grunty me...

U.N. Security Council resolutions passed after the 1991 Gulf War ( news - web sites) say Iraq must eliminate weapons of mass destruction, and the means to produce them, and that the U.N. sanctions on Iraq cannot be lifted until it has done so.

Iraq has refused access to U.N. weapons inspectors since 1998 and claims it has eliminated its weapons of mass destruction and fulfilled the other requirements of the Gulf War resolutions.

Now, lets look at it this way. A convicted child molester has done his time in prison and is on parol. He is supposed to check in with his parol officer to make sure he's keeping up to his end of the bargan. Now, if this person stops showing up to his parol hearings and checking in... do you think the law would let him get away with not checking in... AND THEN not letting the law officials onto his property to look around to make sure he's not up to no good.

FUCK NO! the law would go and get him. How clear can it be. Its the same with Iraq. He is not doing what the UN demanded, but the UN doesn't have the balls to do anything about it.

shut the fucker down before he does something! He has had since 1998 to do as he pleases without big brother watching over his shoulder. We all know Saddam isn't going to just turn around and be a good person now.

I'm against letting Saddam stay in power and defy the world like he is. He is just proving to other struggling nations that they can get away with unsavory things if they play their cards right.

I personally think all these other nations that are saying they are going to be pissed at America for attacking will be, but do nothing about it. Because if America does attack that is going to prove we aren't as pussyfooted as the UN and will go and fuck shit up if needs be.

I'm not for shoving the western world down other cultures mouths... but I am for a certain level of freedom. A freedom that some people in the world just don't have.

Far be it from me...
I completely agree that Saddam must be removed. One way or another. BUT! We must be very careful about our 'waging war' against Iraq. I believe we must make it internationally clear that if/when we go in to Iraq, that we are going after HIM, and any supporters he may have. We cannot go into Iraq to wage war on the populace. Also, we have a tricky situation as far as the validity of our complaints. If we go in to prevent him from attacking us in the future, what is to stop India from invading Pakistan under the same pretenses, or China in to Taiwan? (Congressman brought this up and I thought it was a very valid point.) I'm all for kickin the shit out of whomever opposes the U.S. in trying to keep the prick from getting nukes (god forbid). But as the most powerful nation on earth, we have a huge responsibility to 'set the example' for the world climate. Ole George is a wiley one, he'll figure out a way.

As for me, I'm packed and ready to go.

I hear you.

But, I don't think China has anything to worry about Taiwan attacking them. :)

Yes, this is true, but I think they's use ANY excuse to take Taiwan by force.

They just want to get a hold of their toy making industry, and who would blame them!

seriously... the world is messed up when it comes to times like this.

verily much so. I think China saw how receiving Hong Kong was such a boost in revenue that Taiwan would almost double their economy.
