Does anyone think this is going to erupt into World War 3?

Do you honestly think after 9/11 that the terrorists aren't already targeting us war or not?. I'm sorry try and deny it as much as you want but this is part of the war on terrorism. Saddams regime supports and promotes terrorism and unfortunately has the capacity to produce and provide them with some very horrific WMDs. After 9/11 our country made a commitment to hunt down and destroy terrorists wherever they are to be found and not just osama and Al queda. This commitment includes countries that support, supply, harbor, or in any way give aid to terrorist organizations. That would include iraq and a good many of it's neighbors. As far as i am concerned the terrorism will continues until the countries that support and promote it are crushed.

So do you honestly think that there's not even a slight chance that Terrorist attacks will increaes? :) They already hate us, this war might make them hate us even more.

I don't think this will turn into world war, However once the war is done, if the US is left occupying Iraq for any length of time I predict a whole lot of suicide bombings etc, i mean let's review as to which two countries are the most hated by islamic people: 1. Israel 2. America. We already know what happens in Israel, why do we think it will be any different for the americans?

Why are you worried so much about your own hide? What have you done that the terrorists would even care about you? You are nothing, a pissant, a cockroach.

Besides, it is already a terrorists vs. USA war. So what could possibly change?

Thank you George W Bush for protecting me and my family, not to mention my country and all my fellow countrymen, from further terrorist attacks.

Eat that.

Thanks Bush for making the world hate me and want me dead just because I'm an American. Thanks for ruining the possibility of traveling the world without concern.

Most of the world has hated Americans for the last forty years. If you want to travel just don't wear Burkenstocks and Levi's. Learn the language. They will love you.

Unfortunately the only thing you may be eating are your own words. You are just as arrogant as GW.

Please tell me the last time anyone could travel the world without concern. I know from personal experience that it has not been possible for the last 30 years.

Do you *in your heart* believe that Saddam has NEVER financially, geographically or otherwise supported Terrorists who have struck US targets?
my "heart" doesn't believe one way or the other, it's too busy pumping blood :p i don't pretend to know either way, and i have not seen any evidence to support either claim.

The german FKK clubs are now starting to allow only locals. That's what I'm pissed about.

Well, it's their right. Too bad we don't fall to their level by having such a self-centered worldview.

In a World War, by definition, the world must be at war (or at least a good part of it). Those of you who think WW3 is coming can you please tell me which countries will be warring? I'd like to know.

During WW2 the sneaky Japanese worked all the way to Australia while the Germans made runs into Russia, Britian and Africa. It was a war of territorial conquest. Do you see that arising from this conflict?

I think you'd first need to see Islamic states band together in common cause against the West.

They hated us looooong before Bush came to office.

Remember, the first time they tried taking down the World Trade Center was in 1993, when Clinton was in office.

Our political correctness will be our downfall. While the Arab world's dislike of Westerners is perfectly accepted, if an American dislikes middle easterners he is shunned by his countryman and considered a racist. They will keep picking us apart because we're not allowed to stereotype, we have to throw out our common sense and have equal suspicion for everyone. As if a Chinese woman is as likely to hijack an airliner as a middle eastern man (which would explain ALL those planes hijacked by Chinese women...)

I say use common sense FIRST, and THEN try to be nice second.

Yeah....we were much better off doing nothing.
well, we certainly should not have done nothing, but sending 300,000 troops to invade an occupy iraq certainly wasn't up there on the bright ideas list.

::sigh:: where do you get this "occupation" crap from? A provisional gov't set up until they make their own is not "occupation," it's caretaking.

It seems to me that this seems to be headed the Vietnam direction -- we don't know who the enemy is, since they don't stand out in the open with their uniforms waiting to be shot down, hence we have to harass all the locals to figure out who is (checkpoints Israel style), locals use guerilla tactics, our forces wind up gunning down and arresting innocent people to try to stay alive --> more resentment, more suicide bomings etc.. If you look at some of the pictures it even actually looks like vietnam, sort of junglish.

I imagine if this war does stretch out and it doesn't end with a good outcome (like Iraqis dancing in the streets) we will have suicide bombers in the U.S.
