WAR OR PEACE: WHAT DOES THE USA REALLY WANT? THE CURRENT USA REGIME IS DETERMINED TO MAKE WAR ON IRAQ FOR REASONS THAT MAKE NO SENSE TO THOSE OF US LIVING IN THE REAL WORLD. AMERICA'S ENTIRE CHANGE OF FOCUS FROM ITS PHONEY "WAR ON TERROR" (NO OSAMA!) TO THAT OLD STANDBY BADGUY SADDAM HUSSEIN REEKS OF POLICTICAL OPPORTUNISM AIMED AT DOMESTIC POLITICS, I.E. THE LOOMING CONGRESS ELECTIONS.

GIVEN THE FRAUDULENT MEANS BY WHICH THE DIM GEORGE BUSH JR AND HIS VENAL OIL INDUSTRY ASSOCIATES ACQUIRED THE WHITE HOUSE, THIS TACTIC IS NO SURPRISE. BUT TO RISK AN ENTIRE MIDDLE EAST CONFLAGRATION FOR THIS?! YES, THE POWERFUL, MONEY-HUNGRY FORCES BEHIND THE INCOMPETANT BUSH THE YOUNGER WOULD GO ALL THE WAY.

WE ALL KNOW SADDAM HUSSEIN IS A THREAT TO NO ONE BUT HIS OWN OPPRESSED PEOPLE. AND THAT WAS NEVER A CONCERN OF THE USA BEFORE THEY LOST OSAMA BIN LADEN POST SEPTEMBER 11. THE DESPERATE ATTEMPT TO LINK IRAQ WITH THE HIJACKED PLANE ATTACKS IS FATUOUS AT BEST. AT WORST, INCENDIARY: WORSE WILL COME.

WE'RE ALL AFRAID NOW, NOT OF SADDAM BUT OF GEORGE.

EVERY EFFORT OF THE USA HAS BEEN TO ESCALATE THE PROSPECT OF A WAR IN AND ON IRAQ. IF WASHINGTON REALLY WANTED IRAQ'S COOPERATION, THE MEANS SEEMS STRAIGHTFORWARD ENOUGH TO ME. HERE'S MY IDEA: INSTEAD OF THREATS OF VIOLENCE, HOW ABOUT HELP?

IF THE USA WAS REALLY INTERESTED IN MAINTAINING WORLD PEACE IT WOULD OFFER TO SCRAP THE DEADLY "SANCTIONS" AGAINST IRAQ IN EXCHANGE FOR SADDAM HUSSEIN'S AGREEMENT TO PERMIT UNITED NATIONS "WEAPONS INSPECTORS" TO CONFIRM WHAT MOST OF US ALREADY SUSPECT: IT'S A BEAT-UP.

I'LL SAY IT AGAIN: IF BUSH, BLAIR AND THEIR FEW OTHER INTIMIDATED "SUPPORTERS" WERE SERIOUS ABOUT GETTING IRAQ ON-SIDE, THEY'D OFFER ASSISTANCE, NOT VIOLENCE.

BUT IF YOU WALK UP TO SOMEONE AND PUNCH HIM IN THE FACE, CHANCES ARE HE'LL PUNCH YOU RIGHT BACK. ONE WAY OR ANOTHER. ISN'T THAT WHAT SEMPTEMBER 11 2001 WAS ALL ABOUT?
