Re:The Real Reason We Went to War

Pity, even the current administration has stated that there were no links between Saddam and Al Qaeda or terrorism, Bush has just admitted that there were no WMDs


Don't read the papers do you? The Congressional comission DID find links between Saddam and Al Quaeda - lots of them! If you read the misleading papers carefully, they said no link between Saddam and 911. There is a difference. As for WMD's, they were there. They were moved to Syria as they told us (and showed us via satalite photo's and such) last year, or did you miss that part too?


Your second paragraph about Ann Coutier is laughable. You have been smoking too much weed man! She has never said that. The closest thing she may have said is to deport people who are in violation of their visa's. That is, uphold the laws we already have. You should listen to her, she is a lot smarter than you think.


Your paragraph on the left and the talliban, etc is an outright lie. The left supports terrorists and engages in it directly. Maybe you are unaware of what they have planned for NYC at the Republican convention. They are going to endanger the lives of many people and without even a political point, just like terrorists do. If the left is as you say, how come they didn't support the overthrow of Saddam? Why are they critical of Bush? He did what you say should have been done by the clown... er rather Clinton administration.


The diplomatic credibility paragraph shows a fundamental lack of understanding on how international relations work. Lybia has disarmed their WMD's totally, they are now at the Oak Ridge national lab (Bush was there yesterday to show it off). It amazes me that you think that WMD's would stop us from attacking. It hasn't since WW-I when they came about, why now? N. Korea would be very quickly dispatched if they tried that. I'd do one better and take out most of China too. Two for the price of one. Much to Bush's credit, he solved that impass diplomatically. China really should be more interested in N. Korea not having Nukes. A crazy man with a weapon is very dangerous. He could use it on them!


Right now, the left's contention is that what we're doing in Iraq and the world will make things worse in the long run. Don't be surprised.

If they have their way it will. They are trying as hard as they can to make it a reality. You need to understand that the left lies. They do it all the time. They are almost never right, when they are it is by accident. Remember the years and 10's of thousands of lives it would take to conqour Iraq? We did it in record time and it was yet another stunning victory for Bush after Afghanistan. The left also told us that Bush is stupid - never mind that Bush got better grades than Gore did AND has a masters in business where Gore doesn't have a masters (Bush attended Harvard and Yale). Gore is just a glorified newspaper reporter that rode into the Senate on his father's coattails. The left along with Clinton pushed through the DCMA that clearly benefits Hollywood's interests (guys like Michael Moore - a "stupid fat rich white man"). Take a turn to the right, it will do you good.
