  • I didn't really want to respond to this. But I can't stand to see these assertions sit unchallenged.

    First, s/isreal/israel/ig;. Please. It's a pet peeve of mine too.

    If our governments really wanted peace in the middle east and to remove the causes of terrorism we would be going to war with isreal instead of iraq.

    A statement like this shows you have absolutely no understanding of the last hundred years of history in the Middle East region. The problem isn't presence of a few Jews in the third hol

    • Yes there will always be some extremists but by removing the fuel from terrorism (which is oppression, poverty and desperation) it will be reduced to a more managable level and policable locally instead of with heavy handing rocket and missile attacks.

      There are plenty of extremists and terrorists around the world that are not linked to the middle east - the ETA of basque, the Loyalist and Republican Terror Groups in Ireland, Nazi's and Fascists in the US, UK and Europe as well as the terror groups involve

      • My Point in case it wasn't immediately obvious is that there is less of a reason to bomb iraq than israel.
        Your point is neither obvious, nor clear, nor well thought out. It is certainly not justified nor is it well argued.
        The basis for bombing Isreal *before* Iraq is that it would bring peace sooner if that was what the UN really wanted.
        You provide no justification for this stance. You also fail to prove that bombing Israel would do anything to further the cause of world peace. If anything, it has a slightly better than average chance at appeasing group of pro-palestinian/anti-western arabists for a brief period of time.
        The first thing we should do is disarm isreal and iraq - in that order! by force if necessary, but only if necessary.
        Only if you wanted to increase the chance of mass genocide -- and kill thousands if not millions of Jews, Christians, Bah'ai, Arabs and Muslims -- instead of denying a few terrorists civil rights that they don't have in the first place (under Israeli law).
        • Isreal has breached UN resolutions, deliberately killed and starved palestinians and hundreds of thousands of refugees in 30 years of ethnic cleansing. This is the same justification that NATO used to bomb Kosovo.

          The point is obvious - Iraq is just another dictatorship along with N Korea, Burma, China, etc. Isreal is a real danger to peace in the middle east and world wide.

          If we are going to bomb a country for being a despotic regime we should bomb china, Zimbabwe, Burma and many other equally appalling
