War on Terror
January 29, 2008 2:59pm CST
First of all I'm not asking about the War in Iraq. I'm wondering what people think about our nation's War on Terror in general. For example, do you agree with our prescense in Afghanistan? Should we continue tracking down Al-Quida? Should we invade Iran? I'll leave this pretty wide open. What do you guys think?

First of all "our" presence in Iraq is completely unwarranted as the alleged "attack" that took place on 9/11 was reportedly done by 19 Saudis. So basically if the Saudis attacked s why are we at war with Afghanistan?Now I didn't believe myself that the "attack" was a terrorist act but a conspiracy to fool incite the American publics anger and fuel an outcry for war. What is really happening here is a few rich b*****ds have there hands in Middle Eastern oil profits and they have political pull in our government. It is ashame that the leaders of this country are motivated by personal gain more so than aiding the general population. The "War On Terror" is basically a massive ploy to keep the American public in fear. This fear reduces us to a consumer based society to blinded by our own fears to pay any attention to the real plan being put into action. We accept the color coded terror alerts and would eventually accept martial law as a means of normalizing the society as a whole. An oil pipeline was built through Afghanistan as a direct product of this "war." What is the purpose of this pipeline? Why was it built? What part did the "war on terror" play in the creation of this pipeline? Who stands to profit from the transmission of oil resources through this country? These are the real questions that need to be answered? The Bush family is on the receiving end of a lot of money from Saudi oil profits and I'm sure George W. is thinking of life after his presidency. I'd gladly throw away $400,000 a year for $400 billion. You know?

I'm going to look specifically at whether or not we should invade in Iran. The fact that Iran is the number one state sponsor of terrorism and their nuclear ambitions will be the two points I examine 1. The fact that they are the number one state sponsor of terrorism is pretty much fabricated in comparison to the United States and your looking at a nation that barely manages to sell weapons to hamas or hezbollah. and the idea that they are trafficing weapons into Iraq is total bull they have been reported by president Al Maliki himself as helping in ending the importation of weapons into iraq. The only institute that has thus far tried to prove proxy war is the Institute for the study of war which is a totally biased right wing institution. the fact is we have never caught a single instance of training or weapon movement into Iraq by Iran. 2. The nuclear weapon ambitions were ended in 2003 according to the most recent Nation Inteligence Estimate. That's a big uh oh to the bush administration because they've been proclaiming for years that they will have the abillity to produce a nuclear weapon in late 2010 the reality is that with the production rate of the reactors they have they wouldn't be able to have a nuclear weapon for 50 years. that comes from Time's Dec issue of 2007
