Rosey it's not simply about WMD. There are a lot of other factors involved, none of which include oil. First off the world leaders know Saddam is a ruthless dictator. There are many documented facts of him torturing his own people. Killing them, testing chemical and biological weapons on them, etc. etc. Not a nice person. One of the main things we are doing is liberating the people of Iraq.
2nd: There was a U.N. resolution 1441 passed that basically said that Saddam had to disarm. He didn't. How do I know he didn't? Well right now he' firing SCUD missles that HE DOESN'T HAVE at our troops in Kuwait. Before the war started he told his generals to use chem/biological weapons on our troops. HOW CAN HE USE WEAPONS HE DOESN'T HAVE? It is truly mind boggling that he might be lying. (A little sarcasm there)
The U.S. is just enforcing U.N. resolution 1441 since the U.N. doesn't have the balls to do it. In the process we are offering the people of Iraq a democratic society. We are also showing states that are either in a dictatorship or in a rogue status that we will not tolerate them backing terrorists.
The U.N. is a joke. How can you pass mandates and resolutions if you're not going to enforce them?
This is sad, but this is what I believe. I believe there will be at some point another huge terrorist attack upon the U.S. I don't know who will do it, or what it will be, but it's going to happen. The U.S. will become like Israel. Constant threats and bombings. Then all these people who are against the war now will be blaming Bush and his administration for not doing enough to protect Americans.
I know people have strong views one way or the other regarding this war. I'm for it, and I respect people whose views are against it.
