I'm afraid

I am afraid. Tomorrow is March 17, 2003, Black Monday, the day when we'll find out if there's going to be a war or not.

I feel that nothing is going to stop it from happening. God be with our heroic troops, this country and President Bush.

Many things can happen to stop the war. The thing that sounds out is a North Korean invasion of South Korea.

I'm glad I filled up on gas at $1.64 a gal, who knows what it will be with the hysteria that will follow tomorrow.

You forgot something!... God be with all the innocent civilian people of Iraq who might be in the way of USA bombs if your "great" country invades. Add the count (if there comes to war in Iraq) to those BIG numbers of innocent civilian people the US army killed in Afghanistan lately. Innocent people, with no weapons in their hands. The body count will surpass the number of innocent people killed September 11 in USA bigtime, it already did in Afghanistan but who cares about that in America? Did the news ever report about how many bombs were misfired and accidentally killed civilian people? I think not.

The big question for people like you who dont stand up for PEACE is... are American lives worth more than other nationalities? Answer: No. God isnt taking one side in a war, people will die on both sides. Remember these words Miss CareForDogsMoreThanHerBestFriends, they may change the world soon. "The biggest threat right now, to world peace, is President Bush" No use discussing it, because no matter how much most people dont like Saddam, it is not Iraq who wants to initiate a war that may evolve into World War 3. It is the US President who wants to invade Iraq and start the bloodshed. This may come as a surprise to people who live in the USA, but people outside USA gets a heap more unbiased facts about this situation. Including US attempts at creating FALSE evidence to motivate war. Disgusting!! The US government is not playing on a much higher level than the Iraq dictatorship. I say put Saddam and Bush in a boxing ring and let them fight each other to death if they want. That would save all the innocent people on both sides and avoid billions in costs to the USA. The war is expected to cost about 800 BILLION DOLLARS. The US economy is already in a CRISIS, have fun paying the bills in the future.

Please. Give me a break... Your statistics are terrible. Where do you come up with these numbers?

I don't necessarily agree with war in Iraq either but I do believe that the United States is a greater nation now than it ever was in the past. Undoubtedly, it is the most powerful proponent of peace and order in the world today. A global system without the US would be riddled by war, genocide, and chaos. At times such as these I think it is important to remember the old adage, with great power comes great responsibility. The US has the responsibility to use the power that it has to promote stability and peace in the international system. And while action in Iraq may seem rash, inaction (i.e. the French call for continued, redundant inspections) would be dangerous and foolish.

Your call for peace is well intentioned but you should support your arguments with factual statistics - not propaganda.

"you should support your arguments with factual statistics - not propaganda."
Tell Mr Bush that very same thing... huh?

Tell him he needs to re-report the information gathered by every nation's intelligence agencies? Tell him he needs to talk to us about the 50,000 (FACT) Kurds slaughtered in Northern Iraq in the time following the Gulf War or the 30,000 (FACT) Shiite revolutionaries in the South or even the 33,000 (FACT) Kuwaitis tortured, raped, and murdered during Iraqi occupation? Or maybe he should reminds us of what both the former and current UN inspection teams reported time and again. Saddam has the weapons the world fears and has not disarmed as ordered by UN resolution.

Be honest.
Do you really believe that Bush is the biggest threst to peace? If you do, it's because you think "peace" comes by sitting on a white cloud pontificating (although I wouldn't dignify what you wrote in such a fashion) about the fact that somebody might get killed, somewhere. You know, people will have to die if we're going to see peace in this world. Why? Because some people are more interested in their own gain than peace, and, sadly for you, their guns are bigger than yours. Unless they are disarmed there will only be one loser. These people are not peaceful people. You may think their countries are peaceful because you don't see the damage being wreaked day in, day out on innocent civilians.

I am sick of this idealistic tripe which is spouted forth constantly: the world is not an ideal place, unfortunately. I have my own views on why not, but that's beside the point.

I shall leave you to ponder what JS Mill said about people with opinions like yourself:
"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of patriotic feeling which thinks nothing worth a war, is worse."

The 10 Commandments SIX: You shall not murder.

God does not support war.

One of the other Commandments - Exodus 21:12 -
"Whoever strikes a person mortally shall be put to death."

God makes exceptions.

God does not support war?
Tell the people of Jericho that.
