The War in Iraq is Wrong

Posted on 04/09/2003 9:46:29 AM PDT by Jonathan AG

Ban me, but have the courage to accept the truth.

This War is wrong. Many innocent Iraqis have died. Many Americans have died.

Iraq is in chaos. No food. No water. No power.

I don't care if staged events involving a few criminals and looters make the people appear to be happy. Ask the ones who had their lives destroyed by American bombs.

There are no WMDs. America will remain in Iraq long enough to:

A) plunder its resouces

B) ensure a Bush election victory in spite of massive deficits and a terrible economy.

THIS WAR IS WRONG.

"Many innocent Iraqis have died"

Let me tell you something you incrate, IF I were under such a dictatorship as the Iraqi people, I AM GOING TO TELL YOU RIGHT NOW, BOMB THE HELL OUT OF ME, BECAUSE I KNOW IN DOING SO YOU ARE FREEING AND LIBERATING THOUSAND OF OTHERS" I WILL BE HAPPY TO DIE, SO THAT MANY OTHER CAN BE SAVED."

Now go sit on your bomb and finish your business.

GOD BLESS AMERICA, we are still the greatest nation in the world and all because of GOD'S Grace, and we are sharing that grace with the Iraqi people. Remember that you dolt.

Rarely in life does anyone have an opportunity to point to someone and say, without a doubt, "There! There is someone who has it utterly and exactly wrong!"

Today we have that opportunity and I thank you.

Your post will serve here on FR as the watershed moment of the liberal demise in this country. You are irrefutable proof that some people, no matter the truth staring them in the face, will deny it.

I hope you're not banned. I want you to post more opinions. I want to read them. Honestly.

Still here?

Not only are the Iraqi citizens experiencing some temporary difficulties, big statues of an oppressive dictator are being torn down by the citizens.

It may be making the news today, but this sort of thing has been going on for days now.

Or do you think that they prefer to be under Saddam's thumb?

Your perspective might have carried more weight if it wasn't your first day posting with this account.

Yes, war kills people, sometimes innocents. Left in power, Saddam would have killed many, many more than this war has killed. Saddam killed and tortured innocent people daily. Saddam's regime JAILED CHILDREN!!! Do you understand that? They jailed children. Wake up you insipid fool.

If it's appropriate to ask those who've lost loved ones to our war against Saddam about the legitimacy of our actions, is it not equally appropriate to ask those who've had their lives and families destroyed by Saddam's evil regime?

Might not the issue be decided on the bais of which path is more likely to prevent further evil in the future?

Is silence (and inaction) in the face of evil also not evil?

Are you not evil in defending Saddam and arguing against his removal?

Do you agree with the concept of a just war? Yes or No.

I just saw Roger Moore (James Bond) on TV. An interviewer asked him about the statue being pulled down and the FIRST THING he said was:

"Well, we need humanitarian aid in there".

A sort of liberal "nothing to see here folks -- keep moving". Pathetic that someone can't, for even two seconds, appreciate the fact that so many human beings are acquiring their first taste of freedom.

A woman living in Iraq said today, "I'm 49 years old, but my life begins today".

Wow...what insight you have, Jonathan AG...thanks so much for sharing your brilliant perception.

I coulda sworn the joy in Baghdad this morning was genuine...my mistake.

So, uh...are you Tom Daschle? Are you French? Are you Michael Moore? Are you awake?

-Many innocent Iraqis have died. (But how many would have died ANYWAY, if the US and UK had not intervened and sprung all the prisons open?)

-Many Americans have died. (Define "many". The ratio of Americans killed to the number in the theater is extraordinarily low.)

-Iraq is in chaos. (Iraq was ALREADY in chaos.)

-No food. (Resources had been poorly allocated before the liberation.)

-No water. (Also, a further indication of the chaos that had already engulfed Iraq BEFORE liberation.)

-No power. (Policy decision of the Ba'athist regime in the last hours before being made entirely irrelevant. NO coalition action was ever directed at the power grid.)

-I don't care if staged events involving a few criminals and looters make the people appear to be happy. (Nobody could have staged that demonstration in Paradise Square, where the statue was pulled down. Remember the Berlin Wall?)

-Ask the ones who had their lives destroyed by American bombs. (A very distinct minority, about equal to the number in the Fedayeen Saddam and the Republican Guard.)

-There are no WMDs. (They have all been transferred to Syria. And yes, we will probably go looking there next.)

Isn't it remarkable how the mentally-challenged don't see the humor of using "it's the truth!" as a rational argumentation point?

Sure, that is "staged". You can get the Iraqi people who are SUPPOSE to hate us to kiss the MARINES. /sarcasm

These people are more delusional than ever. Next we will be hearing that it was all Bill and Hillary Clinton's idea to liberate them. If we wanted to dominate the country I kind of doubt all of these wonderful military men and women would be talking about wanting to GO HOME as soon as they FINISH THEIR JOB. Dumb, dumb, dumb *ss people.

If we wanted "their oil" we would just TAKE IT! We would have TAKEN IT YEARS AGO if that's what this was about! Damn liberals make me sick!

Here we have honorable men and women GIVING THEIR LIVES for the FREEDOM of the IRAQI PEOPLE and stupid jerks like this can't figure it out. Some people will NEVER GET IT! I don't plan on spending any time in trying to explain it. Let them stew in their hatred of anything Bush or conservatives. They will be in the MINORITY for YEARS to come. Reasonable people would take another look at their logic before they make an *ss of themselves.

Hmm. To zot, or to continue pummeling Jonathan AG's arguments like a disarmed Fedayeen Saddam turned loose in Saddam City. Decisions, decisions that our AM has to make.

The sight of freedom has that effect on those who love tyranny.

What happened, the man posing was given an extra tablespoon of clean drinking water for that performance.

Obviously, not everyone hates America the way you do.

BTW, Where are the WMDs - the reason Bush had for this war in the first place.

I figure the Administration will let idiots like you howl for a couple of weeks, then display the vast array of poisons that no longer threaten our security. Along with with lot of info about the horrors of the socialist regime you leftists tried to defend. Nobody rational will care what your side says after that.

I admire your willingness to post here. I really wiish, though, that you had backed up your statements with some facts. So, let me ask these questions:
1) If we wanted Iraq's resources, why didn't we just keep coming back during "Desert Storm"? [For that matter, why did we leave Kuwait back then, if we were interested in those resources?]
2) If there are no WMDs, then why did Saddam give so many of his troops protective suits and gas masks? --Out of the goodness of his heart? [You know good and well that he wasn't afraid that the US would use them.]
By the way, what did you think of Saddam's children's prison? The news reports that some children had been kept in there for up to 5 years.

I second that emotion.

We need to keep some leftist pets around just to kick in the ribs every now and then.

This is one of those moments.

When I read about the communist movement in the US, and their pathetic twisting of the truth and refusal to see the reality of Stalin (as just one example among many), I often wondered how anyone could be so ideologically blinded.

Today's modern leftist provides a real time answer and example of this disease.

More, please more!
