The war against terrorism

Reader comment on item: [Pakistani Christians and] A War Against What?

Submitted by Marty (Australia), Jun 15, 2003 at 02:06

I'm a 14 year old Christian living in Adelaide, Australia. I am absolutely appalled at the lack and reluctance people have shown against the war on terror. When our Prime Minister, John Howard agreed to go to war with the U.S against Iraq, people in my High School, and community thought that Howard was a weak leader who followed Bush just because he wanted to improve relations with the US, and that he is basically a coward. Some have even shown support for Saddam and his Fanatical regime. Howard did what was right for Australia, and every other free country by going to war with Iraq.

The people of Iraq HATE Saddam, and loved to see him fall. Baath, Taliban, Al qaida and all these other fanatic Islam terror groups are a threat to peace and freedom around the world. Their ways are wicked, evil sadistic, and they think that everyone and anyone who is not one of their religion will burn in hell. They commit suicide and kill many innocents in the name of GOD!!! God, does not wish the death of innocent people. Whether we are Christian, Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist, e.c.t, it makes NO DIFFERENCE!!! As long as you are good and believe in equalty and right for all you will NOT burn in hell. These people are blind and delusional, and want nothing more than to see the U.S, Britain Australia, Israel and other advanced and freedom loving countries to fall. They are jealous of us because we have better living standards, education, and more money. They spent all their resources on weapons and instruments of war instead of hospitals and scools. Saddam even funds terror groups in Palestine to kill innocent Israelies!!! He pays $20,000 to all the suicide bombers families! We need to wipe terrorists from the face of the earth or they will grow in numbers and power, and it will be hell on earth! Fanatic Islamic terrorists destroyed the world trade center, killing over 3000 innocents!!!

People need to believe in their countries leaders and SUPPORT the war on terror - it is for the good of all of us. These terrorists see no reason and they are beyond negotiation. They will not co operate because they are not interested in peace money, or anything else, but in suffering, death and terror. Many young people here in Adelaide protested against the war. More than half of them did not even know what they were protesting for! They used the opportunity as an exuse for violence and disorder. We need to take action against terrorists and wipe this looming threat alway from the world. I feel sorry for all innocent people whose families and friends died in Gulf war II, but it was not in vain. Iraq is now becoming a free country and everyone is happy that Saddam was toppled. Look at Afganistan!!! When Bin Laden and his Taliban cult were overthrown, the happy Afgans were dancing and singing in the streets! Those poor Afghan women new what the world meant and living conditions improved a lot. We need to think about the greater good, and world peace before we say or think bad things against Bush, Blair or Howard. They just did what was best for everyone. I do hope this little piece of writing changes peoples views.
