Saddam Hussein has been captured and the war in Iraq continues, so we're asking what you think about the most recent conflict in the middle east. Should we be fighting this war? Are the United States, Britain, Spain and Portugal just in their crusade agai

On March 17th, George W. Bush gave Saddam Hussein 48 hours to leave Iraq, and then the US began its attack. On May 1, 2003 President Bush declared that "major combat operations in Iraq have ended" but since then many Americans, British, Coalition soldiers and Iraqis have continues to fight and die. No matter where you are in the world, war effects us all. What do you think would be going on today if you had a say in how the world was run, instead of all these adults? Would there still be a war waging or would peace prevail? Tell us what you think! If you need more info, check out some of the facts listed below, and then tell us what you would do about the impending war.

A Brief Overview of the Conflict in Iraq

  • Saddam Hussein is the former president of Iraq and was the focus of the occupation of Iraq.
  • Two main countries are leading the attack against Iraq - The United States and Britain. Other countries like France, Germany, China and Canada do not support the war against Iraq, unless it is backed by the United Nations.
  • The United Nations (UN) is an international organization whose main goal is to keep peace around the world and to help all countries work together. At this time, the UN does not support the war against Suddam Hussein and Iraq.
  • In 1990, just before the Gulf War, 1,000 Iraqi dinars were worth $3,300 US. As of 2002, 1,000 Iraqi dinars were only worth 33 cents US.
  • Half of Iraq's 24.5 million people are children.
  • On December 13th, 2003 Saddam Hussein was captured alive. He was hiding in a hole at a compound near his hometown of Tikrit, Iraq.
  • As of December 14th, 2003, at least 456 Americans have died in the attack on Iraq.
  • In the first three days of the war on Iraq, up to 15,000 Iraqis were killed. About 4,300 of them were civilians.

1 This is it! We are going to war. I thought that at first that we shouldn't go to war but now I have second thoughts. Now I know we're going to war!
