I just received 2 comments from what appears to be a sincere college student. I am assuming this student wants to hear the truth. I will present the truth here. The 2 comments are below, just as submitted:
Comment on #4: this argument is thought provoking, however, I disagree with the assumption that the U.S is the world police. The U.S is not the world police. The UN was created specifically to take the position of being the world police, and to form stability among nations. The U.S needs to let the UN do its job.

Comment on #3 : I think this argument is right about Saddam Hussein being a bad man , but I respectfully disagree with the assumption that Saddam Hussein’s evilness was the only reason the U.S took it upon itself to invade Iraq. There is also an assumption that the Iraq war had nothing to do with oil, when it is painfully obvious that it did have a lot to do with oil and the power to dominate. The Bush Administration drove us to believe that the war effort was promoting humanitarianism and was to remove threats, “WMD”, but the truth is Iraq pose no threat to the U.S because there was no WMD, and the attack was obviously for personal reasons hold by the Bush Administration. The U.S is not a world police. It is not our job to attack every country that has bad leadership, if that’s the case we need to be attacking our self for our bad leadership.

First of all, all of the quotes of my original post were made by the Clinton Administration and not President George W Bush. I will respond with another post and provide the source and date of each quote.
Regarding the United Nations and the US playing the role of police: Just as in World War II, the US has had to come to the rescue of the world. The United Nations failed to perform it’s duty to deal with Saddam Hussein. Why did this occur? Fundamentally because France, Germany and Russia were “in bed” with him financially. As you now know, the Clinton Administration considered Saddam Hussein a serious threat and were prepared to take action against him.
Here is my answer to the second comment. Once again, you responded to comment #3 of my post which also was a Clinton Administration quote. Saddam Hussein used WMD on multiple occasions against Iran and his own people. There is absolutely no proof that he did not have them when we invaded or that he was not producing them. Saddam Hussein was a very evil man who was capable of doing anything that he was not stopped from doing. He murdred hundreds of his own people, invaded Kuwait, destroyed the habitat of people in the southern part of Iraq and raped and tortured many others.
I would like to know where you got your informatiom. Was it the media, your teachers, your friends? I hope that you will follow up on this and seek the facts and the truth. Also, read 1984 by George Orwell or reread it. Pay particular attention to doublespeak. If you have any questions or comments, please respond.
