Open Letter Regarding IRAQ
Subject: United Nations, United States, Material Breach, and Iraq
The definition of an ally is a friendly nation or group of nations coming together to fight a common enemy (any armed adversary, especially a member of an opposing military force); Saddam Hussein is that common enemy.
Saddam Hussein has murdered, gassed, and raped his own people, who, by the way have no choice in his presidency. Yet, in 2003, our supposed allies (the people we have helped for years by fighting battles and handing money to them) believe that the war we choose to fight is unnecessary. Yes, it is unnecessary, if Saddam Hussein had co-operated with the United Nations and us fully. Saddam Hussein cannot half step this process of eliminating weapons of mass destruction. Yes, it is unnecessary, if Saddam Hussein was not harboring terrorists. Yes, it is unnecessary, if Saddam Hussein was not hiding a well thought out weapons plan consisting of the most dangerous chemicals in existence. This war has been necessary for decades.
What group or body of sane humans has the right to say that the United States is fighting over oil or anything other than to prevent more nations from taking up terrorist activities? If this were a fight over oil, everyone but the US should be involved in it. After all, we do not get as much if any oil as the French do from Iraq. I say go forward and enforce the treaty by any means necessary. I also say to cut France and Germany off of any financial help. If it were not for the United States all of France would have been speaking German since 1917. If it were not for the United States, France would not exist today because we bankrolled their bankrupt country in the 50's. If it were not for the United States, France would have suffered another humiliating defeat in Vietnam just as they did in Algeria.
I truly believe we are 100 % correct and justified in attacking Iraq. They put themselves in this breach of contract and now they are not full trying to get out of a war it without living up to their responsibilities.
People are comparing Bush to Hitler and then praising Saddam Hussein. It is the most horrifying thing that I have seen. "The inspections are working. Saddam is co-operating." Oh yea, except for one thing, what was Saddam working on any kind of weapons program from 1991 anyway? There was already a broken agreement and as evidenced with the recent findings of the Al-Samoud 2 missiles that Saddam was hiding and only after being found destroys while others weapons of mass destruction are more than likely being manufactured as you read this.
This is not about what the UN inspectors can find - it is about Iraq complying fully with the UN and disclosing his weapons of mass destruction. What else is Saddam hiding and not telling the UN? He is playing a deadly childish games of cat and mouse with his nation's security and wellbeing of its people. The security of Iraq and the world are at steak by allowing such a ruthless dictator to remain in power.
On killing of innocent people, it is true, innocent lives are going to be lost, by no means is it intentional. Saddam Hussein, Osama Bin Laden, and Hitler very much lied and covertly intentionally killed innocent people, unlike President Bush, who has peppered Iraq with warnings of impending war. Imagine that, Iraqi citizens do not have the freedom of choice. Do not tell me that you do not think that the people of Iraq would rise against Saddam if they had a chance. Saddam Hussein has more power than HIS PEOPLE; George Bush does not have more power than THE PEOPLE as he is a man of the people by the people and for the people of the United States and entrusted with the great powers of presidency.
America is the land of the free, the home of the brave, and proud of all we have. America is not a perfect country but a far better one than any other is. America is the land of opportunity, a country that people all over the world come to be a part of. I am proud to say that I am an American, a supporter of our Government. As an American I can say that I of all people do not want a war, but I also know American know that if need be I must sacrifice everything I hold dear in order to stand up for our country and protect our people, in this home of the free and the brave.
We are still recovering in the U.S. trying to hold our heads up high after the 9-11 terrorist attack, even though we are afraid to walk on the streets without Gas Masks, duct tape, and other survival materials. Some are still afraid to open their own mail. If any other country were in this fix, they would expect prompt assistance from the U.S. and we would probably give our full support. Why do the members of the UN and allies of United States not want us to attempt to stop terrorism against the United States?
The systematic use of violence as a means to intimidate or coerce societies or governments, we are losing the War on Terrorism because of our allies' intimidation to rise up against it. How do you expect to win the War on Terrorism without the use of force? In the US, people are TERROR-fied, to fly on airplanes, people are TERROR-fied to open their own mail, and people are TERROR-fied when walking the streets. What it comes down to is that, the world is terrified of Saddam Hussein and Osama Bin Laden. WHY NOT FIGHT FOR THE FALL OF TERRORISM?
We as Americans cannot want a war and pray for a better resolution but we must realize that this country we call America would not be what it is today if we had not stood on the battlegrounds. Yes, war is not an easy position for us or a decision we take lightly however, it is what is brought before us, and we will not cower. If we do not try to stop terrorism then we might as well just lie down and not be America anymore, we, as Americans are strong and ready for justice for the world and us. My hope is that the United Nations will stand strong and not become an irrelevant debating club. The United Nations needs to stand firm with its resolutions and be fully prepared to hand down more than just words.
What America wants is freedom from terrorism. If you allow a weed such as terrorism to take hold, it will grow uncontrollable from cell to cell and country to country.
