Should We Be Fighting A War In Iraq

Should We Be Fighting A War In Iraq - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006

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.

    This is probably the cutest thing about growing up I've ever read, I just... Everyone grows up. No one's the exact same person they were 3 years ago, sometimes they're not even the same way they were 3 days ago. Every single is person is going to look back at their past self and cringe at something- something they said, something they did, something they didn't do. It's a sign of maturity. Everyone gets there (eventually; some earlier than others). I came back from a break around two or three months ago and wow did I feel embarrassed. I was in such an extreme scene phase when I made this account and everything was so.. yikes. My bio and albums were scattered with pictures of band members and "emo" YouTubers and I wanted to, like, burn it all (I deleted a lot of them, but the less cringey ones are still there). And my username..? Oh man my username. Not gonna be able to live this one down, that's for sure. I'm going to stay until I'm 18, if I find the time to (which I should because cyber school isn't that time consuming so). Maybe the remnants of 12 year old Kristin are the bane of my existence, but I've made some nice memories here, and I'm looking forward to making many more. (:

In other words, he's building a wall so that people will stop breaking the law.  2. He's hired many Muslims and has many Muslim friends. His ban on Muslims has recently changed, but even in its' original state, it was a temporary ban meant to combat radical Islam. Trump's Muslim policies have never had anything to do with thinking that all Muslims are bad, it's just that most terrorists are Muslim and a temporary Muslim ban would eliminate most of the terrorists coming into our country.  3. Business deals with politics, and perhaps we need someone who's not a politician? Many have become corrupt, have been found to blatantly lie to their people, have not kept their promises after being elected. If anything, the fact that Trump is successful and yet not a politician is even more of a reason to vote for him.  Honestly, I thought the whole "Trump hates Mexicans and Muslims" thing would have been over by now. It's so obvious that he doesn't hate them, all you have to do is listen to what he says.    1) Just a few issues with the wall, disregarding the purpose. Is the wall going to replace current fencing? There may be major breaches whilst the wall is under construction. Will Trump have permission to build on every inch of land the wall is to be placed upon? How do you expect Mexico to pay for it when they outright refused? The geography alone will not make it easy to build completely along the border. Do you not think the alienating Mexico will create a larger social divide between the two countries? Finally, the engineering alone behind the wall is so implausible, I don't think Trump himself realises just how difficult it will be. 2) "He has many Muslim friends" - Oh dear, the classic anti-racist comment. 'I'm not racist because I'm friends with blacks'. His current proposal is just as absurd as his original proposal. He wants to ban Muslims coming from countries with a terrorist past? (or has he changed his proposal yet again?). Let's see, that consists of almost every country in the world if you want to go back far enough. How far in the past does he want to look? He also mentioned that he wants to suspend immigration of the same people trying to enter countries with US alliance. What, does he plan on flying over and stopping Iraqis from entering the UK? That should be entertaining. This ban though... yes, you're preventing 'Muslim terrorists' from entering the US but you're also preventing 1.5 billion other Muslims from entering. That totally seems fair. Why don't you ban holiday makers from entering the US too, because 1 decided to commit murder in the past? You'll probably get a similar attacker-innocent ratio. 3) Can we stop with the whole idea that being able to run a business means you can run a country? If that were true the UK would have had Sir Alan Sugar in power years ago. He's not even an economist. He probably doesn't even know what a Current Account is. The government isn't a business. The US has a free market economy, not a command economy. Trump isn't going to be a salesman, he's going to be a Prime Minister. It's vital he knows his politics. He may have ideas that people love but he has no idea how to run a country. P.s. I really worry for America's future economy if their idea of a 'successful' businessman is someone who ends up piling on so much debt that his businesses reach bankruptcy. There are countless businessmen more successful than Trump that 90% of people haven't ever heard of. Trump loves to big himself up and so do his supporters. You're making the man sound far greater than he actually is and it's possibly going to cost you the future of your country.

The only thing you could blame Bush for is the war in Iraq, but even though Obama didn't start the war in Iraq, he ended it in the worst way possible.

    Don't worry I felt the same way when getting back on this account. I had made it when I was about to turn 11. I am 15 now. Time changes a lot and I am definitely not the same person I was when starting kidzworld. I'm starting my Sophomore year after summer is over and honestly I'll probably try to stick to this website for as long as I can until they lock my account when I'm 18.
