After reading up on the current situation of Bush and his administration wanting to bomb Iraq, I found an article that sums up a few good reasons not to do so:
# There is no legal justification for U.S. military action against Iraq
# Regional Allies are likely to widely oppose a U.S. attack
# There is no hard evidence of Iraqi links to Al Qaeda or other anti-American terrorists (although it is quite feasible)
# There is no firm proof that Iraq is developing weapons of mass destruction
# Iraq is no longer a significant military threat to its neighbors
# There are still nonmilitary options available
# Defeating Iraq would be militarily difficult
After years of questionable Iraqi elections, it would be refreshing with a breeze of democracy. If there is a non-military way of doing so that should be explored. If not, I’m 100% with Good ol’ G.W.’s song.
It goes to the tune of :
‘When you are happy and you know it ..clap your hands!’
If you cannot find osama, Bomb Iraq.
If the markets are a drama, Bomb Iraq.
If the terrorists are frisky,
Pakistan is looking shifty,
North Korea is too risky,
If we have no allies with us,Bomb Iraq.
If we think someone has ditched us, Bomb Iraq.
So to hell with the inspections,
Let’s look tough for the elections,
Close your mind and take directions,
It’s ‘Preemptive non-aggression’, Bomb Iraq.
Lets prevent this mass destruction, Bomb Iraq.
They’ve got weapons we cant see,
And thats good enough for me,
Coz its all the proof I need,
If you never were elected, Bomb Iraq.
If your mood is quite dejected, Bomb Iraq.
If you think Saddam has gone mad,
With the weapons that he had,
And he tried to kill your dad,
If your corporate fraud is growing, Bomb Iraq.
If your ties to it are showing, Bomb Iraq.
If your politics is sleazy,
And hiding it aint easy,
And your manhood’s getting queazy,
Fall in line and follow orders, Bomb Iraq.
For our might knows not our borders, Bomb Iraq.
Disagree? We call it treason,
Let’s make war not love this season,
Even if we have no reason,
