Possible alternative to war
    #1400864 - 03/22/03 04:12 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

I realize that since the war has already started that arguing about alternatives is pretty futile, but I was thinking about a possible alternative to war. Instead of invading, what if we just had the CIA arm and train the Iraqi people to overthrow Saddam's regime. This tactic has worked for us in several Latin American countries, so why wouldn't it work in the Middle East?

Let me get this straight. Now, you're saying we should have armed the araqi people to fight against their leader. Doesn't this totally go against your other argument that we shouldn't have given arms to them back in the 80's? Say the civilians lose, which I'm sure they would considering iraqs army would have a considerable amount more arms than then them and would not go against his word for fear of their wives and daughters getting raped and pillaged, who then would be in control of all those supplied arms? Interesting idea, but having it work would be a miracle.

Or maybe ... just maybe... Bush and Saddam could sit down and have a discussion about the whole problems between them two. Maybe they could communicate and think of a solution. I dont know that just seems like the most grown-up thing to do here now.

Its funny but it sounds like something that would never happen in a million years, but, Im serious.

Yeah, lets negotiate with someone who will not negotiate in good faith. We negotiated a cease fire it you remember and he never kept his side of that deal.

But at least some one anti-war is finaly trying to come up with a viable alternative. way to late but at least it is something.

It we would have included a deadline in the cease fire agreement we could have finished this long ago.

Be all and you'll be to end all
