TechRep, once again my excuses that I don't have the time to be here every hour of the day
Sabena you continue to regurgitate the thoughts of your liberal college education.
1) My college education is not liberal (more objective)
2) what does regurgirate just mean?
now you are faced with a man who shows resolve to finish something.
I don't agree. I am against Saddam, and against his way of treating people. But you do not attack without the permission of the UN, and without support of the NAVO and your partners. Who will say to Pakistan that they may not start a pre-emptive war against India? And even worse: who will witheld N-Korea from starting a pre-emptive war?
If this war would have been supported (and not only morally) by the Navo, by Europe etc, so multilateral, we wouldn't have gone back in time with 70 years (pact of Locarno). But now, with this unilateral and in the eyes of the other countries arrogant way of acting, how do you think to gain support?
Get ready for the UN to be dissolved; we will no longer foot the bill for endless chatter and discussion it provokes.
I wouldn't say this too fast. Has the US became so arrogant that they can do unilateral what they want? In fact yes, we saw this with Kyoto, Iraq, ... It's my hope that we will found a new and stronger Europe now (and discuss things first to come with one opinion, instead of the several divided opinions of today) to take a general standpoint. Many countries are aware of this now, and I don't think (and don't hope) that America will ever do again what it did today (unilateral acting).
America has made many mistakes in foreign policy this is true what nation hasn't.
I can only agree about this.
In your class studies remember the part where we wanted to go into Iraq in 91' and finish the job but the UN wouldn't allow it?
What was the official reason of the UN to dissallow this in 1991?
You however seem to glance over anything good only to center on everything negative.
No, but I don't see why I would talk in the Iraq crisis about positive things of America in WW2 or so. We are now 2003. Let's face us on this war, and in the consequences, not on 50 years ago, ok?
You have crossed over with ADG, losing all credibility and have just become a radical nutcase.
Than that's your opinion, but I still know what I say, and I am still convinced of my pessimistic attitude against this war.
get a real history lesson unbiased like your education undoubtedly seems.
How can you actually say this for god sake. For info: Gent University is ranked as one of the best in the world. So don't draw conclusions of things you know nothing about. If I learn the evolution of history things, with the backgrounds, I don't know what is so biased about that. I rather think that you can't bear any thing said against America.
All these nations have blood on their hands too. See everybody is dirty here not just the USA so pull your head out son.
If you actually read good what I say about the attitude of France, Russia,..., you will see that I am also disgusted about the reason WHY they are against the war in Iraq. But they are anti-war, and this is most important.
Putting an end to this tyrant and giving the Iraqi people to chance to be free again.
I highly doubt if their will ever be a real democracy in Iraq. It's actually quite impossible. The system is just too different. But it sounds of course nice to justifie the war.
Is this about oil? Yes, Is it just about oil?
This is what I say already from the beginning...
