Through all the discussions about the possible war with Iraq, I have stopped to think for a second. Why are we going to attack Iraq? Yes Saddam is evil, and he does need to go, but we have a more serious problem in another country, Saudi Arabia. Most of the September 11 hijackers were Saudis. Saudi Arabia has a regime just as corrupt as that of Iraq. Al Qaeda was based in Afghanistan, and trained in the radical Islamic schools in Pakistan. Who funds these schools? None other than the Saudi government. To end terrorism, we must attack the root of the problem, and this root is Saudi Arabia, not Iraq. The Saudi regime needs to and to be replaced by a non-radical pro-Western government.

And can anoyne tell me why Yemen needs Scud missiles please? If that shipment was bound for Iraq the US would quite rightly have sent the whole lot to the bottom of the Arabian Sea. So why not if its for Yemen?

I would tend to agree with Cba, but would add that Iraq IS our enemy, and say that Saudi Arabia is not a friend, or an ally, (except when it benefitted them), and have a very currupt regime as well.I find it hard to trust anyone in that region, because like the rest of us, green rules.....green of money that is.

Yes Iraq is evil and is our enemy, but Saudi Arabia can be tied to 9/11, Iraq can't. By attacking Iraq, Bush is simply finishing his father's leftovers. Saudi Arabia is the real problem. It is they who are funding the terrorists, not Saddam.

I think that President Bush and PM Blair are going to have show the world their cards before or during any military action. I understand the importance of protecting sources and methods of intelligence but we risk the loss of moral imperative if the world is not shown evidence that Saddam actually posseses or is in the process of building WMD.

I think both Iraq and Saudi Arabia threaten the United States. Iraq threatens the entire Persian Gulf including our allies with its military power. A nuclear-equipped Iraq will almost certainly use its might to blackmail and seize land from neighbors. When that happens, the rest of the world would be dragged into it.
Saudi Arabia threatens us by their two-faced approach. They are the laboratory culture where most of the world's Islamic fanatisicm was hatched and they continue to nurture it. At the same time, they pretend to be on our side.

Iraq is not as much as a problem as is Saudi Arabia. Saddam is very, very obvious-a lunatic, craving power and status using toture, terror etc etc..all tha characteristics of a meglomaniac. SA on the other hand is much more dangerous kind of "enemy". They have the world at their feet by oil and turn the supply on an off as they see fit and have the power to ruin economies and commit blackmail by having the hands on the tap. Secondly and most perniciously, they use the proceeds of the oil to pay for terrorism with support of puppets, madrassas etc etc. Atta may have been in Iraq in 2000, but 15 were Saudi's. They are not our friends nor are they to be trusted. The US has even been protituted by them by having bases in their country under the guise to "protect" them and their horrible regieme.

Marco, Cedarjet, Cba....none of you know of what you speak. Iraq is absolutely a supporter of terrorists and specifically the Al Queda network. As I stated in another post...the only evidence I need for war with Iraq, Iran, Syria, N. Korea, etc....is videotape of 9/11. Any of you who don't think these governments supported these terrorists in one way or another should speak to someone with the CIA or FBI. Trust me on this. Saudi Arabia is an odd problem. A government that cooperates with the US for obvious reasons...with a population full of Western hatred. I have no problem with lumping them in. God bless USA.

I hate Saddam. But whoever said Iraq sponsors al Qaeda is a complete moron. Al Qaeda and Saddam loathe each other - Saddam is completely the opposite of what Al Qaeda is about. Al Qaeda seeks to impose Islamic rule, and defend the cause of Muslims. Saddam is a military man, who has killed many Muslims and who is hardly religious at all. Saddam is the kind of man Al Qaeda want out!!!!! Saddam and Al Qaeda are sworn enemies.
I used to think the brain is the most fascinating part of my body. But, hey, who is telling me that?

I agree with you FlyinIllini.
You 'distrust' US government sites and then post that nonsense. Actually I think the Greek government is far more crooked and duplicitous than US government has have ever been. From everything I have read, Greece is actually a bigger bastion of rabid anti-American sentiment than France. So I am not surprised by your posts.

I was obviously joking about the site N779. When someone posts as reliable information US government links what the rest are expected to do? Find Sadam's site?
And when you agree with someone who says that
"the only evidence I need for war with Iraq, Iran, Syria, N. Korea, etc....is videotape of 9/11"
...then I have a very good idea of what person you are.

Well, Greece had the utter "luck" to be "saved" by a US orchestrated military coup some years ago which resulted to a 7 year dictatorship. Bill Clinton himself apologised for that in his visit here so don't try to contradict this.
As for the anti-american chestnut, gimme a break. Everyone who doesn't kiss the soes of your war-mongering President is anti-american to you.
USA is a global power. A global power cannot defined by anything else but its military power. USA has no choice than to engage to a war. An empire that war created through wars can only be maintened with war.

You should read yourself !! What a bunch of nonsense.
What I read is that the USA must attack Saudi Arabia because this is not a "Pro Western" country.
Wow ! I'm impressed by that. That just means that you are a real threat to a big part of the world and should be considered as a terrorist.
And read also "God bless USA" which always make me laugh. Why would God be more with the USA than with Lichtenstein ? Perhaps you'll tell me.

It amazes me how quick the Eurosissies are to bash America and the pro American responses. Why am I not surprised at all that Sebolino is a Frenchie. France should kiss the ground America walks on and thank God every day for the United States. And Ovelix....wow..Euro journalist...another uninformed puppet. God bless USA is just a short prayer. Get over it. Dubya is my nickname due to my first name Warren..first letter..."W". I wasn't personally attacking anyone in here..yet you blast responses without any opinion or facts of your own. Kostas.......Do you not think these government have been involved in supporting the terrorists? If not, you need to find some new sources and dig a little deeper for your info. I happen to have VERY reliable sources with UNBELIEVABLE information. It pays to have friends in high places. As for not trusting the government...its funny...when the shit hits the fan anywhere in the world....who you gonna call? USA. One word can describe what the rest of the world feels about the USA....JEALOUSY.
