I like how liberals accuse people of not seeing both sides when they are so very good at seing both sides... of the same side. You can't accuse the leader of our army for the deaths of soldiers. It is a volunteer army, they're fighting because they want to be. Furthermore, yes people die, that's a fact or war. Why doesn't anybody bring up the fact that Saddam had huge holes filled with thosands of bodies... and we call Bush the Hitler. Let's also remember that our beloved Bill Clinton signed a document making it US policy to liberate Iraq. Why didn't the pussy do it when he bombed it to take the pressure off himself!
This is a war about oil, though, the United States is not at the crux of the problem. No, that would have to be Europe who was giving saddam billions of dollars for cheap oil. we have the United States who will probably be taking oil, but who also is in the process of setting up a free and democratic government. On the other side we have European countries contributing to the inhumanitarian policies of a tyrant just for cheaper oil.
Before you argue, tell me that letting Saddam's sons rape women on their wedding night is alright.
As Albert Einstein said "The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who dont do anything about it." Europe did nothing to curb Saddam's policies, and indeed, by giving him money they encouraged him.
A very ignorant statement. I ask you people, please prove that this war was for oil.
Its a fact that we haven't taken any oil so far. So if we're so desperate for oil, why haven't we signed up to get any post war oil? THe only countries that have are Canada and Turkey.
If we wanted oil so bad, why not lift sanctions against Iran and or Lybia? Doing so wouldn't cost a dime, and sure as hell won't cost over 150 billion dallors and thousands of US soldier's lives. Now of course I'd get the responce, "cause Bush wanted to take over Iraq!". Now to that I ask...why set up a goverment at all? Why not just run the country the way we want to with no laws and just take their oil?
Also, why would we risk getting kicked out of the country and having Iraq refuse to give us oil by setting up a democratic goverment? Why not just take it and not have to listen to any Iraqi goverment to stop? Also, why have Iraqi elections and risk anything at all? Why not keep our puppet goverment for as long as we want? It could be years before Iraq's oil program is back up and running.
This war for oil is just a scapegoat for niave idiots who just need to make up an evil agenda for Bush's invasion. They can't stand that he just wants to remove Saddam, help the Iraqis, and create a democratic Iraq.
