Originally posted by Toadborg Well he doesn't pose a threat to anyone at the moment and the previous weapons inspectors destroyed most of his weapons so it looks pretty good really........
Why do we need to get into war quickly?
The only successful methods that work in dealing with terrorists are to isolate them, decapitate their organizations, and eliminate those who cannot be rehabilitated or reeducated. The population base from which they draw must be educated and made aware of the consequences of assisting/supporting terrorism. Terrorists are criminals that hate. Nothing more. Giving them a status other than that is empowering them.

The UN's relevance is not decided upon by Bush or any other single world leader now or at any other time in its history. .
Originally posted by Toadborg Do you think he could successfully wage a war of aggression on another state today, if he wanted to?
OK the inspections led to the destruction of Iraqi weapons...
I don't see the link you are trying to draw between Iraq and TWAT....
Originally posted by Clandestine Firstly, Given that I said any "Single" world leader, no.
Secondly since the US never joined it it also is a poor comparison.
Try reading what is written not what you choose to read. :rolleyes:

I agree with you on the importance of education in reducing the terrorist threat.
If this is to be a proper method though, would it not be better to try and educate the people of Saudi Arabia or Egypt?
No terrorists have come from Iraq. Surely easier to initiate such a policy in surrounding nations and let ideas leach into iraq rather than the other way round?
