Iraqis go to the polls today, while George Bush finally mentions that about 30,000 Iraqi CIVILIANS have died since his elective war for oil began. Who knows what the actual number of casualsties is. We already saw how well the Iraqi insurgents greeted the US as liberators.... We already saw how Bush declared Mission Accomplished... We already saw how Cheney said the Iraqi insurgency was in its dying throes... We already saw how Iraq went from a dictator run stable secular country to a breeding ground for terror, on the verge of civil war.
What I hope we never get to see is the return of Saddam Hussain.... How sad that an evil man like Saddam Hussain would get elected if he was allowed to run for Iraqi elections.
Iraqis who hated and feared him probably think at least they were not getting blown up taking their kids to school....
Saddam killed his opponents (as every dictator in the world and some elected rulers do too, with the blessings of the USA) but the rest of the country was safe. Now, no one knows if they will make it back home alive on a daily basis.
Give them Saddam or give them daily death? They'd sadly pick Saddam. So, Bush would have killed 30,000-100,000 for nothing but oil company profits and Dick Cheney's Haliburton friends. What do you think?
I am curious to hear your opinion on the role Israel played in this war. Even though Bush keeps asserting that America is safer without Saddam (when all signs point to a MORE dangerous world), it's obvious that Saddam never could attack the United States but he could possibly attack Israel since it's a lot closer. I don't think that is the only reason that we went to war but I think it certainly reinforced our reasoning.
Good points, Imran Farooq. Quite frankly, the only people Saddam threatened were Bush family friends in Saudi Arabia (the ugly evil corrupt rulers of that country), Kuwait, and Israel. Saudis don't go to their gold-plated bathrooms without US approval, so you can imagine who has a more powerful and sinister loobby in the USA. Though, simple greed of Cheney & friends cannot be ignored as a driving factor. Don't forget how many of the neo-cons are Zionists or Americans whose actualy loyalty lies to the Zionist State of Israel. Wolfowitz, Perle, to name a few.
