First of all let me again applaud the courage of the US administration, the US soldiers present in Iraq and for the US public who have shown a rather supportive attitude towards the spread of the freedom doctrine put in place by the Bush team. The liberation of Iraq (and Afghanistan) is a vital ingredient for a more secure world. Contrary to what has been said in the media, the vast majority of European Nations supported this liberation, including all the new East European countries. France, Germany and Belgium were the only ones really opposing the war. The left leaning German government did not support the war because of a domestic election issue. However the rightwing CDU party is strongly on its way back, and will most certainly win the imminent upcoming elections. The CDU has always showed it support for the liberation of Iraq.
In France Chirac is on his way out too. According to French polls he is right now the least popular president in French history; only 28 % of the people want him reelected? Instead we are awaiting a new president (in less than 2 years). His name is Nicolas Sarkozy, extremely popular among the French. He has been very critical of Chirac?s egocentric policies. Sarkozy has proven on several occasions that he is a strong supporter of close transatlantic ties. The media in France has nicknamed him ?Sarkozy l?Americain?, that should say something about his US-friendly policies. He has repeatedly traveled to the US in order to ?prepare for the future? as he says, and every time America welcomed him with open arms. He supported full heartedly the removal of Saddam Hussein?s bath party regime. The president of ?Medecins sans Frontiers? (Doctors without Borders) is also a strong supporter of the war that ousted Hussein.
Clearly, the future relations between France and the USA look very promising, indeed just as good as they were in the ?good old days? when France gave a decisive help to the US in its quest for independence, and later when France gave the Statue of Liberty to the American people to show France?s gratitude over the American ideology of freedom.
IRAQ: Contrary to what mostly liberal media is saying, let?s not forget that the US has in fact already won in Iraq, the war is over, mission accomplished! Indeed, Saddam Hussein?s regime was vanquished in 21 days, he was thrown out and is now in prison? including the nearly 50 high profile people of his administration! The famous deck of cards? The goal of the war was first of all: Regime Change. The WMD issue was not the main goal, it was just one among many, Congress?s Iraqi war Resolution proves it. There are literally dozens of highly important points Iraq was in total material breach with, and it?s all stated in that resolution. The resolution went far beyond the WMD issue alone. Strangely media is failing to report that for a reason. Here is the Iraq war resolution republicans and democrats voted overwhelmingly for, it became public law the very minute Bush signed it: www.yourcongress.com . . .
The war resolution even mentioned the Iraq Liberation Act signed by Clinton in 1998! Clinton wanted regime change in Iraq as well! Link: en.wikipedia.org . . .
Concerning Iraq?s WMD?s they were moved to Syria: read what David Kay said. He was the former head of the coalition's hunt for Iraq's weapons of mass destruction. Link : www.telegraph.co.uk . . .
So, the war against Saddam?s regime is over, the US won in 21 days. Now we are fighting another war, it?s a different one. It?s a war that started a long time ago, way before the liberation of Iraq or Afghanistan. This ?other? war is ongoing and it probably will take a decade before we start seeing some positive results? this must be known and accepted by the public or we might loose. Patience is our greatest weapon. France has received high-level terrorist threats during past several months based not only on its passed war against Islamic fanatics in Algeria, for its troops at war against the Talibans in Afghanistan today, but also simply because France is sill resisting the? islamisation? of its own country.
In Afghanistan the French troops are fighting hand in hand with US troops against remaining Talibans as we speak. They are under US command. Al Qaeda knows this more than well. Thus, France is again preparing itself for another wave of terror on its soil. Chirac?s plan of evading terrorist attacks in France by not supporting the Iraq war was irresponsible, and as we now can conclude, it didn?t work at all.
There are powerful factions of Islam who?s only goal and policy is an international expansion of the Islamic religion, Al Qaeda has officially stated that all along. As long as the world is not entirely Islamic the war will continue, according to that terrorist organization.
Waging war against fanatics in Afghanistan and Iraq is certainly better than nothing, but clearly, the future will prove to us: that effort is not quite enough. The fight against Islamic fascism has barely started. 5000 robot like fanatics are being ?produced? in so called ?Madrassas? every year in Pakistan alone. Those ?robots? are students in hardcore radical Islam ready to explode them selves on a simple order.
The good point for being in Afghanistan and Iraq today is evident: it gives us the possibility of installing permanent military bases there, in order to have a ?last line of defense? in the coming future. It also hinders a massive Chinese investment in the region, which right before the war was literally overtaking the place. Gratefully that now has changed as well.
So, the war against Saddam?s regime is over, the US won in 21 days
Hmmm...the US military managed to take out the government of a third world country that had been starved and ruined for 14 years, had an army comparable in strength to the Hare Krishnas, the bulk of which didn't even bother fighting...
Yeah, good work studs. We're all real impressed.
The goal of the war was first of all: Regime Change.
Nope. When Colin Powell went to make his case to the UN he talked about WMD not regime change. Regime change is explicitly illegal under international law. That's the whole reason why WMD were made the focal point of the propaganda campaign.
Strangely media is failing to report that for a reason. Here is the Iraq war resolution republicans and democrats voted overwhelmingly for, it became public law the very minute Bush signed it
Er yeah - the people who launched the war voted in favour of it. Is anyone amazed by that?
The important point is the UN utterly rejected it.
As long as the world is not entirely Islamic the war will continue, according to that terrorist organization.
Could you link me to Bin Laden saying this? I've only heard him cite the invasion of Iraq, Afghanistan and Palestine in his videos.
