Default Your thoughts about the iraqi war

I've been thinking about this war we are in, and spoke to my grandmother on this. I told her this is probably the hardest war we have ever been in. I mean, in WWI we were fighting christians, WWII we kinda had it hard, because of the Kamekazé, but this is really hard because they don't care if they get blown up, they blow themselves up!


so what i'm saying is, would you count this as a really hard war?

No, not at all. I wouldn't even call it a war, it's more like random skirmishes and bombings. It's hurting America and Iraq too much right now, it needs to stop.

We are only in it because we want the oil, we don't really care about the country.

It makes the people in power richer and richer, so they are going to do everything they can to keep it going.

And the fact that they "blow themselves up" isn't what makes this war "hard".

But in with blowing themselves up they also took out thousands of planes and tens of battleships, so it was within good reason; it hurt us more than them, although that was at the ends of the war.

And I think the Iraq "war" is pointless. They throw a terrorist attack at us, and then we go attack them with our army... and get no where.

Exactly, and, Dick Cheney knows that he can use the terrorist attack as an excuse to go to war with Iraq, and make Haliburton a lot of money.

The Iraqi war was just a front to keep Bush in power.

Aren't the US government building 6 military bases all within the vicinity of large sums of Iraqi oil?

I admit that I haven't really delved into the world that is the America/Iraq war, but I do think that when it gets to the stage that a journalist from Iraq has to throw a shoe at the American president to try and assassinate him (voice of the people ftw!), someone needs to put a stop to it.

The war liberated many Iraqis from Saddam Hussein, or so some say. It looks like it, but it is wrong.

America just wants to keep its debt low, so instead of buying oil, they take it by force. Pity Iraq.

Oh, and they wanted Saddam dead. That was the main reason why Saudi Arabia was spared. Apparently they still hate Iraq...

Because they actually have half a reason to invade Iraq, you mean. They would invade Saudi if they could, but they couldn't, so they settled for Iraq.

Bush phailed badly on this.

Right. So you're saying, on the pretext of hating Saddam and wanting to kill him, they invade Iraq.

Right?

I can see why we went to war with them the first year, but now it just seems it's just two countries killing each other and getting no where. I just have a feeling that SOME American citizens will treat the these soldiers like they did the Vietnam vets.
