Iraq invasion was right

Reader comment on item: What If the United States Had Not Invaded Iraq

Submitted by Amitabh tripathi (India), Sep 12, 2005 at 03:24

In last four years on two occasions every country of this world was compelled to come out clear with its policy one was attack on WTC on 9/11 and other was the American decision to invade to Iraq.

9/11 attack polarised the whole world against Islamic terrorism and America was seen as an honest leader in this war on terror,but its decision to invade Iraq created some apprehension in other countries about the intentions of America. American decision invited criticism from various corners. European union was very much divided on this issue and developing nations also get apprehensive towards imperialistic ambitions of America. Now that Iraq is free from Saddam Hussein and new establishment is going to take over Iraq at this juncture, American decision can be analysed well.

In his previous article (what do the terrorists want?) Mr Daniel Pipes has indicated Iraq invasion by America could be portrayed by Islamists as an instance of muslim suffering but this is not the only reason behind Islamic terrorism. This is the reality which we have to realise. No can deny nowadays Iraq has become breeding ground for humanbombs,car bombs and other terrorist activities. but if Iraq would not have been invaded, some other country would have been confronted with this situation.

When Israel was lone victim of phalestine terrorism, very few countries of this world took it seriously. every one talked about it as a border dispute between two countries. Phalestine was always subject of sympathy for many countries including India also, but when India herself became victim of Islamic terrorism, then we realised the link between Arab-Phalestine tussle and Islamic terrorism. Islamic terrorists live in its utopian world of Khilafat and to fulfill this mission they recruit muslims worlwide with their so called "muslim suffering"theory. This muslim suffering theory started from Israel, Kashmir, Chechenya and now it has entered in every country which is ruled by so-called non believers. If you have to counter this Islamic terrorism you have to curb the root cause of this false propaganda expansion of Arab Phalestine. As more as Israel will grow stronger, the more Arab Phalestine will become weak. If people try to get insight into the global character of Islamic terrorism they will find out how hollow and artificial is its theory of muslim suffering.

Iraq invasion was very much needed to make Israel safe. Second positive aspect of this invasion has start of the process of democratisation of Muslim Arabs. Only three point formula can curb the influence of Islamic terrorism. To make Israel strong to weaken Arab Phalestine.To democratise Muslim Arabs to keep common muslims away from violent jihad and try to stop the funding of oil economy for the purpose of Islamic terrorism.

If American invasion of Iraq will be seen in this persepective it will be justified from every corner.This is not only a question of justification of invasion, it is a question of fighting a war with collective will power. In decade of 70's and 80's Israel faced so much problem to justify its action against Phalestine and other countries of Arabs. most of countries took them as aggressor,from 1989 India find it so difficult to create a consensus of world opinion on the ongoing terrorism in Kashmir, but when 9/11 happened, the whole world realised the gravity of Islamic terrorism. If all civilized powers will not come together to fight against this barbaric and poisinous Islamic terrorism then world have to be prepared for third world war. this time enemy ...will not hesitate in using chemical and atomic weapons against so called nonbelievers.This is time to wake up instead of a blame game to each other.
