Should We Be Fighting This War? Feedback

Should We Be Fighting This War? Feedback - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006

As the war against Iraq is underway, were asking what you think about the most recent conflict in the middle east. Should we be fighting a war? Are the United States, Britain, Spain and Portugal just in their crusade against Saddam Hussein? You decide! -

On March 17th, George W. Bush gave Saddam Hussein 48 hours to leave Iraq, or face invasion. Since then, the United States has begun its attack. Tell us what you think about the war waging in Iraq!

1 I think we should have a war. Everybody thinks everything will get resolved if we just try and work it out nicely and blah blah blah. That's never gonna happen! We should show our strength. We don't have to attack innocent people, we can just attack the biological or nuclear plants. We have proof (September 11,) that the Al Qaeda members mean business. If we don't step up to the plate and fight, they'll think we are weak and will attack us more. We owe it to the REAL heroes (all those who died in the September 11th attacks,) to fight. What about all the children that lost their parents and friends on September 11th? We owe it to them! Unless, for some odd reason, Osama, Saddam, and all the other Al Qaeda members back down, I say YES to war.

1 I think we should not go to war because it could effect family lives and effect going to work and business. If Saddam doesn't step down, there is no telling what could happen.

1 What is faeriequeen_91 talking about? Are you stupid? You think if they only want to attack the nuclear and biological plants that they need the armed forces of 30 of the world's strongest countries? Pretty stupid, huh? And what is the "proof" that the Al Qaeda members mean business? You only know what you see on CNN. And that's crap. Bin Laden is nothing - how do you expect him to devise such a brilliant plan to attack the WTC. And outsmart the CIA? Pretty weird, considering that he was actually TRAINED BY AMERICANS! It was just an excuse to attack Afghanistan. Now they control the country and have instant access to the Chinese, Pakistani and Indian borders. The same is going on with Iraq. You think Saddam Hussein is really their target? Then how come the first thing they did was take control of the oil? You think that to get ONE MAN, they need 225,000 land troops, in addition to weapons and planes worth 95 billion dollars? I don't think so. And who are those "heroes?" They may be, but how many were there? 2,000? 3,000? What about the 8,000 Muslims killed in the Bosnian war? The millions killed as a result of the Gulf War? The millions of Iraqis dying of cancer and other diseases because of the first Bush's weapons? The thousands being killed in Palestine? Aren't those heroes? Sorry faeriequeen_91, but unless you get your facts straight your gonna sound pretty ignorant.

    On a "normal" person, Polygraphs have a 70%-90% success rate. Now, the problem is that a lot of people aren't "normal". Some people are naturally anxious or have an anxiety disorder, which can mess up the results. Obese people often tend to sweat more, which will give the sensors bad readings.  So, is it a good tool for finding the truth? In certain circumstances, yes. Is it enough to convict someone of a crime? No.  ^^This There are so many variables, it's hard to make sure polygraphs are working to model standards.

    wow this topic is rarely spoken, thanks for sharing it!! [s:p/zxl] 8) 8) Thank you for reading! I think as days go by it gets more and more talked about, but I don't think there can ever be enough said, especially about positive strategies. It seems like we tend to dwell on the worst and not the solution sometimes. Not to mention I don't think there's anything inherently bad about these things.

    Ok so some things about my depression are like i found out i had it when i was 10. I might of had it before then but Idk. But like is a good thing i joined kw cause that's how my friend on here like figured out that i have depression and basically made me tell my mom and dad. And like also i kinda wanted to die and stuff and then later i kinda wanted to kill my self. And hurt my self. I kinda did a little bit but like not that much. And so like i had to do this weird therapy that didn't work. And then it kept getting worse and stuff and then like i went to the doctor and got some medicine but like they didn't give me any for almost a year probably until i was closer to 12. But the first one they tried made me like wake up sometimes and basically be really anxious like freaking out so much that i thought i might hurt myself or kinda other people or do things like run away. But it kinda helped the depression during the day and helped me to sleep sometimes better but like also i stopped wanting to do anything. So then i got a different one but it made me dizzy as soon as i tried it basically and so like after 3 days maybe then I spotted. But then i had to wait for them to get out of my system. After that i starred like regular therapy where you talk to the therapist. Like people told me it was bad so i really didn't want to go for a long time, but i went and it was kind of fun i guess like i could say anything and he wouldn't like be mad about me saying it or anything like he didn't judge and stuff. So i did that for a while like 2 or 3 months and i was feeling a lot better from that and some off the things we did. But like since my dad got a new job it has different insurance so i have to switch but we're just waiting to see like if i need to right now Thank you so much for sharing? You're really brave to talk about that, and I know that sharing your story is going to help somebody else. Thank you. :)
