    Why are you against the war?

    The US has provided ample amount of information which shows Iraq is hiding weapons of mass destruction. I think alot of the anti-war people just like having something to complain about, and would never be happy with any type of military and/or government. I think deep down you wish you were a part of whole hippie generation and are finding any excuse to recreate it.

    Fuck Iraq.

    Well, it appears to me that USA has plenty weapons of mass destruction too, but I dont see that as any reason for going to war against USA.

    Alot of people find the threat of USA's global domination through military force to be more than enough reason for war against USA.
    At what point do you feel a war is necessary? Iraq signed a treaty that they would not produce or harbor any weapons of mass destruction. They agreed to it. And now they want to go back on their word, and be secretive about what theyre up to.
    If we wait until we're actually under attack from nuclear weapons we could lose millions of American lives unneccesarily.

    In war and in life, sometimes you gotta strike first to protect yourself.

    This war is avoidable. The US has turned its head (and helped fund) for years as Saddam has slaughtered his own people and grown to a Stalinesque figure. Why go to war now? Why Iraq when the other 2/3s of the "Axis of Evil" is in the process of creating nuclear weapons and/or has announced their intentions to do so? (N. Korea already has 'em; Iran announced they are beginning a nuclear program).

    When the entire Middle East (and much of the world) already has a strong anti-American sentiment pervading their entire society, why increase that animosity by forcing war when much of the world clearly wants it avoided? The Bush administration is ensuring future generations of Americans that there will be plenty of people out there that hate us - more so than now. If the government wants to do something about terrorism, why don't they think beyond next year? This global domination kick we're on isn't fucking healthy.

    Furthermore, I, like many others, feel as though this war is for the wrong reasons - namely hegemony, oil, and retribution.

    War should be the final option.

    What information?! Powell gave an entire presentation on the matter to the UN and nothing conclusive was proven! The UN arms inspectors haven't found anything, either. Meanwhile, Ari promises evidence on a daily basis.

    I, nor the rest of the world, am not convinced. Unless you're watching Fox News 24-7, I don't see how you're convinced either.

    fuck a war. the geto boys said so, and i listen to what bushwick bill says....but seriously on the real, the way theyre going abotu trying to make it look like this war could still be avoided is actually funny, in a completely sad, unfunny way. everyday i get more ashamed of being a citizen of this country. and its just sad becasue it started with such good intentions and really did stand for something up until about 60 years ago. and anyone who says love it or leave it, fuck you. its not easy to become a citizen of another country. if there was a war and canada extended citizenship to americans fleeing i would def go there.

    the us is going to bbe attacked again on our own soil, its sad, but pretty much everyone is warning about it. im not about to let myself die of small pox because the us has a small dick complex.

    this is really jumbledand random..i just woke up and cant think straight yet.

    I like how you have chosen to speak on behalf of 'the rest of the world'.
    Lots of people are for the war, so your statement is inaccuarate.

    You can not just sit back and not do anything because youre afraid of possible retaliation. Doing that, you will never accomplish anything.
    Heres an example..You see some gangbanger and hes by himself at a party talking with your sister. Your sister turns him down for a date and the guy hits her. Do you fight the guy or just not do anything because youre afraid he'll get his boys against you?
    Theres not a real clear cut answer I guess. But personally Id fight him and worry about the retaliation later.

    In a strange sense, thats kinda what youre talking about concerning the possible war. You think we shouldnt do anything to stop possible nuclear attacks on America and/or other parts of the world simply because other people will 'hate us'. Thats a weak argument and doesnt hold any water.

    If you dont like the war, dont fight in it. Simple as that. I respect your right to protest. You can protest and hold up signs until your arms fall off. More power to ya, express your views. But personally I think this war is necessary and so do alot of other people, so think twice before you speak on behalf of the rest of the world.
