Gulf War ll

I just want to know the real reason why !
I suspect its more to do with Israel telling the US they wont allow Saddam to get his hands on a Nuke. Nothing about Saddam or iraq has changed since the Gulf war. If he develops a nuke, then Israel and the oil fields are at his mercy, in fact the whole mid east would go up in flames. We cant allow that to happen, so no matter what the UN inspectors do or do not find, were going to war.

This isnt about him being a ruthless dictator, hell weve supported enough of them over the years. Its about Israel and the Oil, not in that order!

Trouble is, Iran is also on its way to developing a nuke, so I have to ask, why not them too ? or should we just presume they will be next in line.

Western greed prevents us ever having a mediated long term settlement in the region, so we have to look forward to wars and more terrorism over the coming years.

Rookie, those people clapping and cheering were in Palestine.

God bless the USA and her Ally (The UK)

I think u hit the nail on the head Homeless. Him being a ruthless dictator does not have anything to do with us or we would have stopped him and many others like him a long time ago but it is just another reason to take him and his regime out and maybe slow things down a little over there!! But as u said I think it will be a never ending cycle...... :,-(

What countries currently hold nuclear weapons?

Great Britain
(some only suspected)

Israel is the smallest country but definitely has nuclear weapons and it's influence on the US isn't very small. So Israel is a factor, the oil? Yes, why else should Father Bush have defended Kuwait?

Oil prices rising? Happens all the time? A Bush signing the Kyoto treaty? Will never happen!

@those people clapping and dancing: they are homeless, they are being fought by a superior military power (Israel) and want back the land they consider theirs. They want it even by using kamikaze-like terrorists. They send their children with a bomb, Israel reacts with some tanks or rockets, just another cycle of violence!

I enjoy rivalries on the football field but not on the battle field! I don't even want to talk about this!

we have bigger problems at home.

takes an idiot to tell the president where his priorities should lie...damn shame.

This economy is pathetic (anyone out of work like me should know that) and actions by congress, the house of representatives, and the president as "our leader" are failing us.

I can't stand talking about it though. It pains me to assume we're forgotten, being that we're in his own backyard.
Only 3 leagues this year. No sense in rooting for everyone in the NFL.
