to war or not to war
I suppose youíve noticed a major lack of commentary on my part re the war or not war against Iraq.
To be perfectly honest, I guess my lack of commentary is because Iíve been really confused about the whole issue.
Thereís no question in my mind that Saddam Hussein is a major $#%^&* who has to be taken out if not for our good, certainly for the good of his own people.
Heís a nasty dictator who, if left to his own doings will certainly build weapons of mass destruction if he hasnít already. Heís clearly attempted to build them and attempted to hide whatever heís attempted to build.
He's a big attempter that guy.
The problem is that whenever you fight a war innocent people get killed.
Innocent people were killed in Afghanistan when we took out the Taliban, but, hey, most of us agreed that the Taliban had to go.
Although I must say, it pissed me off that this country didnít want to take out the Taliban some years back when we learned what they were doing to women in Afghanistan. But of course the stoning, executions and amputations of women is never enough reason to get men to go to war.
The problem with Iraq is that itís not a large murdering group of psycho Islamic fundamentalists who destroy all in their path that isn't Islam. Itís one psycho Moslem leader and his immediate underlings who destroy all in their path that isn't Saddam Hussein.
There are a whole lot of innocent lives caught up in this mix.
On the other hand.
Iíve had a little trouble stomaching some of the anti-war protests.
I've been watching a whole lot of college kids promenade around Washington Square Park with peace signs and army fatigues that they probably borrowed from their parents. Honestly they seem far more interested in resurrecting the 60ís then in fighting war.
HELLO IDIOTS! WOODSTOCK TWO WAS A BIG JOKE AND SO ARE YOU!
I do think Saddam has to go but I question just exactly why we didnít take him out the last time we blew away a lot of innocent lives to push him back.
It also is a little disconcerting that all the while this country is saying itís waiting for the U.N. to do itís job itís also sending troops over there. It seems clear to everyone that the baby Bush is gonna go to war regardless of what the U.N. finds.
Hidden Agenda might as well be tattooed on the baby Bushís headÖright under
I do think it would be a major PR boo boo for America to go to war without world support. Hell even England is starting to simmer off when it comes to war vigor.
I like that America is not one to walk away from taking on a world class jerk even if we're the only ones butch enough to do the job, but things are tricky these days.
It sure is sad that the baby Bush managed to blow all the ď911Ē world support and we're now just running on fumes.
He surely should have taken out Saddam while he had the whole non-Arab world on his side.
But still, here I sit. I am unable to sign anti-war petitions.
I am also un-able to be hawking it up with the pro-war folks.
I sit uncomfortably on the fence.
I am waiting for the U.N. inspectors to do their job.
I am also hoping the Saddam will use some of the brain cells that got him so much power to know when to bend and how far over.
And Iím concerned as hell that all the world strife lately seems to have Islam thrown into the mix. If that doesnít smell like the simmering for a World War 3 stew I donít what does.
Islam against Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity, Hinduism. Weíve seen this already.
Is it only a matter of time before itís Islamic fundamentalists against the non- Islamic world?
Kinda makes you wonder what creature will be reading about us one day a million years after weíre extinct.
To war or not war, that is a question I've yet to work out.
But I'm not the one with my life at stake. Or am I?
