A few weeks ago, there was confessions from a terrorist in Iraq who would gain from Saddam and his military, and use what they get to support Binladen. This terrorist denied, however, that there was a direct link to Saddam, or there was a link between Saddam and Binladen. I could get the information if you want.Originally posted by Quarto
Even now, notice that it's Al Qaida that claims to support him, while he continues to completely ignore them. It may turn out one day that you're in fact absolutely right, but there really isn't any evidence to support that right now.
On that note, if war does break out, then it might turn out that a lot of Iraqis choose to surrender. If loyalty to Saddam is as bad as claimed, them I think they'd welcome the chance to walk towards American soldiers, their arms raised, rifles on their backs muzzle down, their ammunition expelled.Originally posted by Quarto
Hitler wanted to fight to the death, but most of his troops and commanders ignored that wish. America has spelled out what the consequences will be if Iraq uses non-conventional weapons against them. Saddam Hussein may give the order to use WMDs, but will it be obeyed?
I agree. Frankly, why should someone like Belgium help America fight this war if America lied to them? Why should many countries who are being blacklisted by America, such as France and Germany, have to fight if they owe America nothing? For Australia, we are oblidged to fight because of World War Two. If it wasn't for America, Australia would be in the hands of the Japanese. Now, that might not be such a bad thing, but in any event, Australia feels they still have a debt to pay to America. Even after Vietnam. Even after the Gulf War. But for countries who owe America nothing and have been lied to, should they do what America feels is the right thing to do? Especially considering that America, by rights, should be able to crush Saddam on their own.Originally posted by Quarto
I simply don't like it when people try to come up with reasons why Hussein is a threat when the evidence is non-existent - such arguments are counter-productive, because they're relatively easy to dismiss. That's why for the last few months, we've been hearing the same debate on the news every day, while the whole thing could have been over and done with by now.
