I haven’t written much about politics or current-events lately. The reason I quit blogging was because I’d always see my same argument laid out with much more knowledge than I could muster on some other blog before I had a chance to write about it. Well, fuck knowledge! I’ve got something to say.
We must take out Saddam now, yesterday if possible. Whether he has any attachment to 9/11 is really immaterial. If we are not rid of him posthaste, he will have a connection to the next 9/11, and it won’t be pretty.
Saddam has gassed some of his own people, tortured and killed some of the others, and driven many of the rest into exile. One million dead, four million running. This is an amazing total, and I can’t believe that the peaceniks in this country are willing to overlook these numbers just because George W. Bush won the election when he may have been a few thousand votes behind in Florida. Key word there is “may,” because all the responsible studies I’ve seen say that Bush would have won Florida, hanging chad or no, in the event of a recount.
Saddam has attempted to build nuclear weapons in the past, we have those “Nazi” Israelies to thank that he didn’t manage it. He is attempting to build nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons today, and if you don’t believe that then you haven’t been listening.
As to the argument of thousands of civilians dying, well, I don’t think that is going to happen. We’ll launch several hundred cruise missles at purely militaristic targets, then send in the troops, and hopefully all of Saddam’s forces will give themselves and Saddam up. Victory will be quick and relatively bloodless. Then the Iraqis will begin dancing in the streets, to the amazement of their “supporters” in the West.
Also, all those that argue that we’ll create as many anti-Western soldiers as we destroy in this war, I don’t buy it. How many will want to stand against America once they see her full might and force? Much of the 9/11 following of Osama was based on our running away from Somalia with eighteen dead. Eighteen dead because we resfused to send in armor, and wouldn’t allow the full might of the American military to be brought to force against the various warlords. This will be nothing like that fight, and it will not result in humiliation. All the Muslim cowards who think America is weak will learn differently.
In short, I think that our victory over the tyranny that is Iraq will result in the best case scenario. Those Arabs that believe that we are good and strong will be emboldened, and those that believe we are weak and without spine will be crushed and will reconsider. This will be our finest hour.
