Thanks for asking for my opinion. I'm against the war, because the Iraqi civilian population will be affected. Saddam definately needs to go, but we need to find a better solution than war. I know this answer probably sounds unrealistic but Iraqi's have suffered enough. They've been in wars for 20 years now (Iran-Iraq war, Persian Gulf war, sanctions, etc...). Iraq used to have the largest middle class in all of the Arab world (very intellectual people, extremism was non-existent), and unfortunately that's all going away. IMO this war is unnecessary, but how can we get rid of Saddam?

Thanks for your opinion.
I fully agree with you. In fact, war is the most
unrealistic solution, especially at this time.
Have you heard Mr. Tarek Aziz speaking??
Well, to me it is very clear now that to the Bush
"people", the problem isn't really Saddam.
