What gives us the right?
Let me ask you this:
What if we did nothing to police the globe.
What if we did nothing to stop World War I, World War II?
What if we said the Europeans can handle it its none of our business.
What if we did nothing about Iraq in 1991? You do realize the Iraq would now include Saudi Arbia and Iran right? Do you think if we pulled out of the UN right now that the UN without our help could keep the world in order?
is that Bush has tried to work the the UN and countries like France and Germany but they wont listen.
If you want to talk about someone starting wars without permission DONT LOOK AT BUSH
Clinton had NO and I repeat NO NO N O NO NO UN APPROVAL to go into Bosnia OR Kosovo. DO YOU UNDERSTAND THAT. He didnt try to get a resoultion passed and the approval of France before going into those conflicts. HE NEVER TRIED.
BUSH TRIED. HE tried for 6 months. Whether or not the UN inspectors recieved moer time in Iraq is NOT RELIVANT. SADAAM WAS NOT GOING TO COOPERATE. THEREFORE no one would be given access to all his facilites. Which leads us to the fact that the UN inspectors could not have looked every where they wanted.
And this WOMD bs that keeps getting brought up is irrelavant also.
You automatically want to assume that there was no weapons of mass destruction because YOU HATE BUSH. YOu are not open to anything else. Your not open to the fact that Syria and Iraq were close allies and that Syria was operating a illegal oil line that transfeed oil to Syria and Sadaam got paid for it.
DID THE UNITED NATIONS CATCH THAT NO THEY DIDNT
I want to quote Hans Blix. AND THIS IS 1 week after the WAR WAS STARTED MIND YOU
This is regarding the SCUDS that Saddam was shooting at Kuwait THAT HE SAID THEY DIDNT HAVE
"Saddam has said over and over he posses no SCUD missiles. The fact that he is firing them at Kuwait now makes this war seem just"
HE SAID THAT 1 WEEK AFTER THE war
He had illegal weapons. he was violating the UN resolutions left and right.
He was killing his own people.
WE HAVE ALREADY FOUND THE BIGGEST WEAPON OF MASS DESTRUCTION IN IRAQ AND IT WAS BURIED IN A 6 FOOT HOLE
He is sitting in a jail right now WITH A FRENCH LAWYER DEFENDING HIM.
Now what gives us the right to police the globe?
The fact that we love our freedom and WILL STOP AT NOTHING TO INSURE THAT IT IS NEVER TAKEN AWAY. WHICH MEANS THESE THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES THAT ARE SEEKING WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION CAN NOT BE LEFT ALONE OR LEFT IN FRANCES HANDS.
FRANCE HAD TIES WITH IRAQ. THEY DIDNT WANT SADAAM GOING DOWN. THEY SOLD HIM WEAPONS.
I MEAN OPEN YOUR EYES.
Thats all I am going to say on this. I have spent 15 min of my life saying this when it really doesnt matter what i say,
I try to be open minded to peoples views on politics.
I do not strictly vote Republican as you may think.
If you want to know the truth I want Joe Lieberman to win the Democratic Primary because I would not mind seeing him aw president if Bush could not win. Because he supports the defense of this country.
I dont agree with his stances on abortion or gay rights. But Those are all small things when it comes to our freedom and safety. I DO NOT CARE WHAT PARTY YOU ARE.
Jogn Kerry is not fit to be our leader in the middle of a war on terrorism. He votes how he thinks the public will like it. He does WHATEVER HE CAN to bring down the republican party. REGARDLESS of if the republicans are right or wrong on the given issue he is against them
He always finds something to complain about or to insult Bush about.
Kerry's voting on important defense issues IS A JOKE
I have went on and on and I am just tired of it. Tired of people being so closed minded about issues this important.
Comments like what gives us the right to police the globe are pointless and just dumb thing to say. WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO DEFEND OURSELF AND BY GOD THATS WHAT WE WILL DO.
IF THAT MEANS WE PISS SOME FRENCH GUY OFF THEN I DONT CARE!!!!!
Said what I wanted to say and I am out of this topic
