many of the more discerning people in America are wondering why
we seem unable to come up with any real reason to attack Iraq. I
determined it was time for me to take a shot at it. After all, it
is foolish to go to war unless there are some pretty compelling

Since our government has determined that it is the Iraqis who are
our enemies than obviously it must have been them who are responsible
for this list. After reading this list of atrocious acts you'll
understand the need for immediate action lest we lose our remaining
freedoms! Like Mr. Bush said, it's freedom itself that is under

- The Iraqi

inmates are routinely raped, beaten and even murdered while
many are convicted of only minor offenses.

terrorists who threaten his regime, and we (who hate Al Queda)
must destroy him together with our Turkish allies (who hate
the Kurds). After all, it is rude of Saddam to interfere in
most compelling reason to attack Iraq remains the most hilarious:
if we don't, he will, at some unspecified time, obtain weapons with
which he may harm the US or our client state, Israel. A brilliant
use of logic this one — it gives our leaders carte blanche to attack
virtually anyone, any time.
that was the logic used by the Beltway Sniper — after all, anyone
in the neighborhood could ultimately become a threat — best to just
shoot ‘em all and let God sort it out. Right?
note for public school graduates: the above list details actions
that are / were certainly criminal and deplorable, but none of them
