Today's attack in Iraq

Please pray for the souls of all the dead in today's deadly rocket attack on the coalition forces. Please help these insurgents get to their paradise as soon as possible.

The War in Iraq is a stupid waste. Chalk up another 20 dead, killed in defense of Big Oil.

No WMD? Where are you reading? Try here for one story... http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,120137,00.html

Certainly, they did not find as much as they expected. How much do they need? The sarin stored in ONE shell would be catastrophic if employed properly in "the tube" (subway). But they don't have to employ it properly for it to work very well. If a live shell or its contents were discovered before it was dispersed, it would panic enough people that the economic consequences would be enormous. The cost of the world trade center has probably gone into the trillions when you account for the economic damage incurred. "ONLY" a few thousand were killed. Is the UK better equipped financially to withstand a similar economic attack? Didn't think so.

He had WMD no matter what you hear from the NY times or the BBC. He used them in the past killing thousands of innocents. He wouldn't have been concerned about giving them to anyone who would take them to the USA and deliver them. Or to the UK. Even HE thought his nuclear program was further along then it really was.

You should consider editing and toning down what is a death threat to the president of the USA.

RE: Today's attack in Iraq

First published: Wednesday, December 22, 2004

I now admit to having expected the war in Iraq to be won in a matter of months, not years. Saddam's plan to disperse his forces and conduct a murderous insurgency, abetted by his terrorist allies, was a surprise.

This by no means suggests that President Bush's decision to overthrow a dangerous despotism was a mistake. On the contrary, it was and is the right war (against a genocidal maniac who was gaining strength) in the right place (the Middle East cradle of terror) for the right purpose (to get the Arab street out of the rut of hatred and onto a path to freedom). In return for today's grudging concession of tactical misjudgment, however, I claim this expectation: When and if we discover hidden supplies of germ weapons in Iraq or Syria, and as future confessions reveal the extent of connections between al-Qaida and Saddam, the legion of war critics will forthrightly admit their certitude was misplaced.

But more to today's point is our difference of opinion about strategy: I stand with those who believe this war was right and that its sacrifices will be justified by lives saved and tyranny diminished. I disagree with those who opposed the pre-emptive fight from the start or who have lost heart when it dragged on too long and are casting about for scapegoats.

Here are criteria to measure success or failure in the battle for democracy in the region and the struggles for freedom around the world:

First, will Iraq stay whole and its people free?

The present answer is: We'll see. The only debate in the U.S. now seems to be about whether to raise the number of our troops there to help finish the job; only a small minority is calling for a pullout. We are committed, as we should be, to success; so are the Iraqi Kurds; we'll see how eager the Shiite majority is to end its long Sunni Baathist subjugation.

Next, has America's huge military engagement in the Middle East helped produce progress toward democracy in Muslim countries where monarchs and dictators now rule? Signs are that the answer is yes. At a conference last week in Dubai, Gulf states spoke openly of economic reform and a campaign against corruption, which must have worried oppressive theocrats in Iran. Egypt, Jordan and Morocco are beginning to see glimmers of liberty's light, which embarrasses reactionary Saudis and terrorist Syrians. The groundswell is felt in Asia, where populous Indonesia and Malaysia are showing how Islamic nations can prosper by combating medieval fundamentalism.

On top of that, America's decision to stay the course after its overthrow of Saddam has helped revivify the prospect of peace in the Holy Land after the death of Arafat. Our military activism emboldened Israel to risk withdrawal from Gaza, and should encourage Palestinians to elect a rational state maker next month.

A final criterion: Is our confidence in the desire of 20 million literate Iraqis to live in relative liberty being reflected in the recent run of elections in the world?

Australians voted to remain our stalwart ally in Iraq. Afghanistan's voters took their lives in their hands to blaze their trail to a democratic government. Americans voted decisively to endorse our hopes rather than our fears in Iraq. Ukrainian voters refused to let a corrupt regime backed by the power of Russia's Putin deny them their democratic rights; they will most likely assert their independence this weekend. That will mark four straight victories for those we Wilsonian idealists consider the good guys, with two to go next month in the future, Palestine and in Iraq. One election may be sensibly peaceful and the other bloodily courageous, but our Iraqi commitment has strengthened the trend.

In 1940, Anne Morrow Lindbergh wrote a provocative apologia for fascism titled "The Wave of the Future." President Franklin Roosevelt answered those who believed "that, for some unexplained reason, tyranny and slavery have become the surging wave of the future -- and that freedom is an ebbing tide. But we Americans know that this is not true."

Less true now than ever. Once again, America and its allies ensure that freedom is the wave of the future.

Come on dude - you think we are stupid? That "sarin" was so out of date it was useless. And Saddam committ suicide by passing Sarin around? The only thing he wanted was to stay in power. You guys have lost all these propaganda arguements - no one believes them anymore but guys like you. The invasion of Iraq was planned before the Bush een took office. It has one purpose - to create an American puppet state that spans the Middle East from the Mediterrean to the Persian Gulf - giving us control of all the pipelines that feed Europe and Asia. The whole purpose of their Hitler-style invasion was to topple Saddam and the invade Syria for the next piece of the puzzle. Instead it blew up in their face.
