something ive been writing and stopping and writing...i know there are a bunch of grammatical errors but i dont have word and im to lazy to hit shift to capitalize my i's and whatever else. I'd like some ideas and stuff so i can make it better. i know the ending is weak, i just slapped it together so i could put it on here and get some feedback.thanks, XXXadam
I need some insight. I didn't live in the world war II era but i find it hard to believe there was any opposition to the war. No one likes war, but in some instances it's the only resolve. We were blatently and obviously attacked in december of 1942 by the Japanese. These attacks were carried out on American soil. I dont think theres any need for clarification there, following that day we declared war and sought to make justice for such an abomination. We likewise declared war on the German nazi war machine and the Italians facist party in the European theatre. Who hadn't blatently and obviously attacked us but supported and allied with the Japanese. Also bearing in mind the terrorist acts being commited in europe such as ethnic cleansing and genocide. With this established fast forward to 2001. Now 9 months and 11days later we are again blatently and obviously attacked, on American soil. This time we are struck at 4 different locations. Two towers, formerly known as the world trade center, the pentagon, and a plane believed to be en route to the white house crashes-killing all passengers. Thousands of innocent citizens died this day. Now the days thereafter, until now, and into the future are sided.
Etching closer and closer to elections, one of the biggest topics in choosing a president is Operation Iraqi Freedom. I am perplexed as to how many of my fellow citizens don't agree with the war and believe its not our place to be. Do these people believe we should have not fought in World War II as well? Yes there are differences between the two attacks, but there are to many similiarites not to compare the two.
Pearl Harbor was an attack at a military installment, conducted by a military, aimed to weaken the United States naval capability to wage war. The casualties reached 2, 280 soldiers and 68 civilians. The attacks on 9/11/01 were not all aimed at military installations. The pentagon works alot with the military, but the most horrific of the attacks were directed at the world trade center. The world trade center is not a military installation but rather an economic center. These attacks were conducted by terrorists. They are an international group of militants, i see no major difference between this kind of military and a country's standing military except their cause is hate and radical faith as opposed to defense of a homeland. The death toll on September 11th, 2001 exceeds 3,000.
We knew the Axis powers didnt like us, just as we know that al-queda and similar groups hate America. We waited for Pearl Harbor to happen before we took action. All the while axis powers swept across innocent countries and the Nazi's began their ethnic cleansing campaign. Now 9/11/01 has happened in my generation and we have taken immediate action. Action to completely reform our government and homeland security as well as an offensive effort in the middle east and around the world to eliminate terror cells abroad. Iraq is a terrorist state, and harbors militants and militant groups. We have already captured the 5 most wanted men in Iraq from the pentagons most wanted list. As well as some 75% of others wanted. We fought the Axis powers in many other countries than there own. Africa, Europe, and many Pacific Islands. During the 1940's I found little information about Americans rallying against the war, and fighting the enemy abroad. Yet today many Americans oppose the war, which is an American's right. I'm baffled though as to why. I hear their answers to my question but I can only think to myself that they are still living on September 10, 2001.

Ok, so i dont want to hear anymore about Health Insurance and how Bush is doing it all wrong. Its not the easiest decision in the world. Honestly, it would be nice to have everyone covered, but thats just not reality.
Kerry wants to cover some odd million more people with his plan, yeah...good idea. Too bad no one mentions that "his plan would cost taxpayers $653 billion over 10 years. Other estimates put the cost at double that or more."
Im all for helping the poor, but who does he think he is? Freakin Robin Hood?? Kerry says he would pay for it by rolling back tax cuts for people with incomes of more than $200,000 a year. Yeah, so we are gonna help poor people sooo much that they'll become rich and complain that their taxes are higher than before?
At least with a percentage tax we cant all complain about how "She got taxed less than me!" like little whiney kids.
Bush proposes a compromise. He'll help out more than before, but it wont cost us as much. He plans to extend coverage to 11 million, and perhaps as many as 17 million, people at a cost of $100 billion to $150 billion. Thats a steal in comparison to $650 billion, wouldnt you say? Current Mood: thoughtful

gotta love the kid.
xBLEEDINGCHAOSx: im totally with you and i say FUCK KERRY im voting this year and you better fucking believe im marking BUSH.
CURRENT EVENT: student suspended for wearing another countries flag. CAN I GET A WITNESS? HALLELUJA!
Believe me im all about heritage, but i believe whole-heartedly that you should fly this flag above all.
1). Weapons Of Mass Destruction
We can argue all day about the alleged WMDs which were in Iraq before the invasion. Hans Blix has noted some of Iraq's WMD was destroyed in 1998 and 2001. Others have hard evidence that the WMD are in Syria. We cannot say “for certain” where those elusive stockpiles of WMD have gone.
We do know Saddam Hussein had an interest in weapons of mass destruction in the past. (See: Iraq-Iran War, Gulf War 1, Operation Desert Fox.) To even asseverate the world isn't “safer without Saddam” and “this war wasn't justified” is incredibly inaccurate and ignorant, as Saddam still possessed the ability to create more WMD in the future.
It's funny how leftists wish to implement a new system of gun control where criminals are persecuted and never allowed to have a gun again, yet put a plethora of trust in criminals of humanity (such as Saddam) to never again create WMDs. While I do agree with the left's idea of banishing weapons from known felons, the same should apply to evil dictators. I mean, WMDs can kill more people than a gun. Would these anti-war folks rather hand Saddam the gun again, giving him another chance, or would they rather nip the problem in the bud vis-a-vis gun control? By granting Saddam the ability to stay in power is the same thing as giving felons a loaded gun.
2). Ties With Terror
One of the biggest problems with the Bush administration is their lack of speaking about the terrorist activity in Iraq pre-Operation Iraqi Freedom. The case for war can be pressed through terrorist links since the US had just fought a war against the Taliban; a government built on the foundation of terrorism.
Since you can click on the link I provided above to see the entire list of terrorists (dated 2001) and their locations, backgrounds, etc; I will only provide names of the terrorist groups which operated in Iraq here.
1). Palestine Liberation Front (PLF) - “Receives support mainly from Iraq. Has received support from Libya in the past.”
2). Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MEK or MKO) - “Beyond support from Iraq, the MEK uses front organizations to solicit contributions from expatriate Iranian communities.”
3). Abu Nidal organization (ANO) “Has received considerable support, including safehaven, training, logistic assistance, and financial aid from Iraq, Libya, and Syria (until 1987), in addition to close support for selected operations.”
Three terrorist groups have worked in Iraq before the US-led invasion. That tid-bit of knowledge alone gave us reason to overthrow Saddam Hussein, however, the left will argue otherwise...
3). Saddam Was A Terrorist Himself
With one million lives lost in the Iraq-Iran War, two million lost through the use of secret police & starvation, along with ghostly/horrifying mass graves of unknown quantity; most of us have come to understand the nefarious acts Saddam's regime perpetuated over a 30 year period. Overthrowing Saddam's government was not only a national security issue but a humanitarian mission as well. In a period of one year, George Bush's administration has liberated 25 million people in Iraq alone (50 million if you include Afghanistan in the mixed bag of chips).
What better way to fight terrorism than taking out a terrorist himself? Saddam needed to go. The Allies accomplished this. Iraq may not be the “Rome built in a day” the left is looking for, but with Saddam out of the picture, surely Operation Iraqi Freedom is a solid, glorious victory for the entire world. http://weblogs.therightsociety.com/rob/archive/2004/05/30/1064.aspx
