"A few months ago the Palestinians killed dozens and dozens of innocent people and children by strapping themselves with C-4. WHY IRAQ AND NOT THE PALESTINIANS??? I would wish to have some expert to answer this question please. I don't get it, were supposed to fight terror and we just ignore the Palestinians??
, exactly how naive are you? If this was a "War on Terror (for the sake of freedom)" then YES we should have already gone after anyone who terrorized another... BUT the US government doesn't give a hooping funt for peoples lives; those Palestinian terrorists are not even going directly after American targets.
Another logical reason, there are too many civilians everywhere to get an accurate strike, which is bull because we all witnessed the power of the Israeli Air force.
The US military and governmental politicians run on MONEY, Saddam has become a larger and larger target in the past year, there is a greater spending opportunity there than say a few dozen per day Palestinian extremists. The United States will never help or back away from Israel, this simply makes any "opposition forces" more angry at the US and they may take steps to change that. I am sure we would prefer to get attacked rather than go after someone while the world complains about our altertior motives, it is better to defend ones' self in the 21st. century. A "reactionary attack" is fueled by revegist anger where no one will ask why.
Sadly, if anything, the current US Admin WILL let another 9/11-type incident happen to the US only (they could not care less for the world). Compare the reactions in the world and their leaders while we were about to go after Saddam and the weeks after 9/11/01 -- there is an enormous difference.
In order to keep freedom alive, we must protect all or none, no exceptions.
The meaning of life is curiosity; we were put on this planet to explore opportunities.
