Rather than making the world more safe, an attack on Saddam could put Americans here at home in harm

The bigger the risk the bigger the gain. Also this guy seems to think that after hussein is ousted that he will have a loyal group of people that would be willing to carry out these plots, It won't take long for the people of Iraq to see that without saddham, their lives are vastly improved.

KoWT,

Yes it's quite amazing how completely ill prepared we are. Look at Israel handing out gas masks, water supplies, and other details in preperation for the eventual invasion of Iraq.

Did we not learn our lesson after 9/11?

MOLTI NEMICI MOLTO ONORE

there should be no comebacks, no second thoughts
straight on, the West united and determined

KoWT:

One thing the article fails to grasp is that the ICC
will not deal retroactively. i.e. what Saddam has done
in the past is not an offence the court will consider.

Interventionism=terrorism.

The US intervened in Afghanistan by training
and supplying the Mujahadeen. Al Qaeda was
born and later sought vengence on the US post
the Gulf War, troops on Saudi soil etc. etc.

To every action of intervention there is a
terrorist reaction. There's no precident to
assume that removing Saddam will irradicate
future strikes. The exact reverse however is
most definatley proven.

It seems that the only way to prevent terrorism
is to remove the arguament, ney the festuring
sore that spawns these fundamentalists.
Hypocrisy and intimidation of the International
Community is grist to the slaughter mill.

Gospel,
Do you mean, concede to the demands of terrrorists, or kill all potential terrorists? Or possibly remove their current systems of government and religion, replacing them with our own?

remember
Saddam had been popular in the west because he managed to gain control over all those fundamentalist tribes in the region. Without him, it will be the task of the us and allies to do just that. Thats when the real job begins. New Al Quaida style groups will pop up every time you look away.

But a larger risk are the other nations that see their interest in resources endangered.

Certainly, if we don't create a democratic Iraq and leave Saddam and his cronies in power, he might retaliate.

All the more reason to depose him and make sure Iraq becomes a thriving democracy. Then we can count on Iraq as an ally.

Saddam, whose life is in perile, said, Are there Saudi Arabia , UAE , Kuwait , Oman , Bahrain , Jordan , Yemen etc. democracies ???. No. They are not.

But they will be. They are moving toward democracy and the US is shoving them.

The only time we will be safe is when every man is free.

Inaction = death.

"Out" meaning what exactly? Physical presence (civilians as well as military)? Investments? Would we be justified then in expelling citizens of those countries and banning investments by those countries? That certainly seems constructive. If some hypothetical Arab democracy declines to sell oil to us, there's always the Russians. And hydogen.

>Do you honestly believe that USA wants to create democracies in the Middle East ???

BMHO, USA foreign politics is dictated by corporate interests. That's why USA tends to establish Latin-American style dictatorships whenever possible. It's much easier to get cheap labour and raw materials out of dictatorship than out of democracy.

There's not much sense in criticizing this practice, however. First of all, it's hypocritic. All inhabitants of developed countries benefit from it one way or another. Would you cut your living standard by half or more in order to establish fair international relationships? Guess not.

And last but not least, it's impossible to create or bring democracy anyway. Democracy is like rights- it can't be given, only taken.

Nobody is gonna decline to sell their goods. Business is business. The important is who controls that < oil > business.
And 'out of ME' means military and their stuff.

I think the Russians have a surprise waiting
for the U.S. in Iraq :)


We are approaching the 10th anniversary of
the federal assault on the Branch-Davidian
church-home near Waco. When the feds made
their surprise attack on Mt Carmel, they thought
it was going to be a piece of cake. Here too,
the feds were looking for illegal weapons.

Interesting that Bush's Crawford ranch is also
near Waco. Bush uses the TSTI airport, which
is the same airport used by the feds during the
51 days of the Mt Carmel siege in 1993.
