  • It's not quite telling of much other than the fact that one person that the media interviewed didn't have good answers to their questions. That doesn't say much about those opposed to war in general.

    Also, I think it's a perfectly acceptable position that war is wrong, in all circumstances. It's not incumbent on people with that position to come up with an answer "answer", particularly since this whole goddamn war is a based on the idea that Iraq is a danger to the US, and that's hardly been proved at al

      I think you'll find that this war never ended in 1991. A peace agreement was never signed, only an armistice. Iraq hasn't lived up to the conditions of that armistice. That's what it's 'based on'.

      The war has been 'sold' using the fact that Iraq is a danger to the US. I think this is true. He's certainly a danger to his neighbors, otherwise why does he insist on developing Weapons of Mass Destruction (or failing irrefutable proof that he does, why does he play games with the UNMOVIC inspectors)?

      As long as he's a danger to his neighbors, he's a danger to the US as the US stands between him and his aim of regional domination. If he has to ally himself with Religious Islamic Terrorists for a time to overcome the US and it's allies, he might.

      Even if you consider this possiblity remote. The slightest chance of this, and the fact that we have all the justification we need based on Iraq's failure to follow the demands of the armistice, is enough for me.
