Zooks, there is no way you can compare this to WWII, in WWII WE WERE ATTACKED. Did you just conveniently forget about that.
Patriotism can be a good thing. But you are all blinded and made ignorant by it. You take the govt`s word as gold, even after being blatantly lied to repeatedly.
I`d really hate to see how our generation would have reacted durring WWII, where more people would have died in a day of trench fighting than total lives lost in Iraq.
Yes, I know that certain parts of this war are different from WWII. However, Hitler and Saddam both committed acts of Genocide. I believe that is reason enough to go to war.
One more point is that we`re already over there. We -can`t- pull out right away. We did that in `91, and look where we are now.
-"They do what many of you didnt [sic] want to do, or couldnt. [sic]" So, whenever there is a man who has raped a little girl, I should respect him because he did what I don`t want to do, right?
"They used it on our troops over there." Well, seeing as the United States didn`t use water pistols (but practically every other thing that can explode, kill or maim) , I don`t blame them for trying.
-"for crying out loud! we arn`t [sic] attacking iraq [sic]!" Right, so all the English speaking soldiers in Iraq and tanks with the label "US" on it, do not exist, I should`ve known my eyes were deceiving me. Darn.
-"They may not have had any WMD`s [sic], but they still had weapons they shouldnt [sic] have had." And the jury to decide who is permitted to have what sort of weapons would be?
-"Saddam need [sic] to be put outta [sic] power, because of all the war crimes he has commited [sic]." Yes, like there are the bombarding of civilians, torture of prisoners, flagrantly disobeying the UN, bullying other nations, invading countries without just cause, arresting and imprisoning people without a proper trial, ... Indeed, anyone who commits these acts should be put out of office. (there`s sarcasm here, if you haven`t noticed).
-"He was a threat." To who?
-"...the people who gave us our freedom." If I`m not mistaken, there hasn`t been an occupation of the United States since... ever. Freedom isn`t given, it`s taken. You can give a slave freedom, but until he doesn`t see himself as a slave anymore, he won`t be free, he (and everyone for that matter) alone has the power to make himself free or enslaved.
Oh yea, i forgot, the soldiers wanted to go to war and get killed. Yeah, some of them did. But what about the rest of them? They wanted to join to have the title of a US Army soldier, or a US Marine. Nobody wants to be in war. And certainly, they did not Choose to go. They are the little men, they dont get to decide much on anything. They are told what they have to do, and if they dont, they get Court Marshalled and thrown in jail.
Iraq posed no threat to us. Think about it, the first time we went into Iraq it was because they had INVADED ANOTHER COUNTRY WITHOUT PROVOCATION. Now look at us. What are we doing? WE ARE INVADING ANOTHER COUNTRY WITHOUT PROVOCATION. Consider this, 15 Iraqi civilians have died for every American soldier killed. And yet we`re all so worried about the American soldiers, who CHOSE to go to war and died? Yes in the past Saddam committed crimes amongst his own people. So what do we do to "save" the people of his country? We kill them. Not to mention the Iraqi soldiers who have died supporting their country. Face it if...say the chinese attacked us because they didn`t like Bush, would you not defend your country, even if you didn`t like Bush either? Of course you would get out and fight.
Every single death that has been caused by this war has been unecessary. And if you don`t respect human life above BS politics, then you a
Yes Saddam Hussein is a terrible person, but the United States should gotten the United Nations to support the war. The estimate of the number of Iraqi`s killed so far in this war is between 15493 and 17721. Even though Saddam is a murderer, the same could be said for George Bush.
They may not have had any WMD`s, but they still had weapons they shouldnt have had. (i.e SCUD missles) And also, Saddam need to be put outta power, because of all the war crimes he has commited. He killed his own people for years, and even some U.S citizens. He was a threat. If your neighbor was about to kill thier son/daughter, and you knew about it, would u just stand by and watch it happen? Same thing with Saddam and his people.
They are the U.S Army, they deserve respect. They do what many of you didnt want to do, or couldnt. That goes with every branch of the military. When i`m older, i am joining the Marine Corps, and it would really feel great if i had some support, so why not give it to the current soldiers?
last time I checked, Iraq didn`t threaten U.S freedom or security in any way, seeing that they didn`t have any WMD`s, or links to Al Qaeda... And things like the bombing of innocence is not reported in the press because of the one-sidedness of American mainstream media.
