Funny that, I actually know very few people against the war, maybe I'm hanging around the wrong circles.
I don't believe you people are suggesting we sit back and let this man continue to stockpile weapons and kill off his own people. You do realise he used chemical weapons on the Kurds all those years back, and he hasn't told anyone he got rid of those weapons. I mean hell, this guy has a people shredder. You want him in control of chem and bio weapons?
The last time someone was building up a military and the rest of the world sucked up to him and tried to be friendly to avoid war we got world war 2. Stop this guy now, just like Hitler should of been stopped in the 30's.
That theory sure as hell makes a lot more sense then 'the US are killing women and children and only doing this for oil!'. Sorry, last time I checked we weren't bombing appartment buildings and the oil is going to be in full control of the Iraqi people after the war.
'This war will make us a bigger terrorist target'.
We're in the western world. We're a target for these psycho's anyway. We're an ally of America even if we don't go to Iraq. It's been proved there's an extremist wing in south east Asia. I sure as hell thought we were a target before this war, and I still do.
The seppos didn't give us that much for Timor, so what? We could handle it ourselves, the yanks had prior peacekeeping commitments. I'm sure when the Indo's come over the Timor Sea we'll have the yanks over here in no time.
