  • Stop the fear.

    Turn off Fox News and chill. I'm not afraid of Iraq and I dont feel that the United States is entitled to judge any other country in terms of disarmament as long as it's "death through firearms" rate is over 100 times as high as in most other developed countries. If you took away the guns you could drop a nuke on a small city every year and still have more people living than with the current situation.

    The whole notion of Preemptive War is wrong. Secretary Rumsfeld says "Who would have help

    • You are not at all addressing the points I am making.

      The UN has declared Iraq must be disarmed. The UN chose inspections as the means to disarmament. Inspections have been tried over 12 years and have failed.

      So I won't directly address your comments about comparing Iraq to the US, because it ignores the facts above.

      As to preemption: that misses the point too, but as I have not yet addressed it, I will do so now. There is nothing preemptive about this impending war. To say the coming war is "preemptiv
      • Saying this is preemption simply ignores the facts. Yes, the Bush administration has said many dumb things, it has provided many reasons for war, some of them pretty dumb. But I ignore all that and look at the actual facts on the table: The UN has declared Iraq must be disarmed; the UN chose inspections as the means to disarmament; inspections have been tried over 12 years and have failed; the UN has declared that further steps must be taken if inspections fail.

        • You might count 34 nations, you won't find 34 people, though.

          If you want a serious discussion, please say things that aren't patently false.

          Even the people of GB is not behind the US on this.

          In every poll, the majority of Americans favor the disarmament of Iraq.

          There might be good ones, but you know, who lied once...

          This has nothing to do with choosing what to believe, for those who can do a little reasearch. The facts are all before us, and I clearly laid them out, and no one has even attempted
          • You might count 34 nations, you won't find 34 people, though.

            If you want a serious discussion, please say things that aren't patently false.

            So, please list some countries, except the US, where the people favor a war to do the disarmament.

            Even the people of GB is not behind the US on this.

            In every poll, the majority of Americans favor the disarmament of Iraq.

            You are not replying to my statement. I did not say anything about Americans.

            I believe your arguments are completely valid. Iraques behavi

            • Sorry, but I get this picture of so many people saying, "Please stop making weapons, Saddam. I'm going to count to ten." and they're all up to "Eight... eight and a half... eight and three quarters... eight and seven eights... eight and fifteen sixteenths...".

              No wonder he doesn't take the UN seriously. At least we're getting a good lesson in fractions.
