The War Against Iraq

Reader comment on item: Saddam's Rap Sheet

Submitted by David Swanson (United States), Nov 9, 2002 at 12:58

Let us make sure our war against terrorism against the USA is strictly that at the most.
Note the following piece of advice..

I would like for you to consider the following points as you consider going to war with Iraq.

First of all... "What goes around comes around" not only applies to terrorists and countries that protect terrorists (Which were rightly called terrorist countries in the President's speech in which he said: "Those who harbor terrorists are terrorists." ...Nations that protect abortionists are murderous nations. What I see here is a battle between two countries that have at least a 30 year history of murdering millions of its own people ( USA murdering its own people by abortion, and Iraq by its internal holy wars. )

The USA is guiltier than Iraq because the USA has had the Gospel of CHRIST, the Holy Catholic Church, and etc, whereas Iraq simply has been stuck with the Militant Islam which tends to be more prone than any other religion I know of, to teach hate. Most prone does not mean they fail to teach love, but that they are the likeliest to teach hate. ...

Second of all: Economic migration. Our technology and manufacturing companies are migrating to Asian countries and others, most particularly Mainland China. This means that Americans will suffer economic loss, and may possibly need to migrate to rural areas to take up farming in 20 - 30 years at the very most! This also means that Saudi Arabia will not need to depend on the USA for selling oil as it used to depend. Other countries will increase their economies as compared to the USA's increase or decrease. In other words, we are quickly departing from being the economic engine of the world. This means that Saudi Arabia will someday be able to sell oil to other countries, and NOT to the USA and still make good profit. This Economic migration can be attributed to the Free Trade Agreement, but I will attribute it mainly to the murders of innocent children in abortion clinics. If our country did NOT murder these children, many of these children would have made new inventions and thereby our economy would have strengthened even though the Free Trade Agreement would have shipped some manufacturing and technology jobs overseas.

Third of all .... Saudi Arabia which possesses Mecca is beholden to the Muslim world, not to the USA. The Muslim leaders have a strong sense of guilt regarding how much Saudi Arabia has favored the USA when facing the pressure of other Muslims who consider Saudi Arabia a scandal to the Muslim religion for its over much favor for the USA (Which to Muslims is the supporter of their Arch Enemy: Israel. ( Israel, that very small country in the Middle East.) If the US Economy weakens enough, Saudi Arabia may decide to pay its moral debt to the Muslim world by use of an Oil Embargo. Saudi Arabia will not need fear economic loss, as other countries, particularly Asian countries will take up the slack.

Fourth of all ... There are key players in the International Monetary Fund, Trilateral Commission, World Trade Organization, and the United Nations who would like to see the balance of world power shifted through a protracted war between USA and some other countries. Our huge deficit spending to fight our war, our weakening homefront protection because it is being used overseas, and a weakening economy due to deficit spending and OTHER countries, and a real weakening of our economy due to an Oil Embargo and due to WAR. You can be sure that if the Muslim countries see themselves merely as potential future combatants against the USA, they will stop at nothing to try to convince each other, themselves, and Saudi Arabia to begin an oil embargo. Factions in Saudi Arabia can more easily topple the Saudi Government when fueled by support from other Muslim countries. I would NOT go to war with Iraq until we won the war against Abortion, even making the death penalty to be applied to abortionists retroactive to 1973. We really need to focus on this. Again, I stated that some of the key players of the INF, Trilateral, UN would like to see a shift in the balance of world power, because they would like to be the power brokers of the world. While China may officially vote against us going to war with Iraq, their hearts hope we do. It would strengthen China compared to the USA. It's politics. You know how congressmen will preach and vote one way, pretending to be for that cause, while hoping the President will strike it down, so that they can accuse the President, or so that they can say, "See we voted for it, but the President vetoed the bill" whereas they never wanted the bill either. If it can happen in Washington, it can happen in China, and in the United Nations.
