    yeah the same goes for you .... if you are so biased that you don't want to listen what others are saying and you totally discredit them then this is brain washing .... lots of lots of things will be said from both sides ... and some of them will be later come out to be false ... just like i heared today that some iraqi official(i guess prime minister, or vice president ... tariq aziz is the name coming to my mind) had defected and had gone to northern iraq ... which i guess is proved to be wrong EDIT: correct me if i am wrong

    Look, take me for whatever you want, but I highly encourage you to read threads I'm involved in first.

    You will discover some interesting things about me. Firstly I am not pro-war, I am pro-troops and pro-America...which happens to be at war.

    Secondly, you will find that my range of sources are highly international. I use US sources as often as I use British and European sources.

    Thirdly, I am only mildly hawkish. Like I said, I am not pro-war but I am anti-Saddam and I don't trust him one bit.

    Fourthly, I give everyone the benefit of the doubt and I only get nasty when people start being rhetorical and spewing crap that is uncorroborated and completely untrue as if it is.

    Now, you can call me brainwashed if you want. That really doesn't bother me. My actions say otherwise though and I'll let them do the talking. You haven't participated long enough in these debates to have any idea where I come from, so I encourage you not to make a fool of yourself by speaking of things of which you know not of.

    Capeche?

    Tariq Aziz was a rumor and I knew it 2 days ago when I saw the report for the first time. How? I corroborate sources.

    but that is the reason of this war, I mean, Bush said Irak is dangerous for US. If they don't have any of those weapons, then why the attack?

    well the only sources i am using right are same as yours .... CNN, BBC, FOX, Sky and some local channels coz these are the only channels available here ... so all i was saying that just don't discredit their side of the story .... i believe that right now everyone is trying to win the race os the moment they get a news it goes on air ... so we should wait for some time before believing anything .... i guess now you understand my point

    well not posting enough doesn't mean that i don't read .... i have been a member for more than a year now ....

    and could you please tell me the difference between not a pro-war and pro-troops ... coz eventually you are supporting the actions of troops which is killing civilians ... and i am as much anti-sadam but how can you justify thousand lives just to get rid of a regime .... where CIA is a specialist in arranging revolts and overthrowing regimes ... i hope that i don't need to give source for this

    EDIT: whats the meaning of Capeche ... i could not find it in dictionary.com

    its quite late here so me going to sleep now ... c ya guys tomorrow .. ta ta

    his,

    I mean I wanted the UN to approve the war and not just have the US go it alone.

    But since they are going it alone, and there's 250,000 troops over there who may or may not want to be there, but are there because the Commander-in-Chief has called on them, I'm standing behind them. They don't need to feel like their country isn't supporting them or we'll have another Vietnam due to low morale. Low morale causes more loss of life because in the view of the soldiers, they don't care - their country hates 'em anyways.

    I don't want to see that happen. I have family in the Gulf right now as well as friends. When they left for war, they knew I didn't approve the war, but they knew that I stood behind them.

    Is that clearer?

    ADDED: I believe there is a time and a place for debate and for arguing. That imte is before and after conflict. When bombs are falling, my opinion is that protesters mute criticism and demonstrate a united front.

    He needed some sort of justification for the invasion. So far it seems Iraq has none of the weapons tthat the USA claimed it did.

    So far...

    the only truth is Bush doesn't have the right to attack Irak. Where are the proofs and where is UN?

    The UN is doing what they do best... They are developing committees to pass resolutions that will never be acted upon because it doesn't want to offend anyone.

    We have every right to attack Iraq. He violated the UN's resoltuions from 1991. Everything else after that is just gravy.

    The legalities of the attack are stiffly under debate, even if you include all the resolutions. That's something history alone will decide.

    This is a terrible time for UN, if we start to act separately then the world would become a chaos. Any country now could take Us example and attack any other country without showing proofs.

    Sorry but I'm afraid you don't understand UN's resolutions, if Irak did violated it then it should be the UN not US alone who have the right to attack them.

    Well that is just perspective. From Bush's point of view (IMO):

    - Iraq dissagreed with UN, so we will attack them
    - I want cheaper oil
    - I must loberate the people, even if a dozen or so more thousand people have to die
    - where's daddy

    You're right. Now, try explaining that to France.
