What does the right to freedom of speech have to do with an invasion of Iraq? We are not talking about an invading hostile power. Saddam had tons of chemical weapons in the first Gulf War and they were basically useless to him because Bush Sr. told him if he used them there would be armageddon in Baghdad. The guy is so powerless against our army that he cannot even kick us out of the no fly zone. According to one of cphillips previous posts his troops want to surrender before the war even begins. We do not have an immediate threat. It would be great to see the administration heal the breech with our allies and get a united front. According to oldsoldiers last post this may be possible.

Screw SaddaM, Bin Laden, and all other people who do not support the US...We do not need anyone they need us...just think about this all you people with different opinions...some countries can not even have a discussion like this...America is a free country and we should be very thankful, but you forget people have to stand up and fight for this $hit.....
If anything I see everyone saying, "I support the president because he is the president" much more terrifying than Iraq. What would be next? Are we all going to goose step and sing songs about our beloved Fatherland? If people support the president because they are convinced of the REASONS I don't really have a problem with that. I may disagree with those reasons but at least it isn't the "Because Stone Cold SAYS SO!" reason.
They are not raised to hate us! Many people emmigrate here because they want to experience opportunity in the US and enjoy our way of life. When you see people dancing in the street that is only a small percentage of the total population. We have marches in the US as well yet people who partake in them are a very small percentage of the whole. A Serbian once told me that the reason that peace is so difficult is because one side loses his father and the child is raised being constantly reminded by the mother, "remember what they did to your father!" He grows up and takes his revenge and a mother now on the other side is reminding her child, "remember what they did to your father!" That is NOT the path of our nation. Everything that Bush Sr. said in the quote above is what makes the US GREAT not what makes us weak. We do not want to become a country of eye for eye, tooth for tooth, bigots!
All i am saying is this do not be scared of a war in Iraq...be scared if the United States would not invade...Also i say fight fire with fire...you bomb our country then we will bomb yours...you kill our families then we will kill yours...Already iam going to get some grief for saying this, but this is the only way to fight terrorism...when people are brought up to hate Americans then there is nothing we can do about it...i say take there oil and whatever else we want...maybe a taste of there own medicine will sober them up!!
