*** Stan Jones, as he signs his e-mails, has asked me "why I do support Bush" and that this support means WAR on Iran to him. He wrote:
- "You say:"I want the regime to be removed but not through violent actions."If that's the case why support Bush when there is a real chance he will bomb Iran to hell."
No, I don't want war for my country but when it comes to evils like Saddam, Mullahs of Iran, Hitler, Milosevic.... WAR IS A LESSER EVIL and It is a necessary one.
As to why I asked you if you are American because you sounded like you know NOTHING about the American politics and how that country is being run.
First of all, Bush doesn't equal war. Bush is the president of a democratic country that has to go to war even democratically through the congress of the US.
I do see Pres. Bush as some one who means what he says. He means it when he says he supports the aspirations of the Iranian people to have a democratic state.
And I personally don't think Pres. Bush is going to war with Iran. Both Condi Rice and Bush have said that Iran is not Iraq and the case here is different. It matters whom you believe, "Seymour Hersh the fossil" or the "President of the US"
Bush is not the greatest president ever but he is one of the greatest POTUS on a list where Pres. Reagan, Nixon, Truman, Eisenhower, Roosevelt are, and HISTORY will judge him. he will always be remembered for liberating two countries and supporting others to be free. What s wrong with freedom?
He has had a very difficult presidency. His administration took power when Clinton did ruin the US through 8 years of Liberal/Democratic governance and the whole American economy was on the path of recession in 1999-2000. He had to go through Sep.11th attacks, removing the Taliban in Afghanistan, dealing with North Korea, dealing with terrorism at home and abroad, convincing the pathetic democratic party on home issues, then it came the threat of Saddam and WMDs which wasn't his fault at all.
As to what happened to his WMD case, I'd say he was given the same intel as others had been given, however, I am seeing that documents on Saddam activities is being translated for public use and they show that Saddam was about to restart his WMD projects.
You can read about this here
Freedom is what you have and allow you to criticize him. If you really want to feel how freedom is, take a trip to North Korea or Iran or even Syria. There you will appreciate the very freedom you have taken for granted here in Canada.
Saddam manipulated the corrupt UN for 13 long years, massacred his own people, waged two wars on his neighbors and was a bad man. He HAD TO BE REMOVED the way he came to power. He had WMDs, he used them and he would use them agains if he was given the chance to do so.
Bush was so brave to commit troops and money to remove this evil and I appreciate him very much. I wonder if you support saddam against him.
If you really care about Iraqi or Iranian or afghan people, you should support them in gaining the freedom and democracy. Your heart may be in the right place but what you do is to give support to terrorists like Zarqawi or Mullahs of Iran or Talibans.
I am not a Canadian by birth, but I am ready to volunteer to go to Afghanistan and help the Canadian troops as best as I can. Because I know what they stand for and it is the FREEDOM of bunch of innocent people from the evil of Taliban. The same Taliban who beat women in public and kill others who wants to live as a free man. Ask yourself: Do you want the same thing for yourself or your family and friends?
Any ways, it is important for you to separate issues from each other and do not take an emotional step towards what is happening in Iraq.
In Iraq today, Americans do not KILL people, those who are supported by regimes of Iran or Syria are trying desperately to wage a civil war in Iraq so the Americans leave and that they can rule the Iraqis. They want a mad man like Saddam to be back.
Stop hating Bush, Start fighting those who really kill innocent people in Iraq, Torture and Jail people in Iran and resist the idea of the FREE MAN.
If you westerners don't come to your senses in your scattered fight against the evil of Islamic radicalism and terrorism, you will fail yourself, your past generations and your children and grand children because the Radical Islamists hate YOU for your freedom and for the way you live.
They cant stand you being free!
Long talk cut short, but you seem to be some one who knows little about the world he lives in and what you know is based on emotions not necessarily Logic and Mentality.
BTW, if you are in Canada, stop watching CNN or CBC and start thinking for a second about what is really wrong in our world. Who is the bad guy here: President Bush or those who deliberately kill women and children in Iraq or Afghanistan.
