About this Iraq thing

I’m sorry, people, but it sure looks to me like warmongering on Bush’s part. Why is he so anxious to rush in there and start a war, anyway? He was ready to go before he even consulted with our allies and the rest of the world. And it sounds to me like he’s ready to go to war whether or not anyone else agrees with him, whether or not the inspectors find a “smoking gun.” If they find a smoking gun, he says he’ll attack Iraq. If they don’t find a smoking gun, he says it just means the Iraqis aren’t cooperating, and he’ll attack Iraq. Yeah. Uh huh.

Sure, we’re the strongest nation on earth, and we can jolly well do what we please without consulting anyone else. But does that make it right? Bush has taken such a shrill, imperialist tone about the whole thing… it’s no wonder so many nations hate us; I wouldn’t like us very much either. I hope the world realizes he doesn’t speak for all Americans.

And meantime, what about Osama Bin Laden!? Shouldn’t we finish that job first?

I don’t want to police the world. We have enough problems right here at home that need attention.

  1. I sometimes think I was alone in my objections to invading Iraq. I didn’t swallow one line of what our short-sighted president was selling the country. Not from the first.
