Iraq is a VERY real potential source of terror, and is therefore a hotbed for another twin towers.
Here's my reasoning.
Saddam WILL make weapons of mass destruction. He has the resources to do so, because he rules an entire country with a history of militaristic development over social programming. He has proven that not only will he do so if afforded the opportunity, he will make the opportunity by kicking out inspectors.
If Saddam really wanted to disarm, he would not have kicked out the inspectors.
My second point runs thusly, and follow me here my left-wing friends, because I am going to spell it out for you in simple terms. SADDAM... HAS... USED... THESE... WEAPONS... He has no compunctions about gassing or sickening people. At least the US is sensitive enough to the will of the populace to have NOMINALLY refused to use these devices. I have no illusions about my country's track record; however, I think a democratic society would rebel at the slaughter of what we deem innocent civilians. My Lai is a perfect example of how our country reacts to those kind of situations. Saddam's people have no choice about whether Saddam uses those weapons, and would probably cheer him on.
Ok, so we know for a fact that Saddam will build these weapons, and that he has no fear of using them. So, would he use them against the US in an unprovoked fashion? Does he have a track record of unprovoked aggression? Iran, Kuwait, and the Marsh Arabs would respond with a yes.
So, now, we come to the final point, if he had the weapons, COULD he use them against the US. Ah, there, he would have a willing ally in Al-Qaida. Not only has he hid some of their representatives in his country, they would also serve as willing hitmen to deliver toxic weapons to the US.
To sum up, He wants the weapons, he is building the weapons, he wants to use the weapons against us, he would have the ability to do so. The writing is on the wall. If God ever gave anybody a warning, it is to the United States that Saddam is a bad guy and some defense is necessary.
On another forum, someone said that a righteous New Order is the only way to ensure complete peace and security. I agree. If Jesus shows up, I'll burn my flag - but I don't think he minds if nations take collective action to ensure their security.
I hope this seems like a more balanced and informed opinion than the explosive rhetoric I indulged in while in a fit of existential fury. I apologize if I frightened or offended anyone.
