ISR, I don't know about you but if I lived in Israel and we go to war then your country will face exactly one CHEM/Bio attack somewhere in Telaviv, just going by the odds.

That's one of the good things about intercepting chemical weapons with the new air-based lasers: We get the missile early, so the warhead will fall back onto them that launched it. Just like 1991, this is gonna be the testing ground for the next generation of gee- whiz weaponry. Fuck Puerto Rico, Iraq's providing us with a LIVE-fire range.

I really feel bad for our people if we go there. The chicken-shit local "hero's" of saddams guard will be hiding behind women and children. This will make our job much harder. If we had only finished the job the first time we wouldn't have to deal with this now. I think we should first drop the prisoners we're holding now out of planes and onto bagdad with leaflets telling the local army they're next.

The Iraqi parliament just stuck its thumbs in its ears, waggled their fingers and stuck out their tongue, and defiantly whined 'Make me!. When a nasty little boy does this to the big kid on the block, you KNOW what happens next. He does as challenged, and makes him, if he has to break both the punk's arms and both legs in the process. Saddam is too stupid and/or too crazy to back down in this situation and it's going to cost him. This time, if we go in, one of the prime objectives will be to take out Saddam by any means necessary, and we won't stop until it's done. Hang on to your ass, Saddam. This is going to hurt. CJ

deadeye, Iraq has no nukes to use. Jehova, Israel won't nuke Iraq because it would deny access to the oil fields for generations to come. The whole point of the war would be lost. That's why the US paid Israel $10 Billion to stay out of it. I think Iraq is right to reject the UN. Here is a nation whose sovereignty is a joke--with no-fly zones patrolled by belligerent enemy aircraft who bomb their radar installations whenever they even try to defend against them. Ridiculous trade sanctions, etc. I'm not saying Iraq is lily white, but damn, what if the US was subject to all this crap? Would you, as an American, put up with it? What if the socialists around the world suddenly all agreed that American capitalism had to go and they imposed trade embargoes and blockades and no-fly zones over the US? How would you feel about it? Wouldn't you want to resist it, too? You'd rally around whatever piss-poor excuse for a president we had, too. Saddam should call Bush's bluff. When ten thousand Americans lie dead from having to fight house-to-house in Baghdad, maybe our foreign policy makers will smarten up. Then again, maybe the Iraqis are nothing but wussies and US troops will roll over them. Imperial conquest is so unpredictable. Just look at the Romans...

Nothing is a foregone conclusion. In America, we celebrate the underdog beating the bully against all odds--David vs. Goliath. When you, as an American, can't see the evil bully that is our foreign policy and how unnecessary this all is, you abet tyranny. Maybe the "nasty little boy" has a point. As far as "finishing what was started last time" I can only say this: The first Gulf War would not have taken place at all had the US not encouraged Saddam to invade Kuwait. It was all a trick to try and upset the balance of power in the region. The interests of the American people would be better served by a more cogent, realistic, and non-interventionist foreign policy strategy. If this is all about the safety of Israel and the global oil market, why should the American people go along with it? It certainly is not about WMDs or any of the other flights of fancy that keep getting thrown in our faces.

A minor point: This article states that the Iraqi parlament CONDEMMENED the resolution, not that they REJECTED it. Nothing's changed (yet!).

Trickshot, I won't even acknowledge your moronic post by replying to it. I will only go as far as saying that, if you care so little for this country and its policies, that you get the hell out, go to Iraq, pick up a rifle, and defend Sadam's ideals that you so much admire......

More anti-American, left wing, DUh crap from dickshot.
Link Posted: 11/11/2002 2:47:03 PM EDT
In a strange way I have to partially agree with trickshot on our foreign policy, just not in this case. If their is even a remote chance that this lunatic has a nuke, or even components, then he needs to be squashed by the collective American fist. As far as involving ourselves in all of europes petty family fueds, etc. and doing the UN's bidding, I say trickshot is right. These actions (Somalia, Macedonia, etc.) were the result of DUh policies. However, with Bush and crew, the odds of pointless intervention and UN bullying are greatly reduced if not removed. The United States of America was shaken to the core by Klinton/Gore. I hope that the current holders of office can straighten it out a little.

Just a reminder: The country is still not secure. There are still Terrorists operating within our borders. The PLO and Israelies have been running a Tit for Tat war for 30 Years. So we know for a fact that Revenge and Retaliation are motivation for Terrorists. Just keep this in mind. The country has been quite, and if their sleeper cells were limited to the number of people the FBI,etc have apprehended then they may have gotten to most of them. However, the FBI has also come straight out and said that they cannot protect us. So if this war does start, hell its already started, but escalate it could get down right nasty not only in Iraq and elsewhere in the middle east but here in America as well.

Hey Trickshot, I disagree with you, but respect the fact you had the balls to voice your opinion contrary to the majority. I guess that is what makes this country so great, but I think that comment belongs over at DU.......

Sometimes speaking contrary to the vast majority means you're courageous. Sometimes it just means you're a moron. I leave it up to you to judge in this case.
Link Posted: 11/11/2002 5:03:16 PM EDT
Well, from what I've read, there is no plan to engage in 'house-to-house' fighting. Rather, the current war plan is to use light infantry and or special ops troops to capture key facilities (Saddam's presidential palaces, airbases, etc) and move out from there. So you may have some stiff infantry battles over key military installations, but there seems to be no interest in actually taking cities by frontal assault. It's far more likely that if we get into urban warfare, it will be in the form of a siege. However, given the performance of the Iraqi army last time (and their willingness to surrender), this will probably be unneeded. Once we capture/kill the Iraqi command (including Saddam), they will have nothing to fight for, and will stand down...

Dude, I have no beef with you and didn't call you out. You mentioned that it was admirable for trickshot to speak out when everyone else was against him...I said that sometimes people speak out when everyone is against them because they are courageous, and sometimes they do it because they're morons and I left it to you to judge which of these applied TO TRICKSHOT. Hope that clears things up.
