One funny thing about this sight is it not only shows how mind blowingly ignorent you war mongers are, but how you feed off bullshit corperate tabloid media for all yer bullshit information. If you wanted to see the truth about why we are going to kill thousands of innocent iraqi's you would go to www.newamericancentury.org/RebuildingAmericasDefenses.pdf
The docuement realeased by PNAC - whose members include, Chenney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, and Jeb Bush - proves that the war was planned before Bush was even elected and has nothing to do with inspections at all. It also states that in order to achieve such a war, what America needs is "some catastrophic and catalysing event - like a new Pearl Harbor" so yeah, they wanted a 9/ll.
But... of coarse you don't want the truth! You would rather put you're hands over yer ears and sing "God Bless America!" at the top of yer lungs. I fucking dare you to research that information, but you're probubly too scared of what you might find out.

Did you even read the document you referenced? It talks about the state of the military and the need for modernizing and reconfiguring the military in the face of the current world situation. Regarding these changes they say:

"Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor."

That hardly sounds like they were hoping for a 9/11. Does the document include planning for a war? Yes, in a general way. It's about military preparedness so of course they're going to speculate about potential conflicts. Regarding Iraq they say we should increase our troops in Kuwait, not to invade Iraq but to deter a repeat invasion of Kuwait.

It's quite clear that this report is a broad overview of the changes that will need to take place for the American military to remain an effective force for the forseeable future, not a blueprint for a blood-for-oil war.

Personally, I only rely on the tabloid media for information about celebrities. Unlike those celebrities, I seek out as much information as I can about the Iraq situation and make my judgements based on that.

And he can't even spell. It's "course," not "coarse," and "you're," not "yer." Ignorant yob.

And, that's "ignorant," not "ignorent." Jeez. Don't they offer somethng besides Qu'ran classes in prison these days?

I don't find their words confusing, but I can see where that might be a problem for you.

The doctrine of being able to fight and win multiple simultaneous wars is not new to Bush, it's been in effect for many years. Note that the ability to fight multiple wars does NOT mean multiple wars are planned. If you have to fight a war in Iraq you don't want the Chinese invading Taiwan or the North Koreans invading Seoul or nuking Tokyo because you're unable to respond.

Yes, even if Saddam is gone we'll still have to contend with Saudi Arabia, Iran, Syria, Somalia, etc. I don't think anyone is claiming that removal of Saddam will immediately result in a peaceful Gulf region but if we manage to get a stable democracy in Iraq it's a good start. That means we can withdraw our troops from Saudi Arabia, which you may recall was one of bin Laden's biggest beefs against us. It also ensures a stable oil supply so we can then get tough with the Saudis over their support of radical Islam. So yes, it's about oil in that respect. We're not going to steal it, we're going to pay a fair market price for it.

And you're right, it's not about inspections either. The Bush administration knew Saddam would use inspections to jerk everyone around and stall for time, just like he always has. We all know Saddam hasn't cooperated, hasn't disarmed, he's a brutal tyrant that has children tortured in front of their parents and women raped in front of their husbands, he gassed thousands of Kurds and Iranian soldiers and he continues to pursue a nuclear weapon so he can take over the other Gulf states. Whether or not he explicitly supports Al Qaeda, there's no disputing that Saddam has supported terrorism for decades.

All these reasons are why we're going to war, not because we want to set up some kind of American Empire with Emporer George W. ruling the world. That's just asinine.

Darn it! I wrote all that in response to a post that was deleted. I need to write faster :)

I saved the comment for future... use. But I deleted it off the comments because I don't feel like having blogroach poop everywhere. It was foule-mouthed and uninteresting. Basically you can figure out what "andrew" said from Anthony's reply.

Ghandi once said: I will die for the cause I believe in but I will not kill for my cause.
The way you judge, will determine how you will be jusdged. The Bible said forgive and forget, Bush the idiot that he is says: "We will not forgive and we will not forget."

I believe that settles that.

Well, "Steven," I guess you thought you were very clever posting as "Shaun" also. I have removed "Shaun's" comment because it was useless and pointless. I have banned your IP (that's how I know you were also "Shaun"). I do not debate with people whose idea of an intellect argument is to call George Bush an idiot. Now get off the computer before I call your parents.
