    Re: But why Iraq??

    well, I really have my opinion divided here. This is because when first I saw the attacks of 9-1-1 I thought it was a "fair" war. But after 5 years the arguments to maintain the troops over there have change so many times that I think that there is more than "fighting the terrorism" I think (with all you guys respect, not attacking anyone) is that the president is fighting over the power of the oil there. It is no secret that Iraq is rich in oil. If the US could get a hold of it it will be even more powerful than it is now. On our countries it is thought that that's the main reason for the "war." So I have my thoughts in this: it is fair to be offended for being attacked, if really the people responsible were Osama and Sadam as they say... then the war is "fair" to an extention. But I think that 5 years is way too much though....

    No no, I'm talking about when we went in to get Sadaam, as I pointed out anyone one would have used thier forces in defense but all we originally wanted was him and his chiefs so-to-speak. We tried to remove him from power and he didn't want to go (like any dictator would) so the war began.

    Just like we didn't fight the Germans, just Hitler? You're not really making a point here.

    The point was that Sadaam and his buddies started the war by doing the things they did, I said that earlier. This was just to clarify your question thinking that I said Iraq attacked the US. Sadaam made people attack us under order of death, what were they gonna do..

    So you're saying it's Saddam Hussein's fault for getting attacked because he was an evil man?

    Sadaam made people attack us under order of death, what were they gonna do.
    Did he? Before the USA attacked I mean? Because if it's after than you would call it self defense.

    I completely agree with lebrasiara, terorism was somewhat just a pretext to atak Iraq, there were no nuclear weapons in Iraq, I think that's clear now but there was the oil, if something goes really wrong in Iraq, than US could really gain control over Iraq and the oil there, this is also why it's still so important to leave the soldiers there (of corse it's not the only reason, but...)

    Not only Sadaam made people attack, but alo the believe of these people made, religion is really important there, they really believe than fghting for their country and killing for this reason inocent perons will help them go to heaven, it somehow reminds me the crusades... crusaders fought for their believe, they killed inocent people and were loved back at home... These people really couldn't to elseway.

    So if I go out and kill a bunch of people, then a cop stops me and says "halt" I choose to run instead and he shoots at me. I shoot back at him and kill him, is that self defense? Just an example.

    America isn't the world police. No matter how much they would like to be it.
    Thanks for giving such a clear example of this.
