PeaceNik: Why did you say we are
We are invading Iraq because it is inviolation of
security council resolution 1441. A country cannot
be allowed to violate security council resolutions.
But I thought many of our allies, including
Israel, were in violation of more security council
resolutions than Iraq.
It's not just about UN resolutions. The main point
is that Iraq could have weapons of mass destruction,
and the first sign of a smoking gun could well be
a mushroom cloud over New York.
Mushroom cloud? But I thought the weapons inspectors
said Iraq had no nuclear weapons.
Yes, but biological and chemical weapons
are the issue.
But I thought Iraq did not have any long range missiles
for attacking us or our allies with such weapons.
The risk is not Iraq directly attacking us, but rather
terrorists networks that Iraq could sell the weapons
But couldn't virtually any country sell chemical or
biological materials? We sold quite a bit to Iraq
in the eighties ourselves, didn't we?
That's ancient history. Look, Saddam Hussein
is an evil man that has an undeniable track record
of repressing his own people since the early eighties.
He gasses his enemies. Everyone agrees that he is
