We should not have any treaties to fight fo any country. No American should die for any other country. As long as they don't attack us, who cares? Our so called ally Israel attacked the USS Liberty in 1967 causing over 230 casualties and we did nothing. So why attack Iraq?<quoted text>Kuwait was involved in a pact for protection. They wanted us to help.
And YES he did fire upon our planes and did violate the No-Fly Zone agreement that he made to keep him in power.
I agree, but they did.

Should or should not is not the issue. We do and since we do we have to deal with the fact that we do.
Iraq invaded Kuwait. We were obligated to help. We did. Since Iraq invaded a friend, we invaded Iraq. Sadaam saw his imminent defeat, so he went into damage control mode to stay in power. Sadaam agreed to the No-Fly Zone restriction to stay in power. We retreated south as per the agreement. He violated and continued to violate his agreement, so we went back in and finished the job.

We do need oil and it seems Hussein was making deals with China.This is not predicament we want to be in .
Bush proved brilliant. Iraq has the second largest oil reserves in the world ,it was in our strategic and security interests to take over what's rightfully belongs to us -Iraqi oil .Besides I clearly remember Bush giving Saddam option to leave to any country he desire and the whole issue would be resolved without firing one bullet .
Israel is our vassal state ,we must keep a close eye on an Arab Peninsula and her resources ,this is why we the West created Israel .

IN MEMORY OF PEARL HARBOR AND THE 9/11 TRAGEDY. A FEW QUOTES FROM A FEW YEARS AGO.
My husband John R served his country well as a Marine Lieutenant on Iwo Jima, was wounded and received a Silver star for his actions. Three of our sons volunteered to serve their country with pride and honor in Viet Nam. Whelans were no Chicken Hawks as are bush, cheney, rumsfeld ((who was in the service but saw no combat. He was later given the old heave ho, Thank God)) I cannot believe their boldness and audacity to want to send our youth when they were not willing to go yesterday.

When you sit quietly under the moonlight sky, look up and find the North Star. I will be looking at it also, and imagine me next to you, even though we are far apart, you can always find me in the star.
(Sgt Jaror Puello-Coronado, in his last letter to his wife before dying in Iraq.)
Be studious, stay in school and stay away from the military. I mean it.
(Marine Sgt. Russell Slay, in a letter to his 5 year old son, shortly before he was killed in Iraq.
Admiral Kelly Captain Card, officers and sailors of the USS Abraham Lincoln, my fellow Americans, Major combat operations in Iraq have ended, in the battle of Iraq, the United States and our allies have prevailed Another grandiose lie from the apathetic, arrogant,, vindictive, egotistical hypocrite and lying coward known the george bush..

A soldiers view of the Iraq War March 5, 2004
I am a Calvary scout in the United States Army. I am stationed at Fort Bliss Texas. We returned home Tuesday and I would like to comment on his war from a specialized soldiers eyes. I honestly think that the president lied to all of us. After seeing first hand what was in most parts of Iraq, my whole company could not fathom a threat of any means. I love America, and will defend her when called upon, but in this case there was not a real threat. By the way, the THANKSGIVING PHOTO-OP at the AIRPORT was only open to pro-bush soldiers. We were screened unknowingly about four days before he showed up in secret. We didnt know he was coming, but looking back, all of the questions we were asked were designed to weed out the antiwar soldiers.
If you recall at george bushs two inaugurals there were an awful lot of demonstrations. And if you recall his first inaugural was a dark, rainy, dreary, dismal, dreadful, and very depressing day in Washington DC. It felt as if a huge black cloud hovered over the entire nation as if we were being cursed expecting for a bad omen to happen. And it did, starting with the 9/11 tragedy .By the way, the only one they were able to get to perform at his 2nd inaugural was Ricky Martin.(another you know what .Tee hee he)
p.s george(born again Christian?)bush has no twin brother so that was definitely george(born again Christian?) bush reading to the school children (Fahrenheit 9/11 winner best picture at the cannes film festival) very nonchalant and blaze without a care in the world knowing that New York was being attacked only to run away in the plane and show up a few days later at ground zero speaking trough the blow horn.. You were also able to tell that the apathetic egotist never gave a damn for those who perished on 9/ll when he gave his cheap photo op performance at ground zero speaking through the blow horn. And later on you were able to tell that the arrogant, vindictive. Egotistical hypocrite and lying COWARD never gave a damn for the Iraqis and our troops since DAY ONE.. Talk about apathy. You were able to tell that all of his photo op performances were all for show and nothing more.
