Well, while you guys are all sitting here reading about Liz and why you should stick frostbitten parts in COLD water NOT hot. (Damn, Liz…!).
Mike (aka Cooties) has been offering quite a well thought-out counterpoint to the impending Iraqi invasion… pulling up news links from Google about Bosnian/Yugoslavian arms dealers selling him some prime weapons of mass destruction.
Saddam, that is. Not Mike. I meant to write *Saddam* is getting these weapons. (I’m not sure why, but I feel we can *TRUST* the Brown family with a nuclear missle in their back yard. Just a gut feeling.)
He also reposted his 1996 essay: “Why Saddam must be removed”
Mike knows his stuff… there’s some really good discussion going on in that thread, that I don’t want to see getting lost…. and I think this is definitely one of those things where I think we need to know all of the facts before just jumping in to defend sweet little Saddam.
Ok, well, Saddam Hussein is a douchebag.
We all know that. That was never in question.
You don’t get the name “The Butcher of Baghdad” winning in a bake-off contest.
But my question is… why does the United States have to take out this piece of shit? Why go into a hotspot where an entire region already hates us for our interference and thinks Osama bin Laden is the bee’s knees for his actions against us?
Yes, U.N. Sanctions are a joke. Fine, he’ll probably have at least three nuclear warheads in the next few years… but he’s gonna test at *least ONE* on his own people, so that will leave him with two. Will they have the same hurling power as those piece-o-shit SCUD missles that he tried to lob on us in ’91?????
Sure, he’s a fuck. And few people in the world will miss him.
Just… why us? Why does the U.S. have to do it? That’s all I’m asking.
If I went around to everyone that *MIGHT* do something to my family someday, and simply punched them in the mouth for that reason….
….the tooth fairy would go bankrupt.
… and you would call me a paranoid nitwit.
These are the actions of a President with a tiny pecker, if you ask me.
