The George Bush Iraq war Debate, what is the view over there?
George Bush jr. is determined to go to war against Iraq. I am against it. We have a war against enemies who have killed American Citizens en masse on September 11, 2001. It seems we have a long way to go fighting that war before it is over. Going to war against Iraq is,( to quote Omar Bradley when asked if we should invade China during the Korean War), “the wrong war against the wrong enemy at the wrong time”. To me it looks like Dubya wants to finish the war his daddy started. Well, his father should have finished that war properly, more to his shame that he did not. His father told the Kurds to rise up in rebellion, they did, we did nothing and the Kurds
were slaughtered. “Junior” has enough problems for his administration as it is. America has enough enemies who will attack us on our home soil and have done so with devastating effect in 2001. Let’s get them first, then we can worry about
a dictator who can’t manage to launch an attack against his neighbors, let alone The USA.
what’s the view of this in Australia? Because honestly i have not talked to american here under the age of 70 yet that supports his desire to blow up Iraq..

the real reason
the truth and real reasom behing georgies little thing with iraq is because of the economy..yes the american economy. remenber that he is not only intersted in the poltical ideals but also the ECONOMIC ideals of the american society…so where does all it lead…he did an econ degree….
WAR MAKES AN ECONOMY GROW
yes truth..truth…truth..it’s horrible but if u know your economics u know what i am saying is so true that i will bet all the 10 dollars that i have on it.

I don’t know what relation this has to the post, but I should say that Iraq isn’t governed by the holiest people in the world. Provisions to the people of Iraq have long been severed after the UN inspection team were denied their responsibilities or were given severe restrictions on how and where they conduction inspections in Iraq. Why are they limiting weapon inspections? You might argue that they are just exercising their rights not to have a third party probing every single detail of their country. But is it too short sighted to say that there might be something worth hiding? And even if they had arsenal to compete with the best, who’s to say that they are going to use it? Well given their past track record under the leadership of the current government, we might not give them the benefit of the doubt.
Anyway I don’t see what that has to do with Bev’s journal.
So, is this indoor rock climbing? or outdoor one?
Indoor one feels so safe… if a little lame. But I guess I’d be safer with screwed in rocks and a harness + spotter anyday 🙂 …. extreme sports aren’t my thing hehe… have fun!

I don’t think Iraq has much to do with rockclimbing either, but hey 🙂 It’s indoor climbing, ‘cos there are just no big cliff faces near us *lol*! And being a beginner, no way in hell am I going to do that – being indoors all strapped up is more my kinda thing 😛
