In the current situation, Russia, France, and Germany are all aligned with Saddam. THAT is the problem.

What's really at stake here? The per diem cost

Does anyone have a URL to the actual cost of maintaining
300.000 troops and material in the Persian Gulf area at high
This can only serve to bankrupt America-Babylon even further !!
Keep those sandstorms coming

I`d say US intervention in matters of foreign security is dangerous.
The US supported Saddam against Iran.
The US supported Osama against the Soviets.
Iraq potentially threatened Saudi Arabia.
Osama Bin Laden offered to defend Saudi Arabia from Iraq with his mujahadin.
The Saudi King refused and gave the job to infidel US troops.
Osama got pissed and turned into a dissident, protesting the Saudi autocracy and turning anti US.
Iraq withdrew from Kuwait, now pissed at their one time ally.
Osama attacked the US.
The US attacks Iraq.
Cue circus music. Doo doo doodleoo doo doo doodoo.

Come on and think! You have to have more than that to say a government is allied with al qaeda. How many countries have we found to contain al qaeda cells? This does not mean that they are "abetting" the enemy. I want to see something more than that. Show me financial links, show me weapon sales, show me something other than merely having a cell present. What really makes it a stretch is that these cells are located out of Saddam's control in the UN "safety zone".

I have read your posts and I have done my own research. We've just come to different conclusions.
However, do show a smidgen of respect for the country that endeavors to secure your safety, and allows you the liberty to protest.
Stop it right there! Questioning the government is not only a right but a duty of every american. Our founding fathers had the great wisdom to know that ignorantly swallowing government propaganda was a dangerous thing. That is why they put in checks and balances and gave citizens rights, so that our government would never have so much power as to be corrupt. It's up to each and every one of us to keep them honest.

Some of my favorite quotes:
"The federal government is our servent, not our master."
-- Thomas Jefferson
"The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions, that I wish it to be always kept alive."
-- Thomas Jefferson

Exactly. It is our obligation to draw logical conclusions, not swallow others propaganda.
Right - but how can I swallow the shaking Saddam-al qaeda connection? Surely there must be stronger evidence our government could provide us if this was true. They give us nothing and expect us to believe it. How can you draw a logical conclusion from flimsly circumstantial evidence?
According to your mode of operation on this forum, you have very few positive statements to contribute about the liberties afforded you. It must be awful to live in such constant negativity.
Why do you think I don't appreciate the freedoms in america? Do I show appreciation by believing the Saddam-Al Qaeda connection? Do I show it by supporting an unjust war? Doesn't sound very american-like to me. We were given a voice and that means we should use it. How is expressing my opinion translated into non-appreciation???? I suppose you will accuse me of being anti-american next

Anyone care to do a Google and tell me where this quote originally came from? All I can find are right wing pro war propaganda sites. I`d hate to think this is a piece of fiction.

I have to disagree with you. Perhaps you missed my last post in regards to the czech-slovak anti-chemical unit. I praised the US for making this alliance which could help to protect our soldiers and innocent civilians in case of a chemical attack. Looks like we have learned from the last gulf war and are taking better precautions. Have you not read any of my posts in which I defend americans against the stupid stereotypes portrayed here? Have you not seen my posts where I have said that all politicians are playing their own games? Didn't you read what I wrote to Viking396?
Perhaps you are seeing what you want to see?
You didn't state I was anti-american. I asked the question if that was the next step.
