Have you thought that the uprisings were from some of the minorities groups which are not the majority of the people will?Originally posted by: Thraxen
You are totally ignoring the fact that the people of Iraq are in no position to to decide for themselves. Every past rebellion has been put down with brutal violence.What you are trying to say is that we know better, therefore we impose our value on those that can?t make the decision for themselves
After the Brits created the Middle East they just lump many despot tribes into a country with one ruler, which causes unrest since day one.
After the US overthrown Saddam dictatorship, who (which tribe) is going to run the country & dictate their value over other tribes?
Democracy also mean that the govern body is elected by the people, not by the appointment of a foreign group such as the US.
Also, is the US going to spread its good will to other countries & liberate the people from their oppressors, and just to name a few such as Cambodia, Laos, Indonesia, Pakistan, Chile, Columbia, Bolivia, Brazil, Saudi Arabia, and China?
So far the US position is weak on this instant, because there is no smoking gun to be found, and using the ?Democracy? as a reason for war is hypocrisy thing I ever heard.
It doesn't matter how much your spin doctor is trying to pedal this war, because it seemed to be more and more about money for your administration & their buddies.
Just keep lying to yourself that your government is doing the right thing, and throw yourself in the line of fire just so a few of the rich can benefit from your friend & family blood.
