Fine, Noah. Hussein's actions in Iraq are no different than Bush's actions. Your hatred of Bush has made you come up with comparisons that I would feel ashamed of if they were mine. You would even go so far as to try to justify a mass-murderer's actions...and then say they were no worse than the president's. I find that to be incredible....
What I find far more incredible than that is that some are actually comparing Iraq to World War II.
It seems that's all those who have a deep resentment or hatred of pacifists do. They take a previous major quagmire, and apply it to the current situation in a defensive-offensive type of manuevering. Huan Yi has done that in this thread, as his, if not hatred, resentment of pacifists is obvious, and he even went so far before as to insinuate it was because of those like myself his parents died, among with the Jews in World War II to the Tutsis in Rwanda to the innocent Iraqis under Hussein's rule.
THAT's beyond incredible to me. And should history continue itself and in 2035, when World War IV comes around and we're not fighting it with sticks and stones, people like me and Huan Yi will be having these same debates.
There's no justifying a mass murderer's actions here. It's all condemnation, and I condemn Bush for failing to learn the civility behind the crisis by continuing to punish innocent Iraqi families each day through further death and devastation.
I just find it incredible that not only would someone's stance on this war contradict their sentiments to other disasters of our times, but even accuse those like myself, who never held a gun, never dropped a bomb, never had anything to do with these crises of humanity, as murderers. THAT'S incredible.
Spare me the democratic banter of Abu-Graib, please. I realize that in lean times any point no matter how small has to be grasped tightly with both hands and squeezed as much as possible but I think it's about dry right now....
Fine. Just want you to remember and ponder it is all.
As far as your link, I saw nothing in it about terrorists at all. Did you read it thoroughly?
It's overall opinion in general, terrorist or not terrorist related.
It's just one poll, of course, nevertheless when over 400,000 participate and record that wide of a margin, that should be alarming in any case. That should at least get you thinking and questioning.
The point posting the link wasn't so much to just flat out make the case the U.S is indisputably the greatest threat to world peace, which seems to be a valid fact the world feels the U.S is more likely to be an obstacle in achieving world peace than Iraq, but to show how divided and increasingly unilateral and isolationist the U.S has become from the world, and the consequences that could bring.
