As the war against Iraq is underway, we're 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.

    I am 12 and I can suggest some I have/am reading, appropriate for 11/12. NOVELS: CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY (by Roald Dahl)- it is for 8  and above and really good for anyone to read THE SECRET GARDEN (by Frances Hodgson Burnett)- It Is really for 9 and above. I am sure u will enjoy it.  HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME (by Victor Hugo)-You may not like it at first but slowly you will just LOVE it! -FOR A LITTLE OLDER AGE (13 onwards) Princess Diaries (by Meg Cabot, 18 parts)- It is a good book. deals with the autobiography/Diaries/Journals of a teen princess. Well I mostly read Novels so I know which standard they usually are and the age for which it is meant. I red short stories too but I cannot understand what age they are for. So I can only tell you about Novels.  ENJOY! :):]:-)
