O.K., so no one wants war (big surprise), but if we all got what we wanted my wife would have Double-Dís
Saddam is a mad ass. Itís impossible to know what he would do with the weapons of mass destruction that he might have, and itís impossible to even know what he has because of all the restrictions he puts on the weapon inspectors.
No one can say what they think he might have or not because he doesnít let anyone fully inspect his country (suspicious if you ask me). He has the power to stop all of this by letting us check under every rock..
His is an international risk to the world (yes that includes Europe) and a mass killer of his own people. I read yesterday that he has (Iím not making this up, it was in a real report) paid rapists. If you escape the country he has them videotape the rape of your mom, or sister, or wife, and sends them to you to prove that he still has power.
A few months ago the world was against the US going into Afghanistan, but they still did and the people that where liberated danced in the streets, shaved their beards, and praised the US. I think something similar will happen here.
The real question isnít if we should take out Saddam, itís what should we do afterward. We canít leave a vacuum for another power hungry mad ass to take over.
