“Iraq had no Chemical, biological arms, departing search leader says.”
Was the war in Iraq really worth it? If you think about the results that we have found so far, then the answer would have to be no. So far in Iraq we have found no chemical, biological arms, but departing search leader David Kay (former leader of the U.S effort to find banned weapons in Iraq) says “that there were in fact illicit weapons in Iraq in 1991.” After the war, the Iraqis got rid of the weapons themselves because of the constant U.N. random searches. All of Kay’s statements undermined President Bush’s statements. Bush said that Iraq had biological and chemical weapons as well as trying to acquire nuclear technology, which we have yet to see any results from our massive searches of Iraq. However we can’t forget about the times when Saddam would not let UN weapon inspectors in to check his facilities, or the all around shadiness the Iraqis have showed us in any cooperation. President Bush still believes that we will find those weapons, and when we do, we will dispose of them and prove our cause just.
This article kind of makes me think of a possible conspiracy to just give The United States an excuse to go into Iraq and take Saddam out of power in order to get control of his oil. If we get control of his oil we would rule the oil industry for as long as the earth lets us. This is true because we haven’t even begun to tap into the United States oil supply. So if we use the rest of the worlds oil supply, then we can charge however much we want to the world to use our oil. Why do you think President bush is trying to find out how to make cold fusion type technology with oil instead of water?
I also think we started this war in Iraq in order to give the Americans some sort of relief, moral boost, or some sort of closure for the Twin Towers tragedy. The U.S in Iraq helps us think that we are still that super power and still the top dog in the world and not as vulnerable as the Al-Queada made us look. The results so far have proven otherwise. There have been rumors saying that Saddam was a big contributor and friend to the Al-Queada and helped them fund their attacks. This gave the U.S. a good of a reason as any to go in there and get him out of power. Did we ever stop to think about what the Iraqi people wanted? No we just went in and did what we wanted. Who are we to tell other people how to run their country? The U.S. invaded Iraq for as much of a financial reason then try and stop them from making weapons. Iraq is a big oil supply in the world and with out Saddam in power we can get their oil for a lot less price. I know how people have said the North Koreans” say they are a nuclear power now. The reason why I think the U.S has not paid much attention to them is because why would they even think of striking us? Do you think little ole North Korea would just start a Nuclear War just for “shits?” No, we are more concerned about our enemies of today getting a nuclear power, not our enemies of yesterday. I think that is just the North Koreans saying to the world that they are there and not to be pushed around or thought of as lesser, just sort of them saying “hey we”re here.” Then again I don’t have all the information and am just saying my opinion but that is what I have taken from the situation.
I am sure we have known about Saddam’s weapon production for years and were just looking for the right time to strike, now was as good as any. What if we knew that they have gotten rid of their bio or chemical weapons but acted like we thought they still had them and were a threat to our nation? Even the threat of those weapons justified our cause to get Sadam out of power because out of all our enemies he would be the first to actually use those weapons first. This would be Stupid thinking of all the weapons and supplies that he would be up against. Sadam thinks differently; He would think of it as a great gain to hurt the Western Civilization because it would prove how vulnerable we are. He is selfish enough to do that and go into hiding while his people suffer the consequences and retaliation of the U.S.
Those for the war would say that it is good that we went over there for several reasons one being economic boom we are having right now and after 9/11 we could sure use it. Recent history shows that during a war the economy goes up as well as the countries moral especially if we are winning. Being in a war that we are winning gives us Americans a sense of pride and overall good feeling to being an American. America over in Iraq is not only stopping terrorism on the home front but also stopping it overseas also. When we took Saddam out of power we got rid of a dictator and are in a process of putting in a stable government. Getting rid of Saddam also lets the Iraqi people establish an open market, which will cause competition between the goods and will raise their economy. These are the reasons which I agree with the war and America being over in Iraq. Although there is a lot of speculation about the U.S in Iraq, that is just speculation, our reasons for being over there are just and until proven otherwise I will agree with the United States being in Iraq..
