE THAT CHANCE?

      • Sounds like great advise. But we learned on 9/11 that we are still subject to a shrinking world. Leaving them be, with an "unrefined" religion after 1200 years, just won't do. Picture if Nazi Germany had the access to nuclear weapons. These people have no concern about murdering anyone. Look what they did to their own people in Iraq and Afghanastan. your advise is from fear, but that is not how american's want to live.

    • Saddam would not be around if W's daddy and reagan didn't build him up in the early 80s.

      Plus, the US ambassador to Iraq under W's daddy got us into the Gulf War mess when she told Saddam that its dispute with kuwait was an arab matter.

      And when W's daddy saw saddam amassing his troops along the kuwaiti border and failed to tell saddam that if he crosses the border he dies, he basically pissed the lives away of alot of people.

      W is going to end up doing what sharon and islamic fundamentalist want along -- a US/Israel vs arab world war.
