Powell the Pacifist

I have heard dozens of reasons given for the "Bomb Saddam" war. The
airwaves and talking heads are full of propaganda, spin and reasoning for
why events are unfolding as they are. Lets look at what its not about.
At the root of it all it is not about oil. Thanks to the Russians and the
Saudis we have all that we need and then some. If anything, the Germans
and the French have played the politics of petroleum, not the United

It is not about UN resolutions. Seventeen have been violated in the last
dozen years by Iraq and know one has really cared.

It is not about weapons inspectors. Saddam threw them out years ago and
now that they are back it is simply a game of cat and mouse. There have
been no thorough searches of the massive presidential complexes or visits
to the vast underground bases and secret military facilities disguised as
hospitals and mosques that are all known to exist.

It is not about "freeing Iraq" and liberating its oppressed minorities or
persecuted peoples. Twenty years of slaughter, torture, rape and pillage
has hardly moved the world to come to the rescue. After the first Gulf
War both Colin Powell and George Bush the First exhorted the people of
Iraq to overthrow their dictator. But no help was given, the tide turned,
and vicious revenge and the slaughter of tens of thousands by Saddam
happened within sight and sound of American troops.

It is not about the majority of the weapons of mass destruction. Iran,
Syria, Libya and many other less-than-friendly nations actively seek or
already have the same chemical and biological weapons Iraq has
manufactured and used.

What this war is really about is the ultimate weapon of mass destruction
- the nuclear bomb.

More pointedly, the reason for the fevered attempts to acquire or produce
one is to fulfill the dream of creating the "Arab bomb" or in the case of
the Iranians the "Islamic bomb". Each of the leaders of the Middle East
seeks to become the leader of that part of the world. From Libyas
Khadafi to the mullahs of Iran to Saddam Hussein of Iraq each of these
megalomaniacs seeks to unify the Arab and/or Islamic world behind them
politically and militarily. They seek to follow the footsteps of Mohammed
by challenging the West and its offspring, the modern nation of Israel.

To reunite the Arab and Islamic world under one banner and one leader has
been the dream from the Caliphs to Nasser. For in Islamic terms there is
only the world that has been conquered by Islam and the world that has
yet to be conquered by Islam. Fueled by their hatred of the Jews and
Israel as well as their frustration with the power, prestige and
dominance of the Western world, they seek a way to stand up and
successfully reclaim the prestige and power that they once had. The
acquisition of nuclear weapons is seen as the way to accomplish this goal
of Arab/Islamic unity and power and the assertion of their proper place
in the modern world.

This scenario is widely feared by the West, and as we can see great
strides are being taken to prevent that dream from becoming reality.
Thanks to the policies of the last administration with regard to North Korea
we are facing the ugly potential of nuclear blackmail. It is the
nightmare scenario come true. Thankfully, North Korea has no fellow nations
to rally or worldwide agenda to wage. But the Arabic and Islamic world

There are reasons the nations of Iraq, Iran and North Korea are labeled
the Axis of Evil by our President. These three nations have funded,
trained, equipped, supported and encouraged terrorists of all stripes and
ideologies in their shadow war against the West. Each has achieved, or is
frantically attempting to achieve, the production of the "great
equalizer" against Western civilization, the nuclear bomb. North Korea is
believed to actually have at least one or two. Iraq and Iran are both
frighteningly close. The United States and its true allies have decided
that Iraq is the first to be stopped from achieving a weapon that could
actually cause massive destruction in their homelands.

So, despite the rhetoric and protests, this is a war that is both
necessary and important. The events of 9-11 have shown the mettle and
hatred possessed by our enemies. Now is the time to show our might with
the conviction that we are in the right.

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

- President Ronald Reagan

 ”I will not cede more power to the state. I will not willingly cede more power to anyone, not to the state, not to General Motors, not to the CIO. I will hoard my power like a miser, resisting every effort to drain it away from me. I will then use my power, as I see fit. I mean to live my life an obedient man, but obedient to God, subservient to the wisdom of my ancestors; never to the authority of political truths arrived at yesterday at the voting booth. That is a program of sorts, is it not? It is certainly program enough to keep conservatives busy, and Liberals at bay. And the nation free.”

—William F. Buckley Jr.

"Liberals want to regulate just about everything: where we live, what fuels we use, what car we drive, whether we can drive or be forced to use government mass transit, where we send our kids to school, what doctor we see, and even to what extent we express our approval or disapproval of others’ lifestyles. It’s hard to find something liberals don’t want to regulate. Is that a world you want to live in?” 

"At such a time in history, we who are free must proclaim anew our faith. This faith is the abiding creed of our fathers. It is our faith in the deathless dignity of man, governed by eternal moral and natural laws. This faith defines our full view of life. It establishes, beyond debate, those gifts of the Creator that are man’s inalienable rights, and that make all men equal in His sight. "

Dwight D. Eisenhower

"And if we elect a government that subverts or weakens or ends our war against terrorism, we can count on this: We will soon face enemies that will make 9/11 look like stubbing our toe, and they will attack us with the confidence and determination that come from knowing that we don’t have the will to sustain a war all the way to the end."

- Orson Scott Card

"In response to skyrocketing gas prices, liberals say, practically in unison, 'We can’t drill our way out of this crisis.”' What does that mean? This is like telling a starving man, 'You can’t eat your way out of being hungry!'  'You can’t water your way out of drought!' 'You can’t sleep your way out of tiredness!' 'You can’t drink yourself out of dehydration!' Seriously, what does it mean? Finding more oil isn’t going to increase the supply of oil? It is the typical Democratic strategy to babble meaningless slogans, as if they have a plan. Their plan is: the permanent twilight of the human race. "

-Ann Coulter

"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."
-Samuel Adams
