I just briefly went over the article but I agree with Gore that we need to stay the fuck out of Iraq.
Look at these couple points:
1) We are going to lose a lot of men over there. It's not going to be easy. Iraq alone has 15,000 Republican guards men in the major cities. I believe the Iraq army totals out at 100,000 + thousand men... I could be wrong, but his army isn't necessarily small.
2) We believe that he has chemical and biological weapons in mass quanity at his disposal. This could wipe out a good number of our troops if he decides to pursue this type of warfare.
3) China and Russia...
If we attack Iraq, what do you think China's attitude will be? I will bet anyone here that there going after Tawain. China's mentality will be that if America can attack other countries that they deem to be a threat, then we can attack Tawain because they have disobeyed our ruler and we deem Tawain a threat. What will America's response be? I guess we will attack China as well.
And how about Russia.. If I'm not mistaken, I believe that Iraq owes the Russian's about 8 billion dollars. And let's see... Russia is in major debt and turmoil.. What will there attitude be? I can allmost guarantee you that they will be selling there stock pile of weapons to 3rd world countries because there broke!!! Are we going to pay Russia 8 billion when we invade and occupy Iraq? HELL NO!!!
4) Our occuptation in Iraq will last 10 years at the minimum. Can we afford this? Hell no!! We're in a recession and in major debt. Do you really want your tax dollars to go to Iraq so we can build it up, but yet we may never personally visit the area.
These are just a couple of reason's why we need to stay the hell out of Iraq. Yes, Sadam is an evil man but he has not showed the capability to threaten this great nation . He has some biological and chemical weapons and in my opinion that's all he has. Bush is on this personal crusade and it sickens me. Thank god I'm past the draft age.
Get the body bags ready.....
