So what\'s the big deal with war? If we go to war? I'm sitting here thinking about it, and really don't see so much the big deal. Aside from the service men and women being away from thier families and possibly the target of hate in a mideastern country, are they really in that much of harms way? I'm beginning to see this as "yeah, he can do us damage if we let him lie, but putting our forces against his is like using a dump truck next to a wheelbarrow. How much do we realistically have to fear?" How many people did we lose in Desert Storm that were a result of the enemies action? The big thing I hear about from desert storm vets is the chemical stuff that our government may have inflicted in attempt to vaccinate. My thinking is that the days of vietnam, where we lose people like running a faucet, are over. As far as the war coming to our turf, I fear that more than any action in another country; all we need is more excuses for government/law enforcement (no disrespect meant to fellow CK5er's in law enforcement) to put it's nose in private citizens business. Going to war with Iraq is not likely to spark any more anti-american/domestic-soil terrorism attempts than are already being attempted or planned without being at war, and if it does spark more terrorism locally, the planners would hopefully be stupid enough to get caught, since they're stupid enough to try something when everyone's expecting something. Our worst domestic terrorist event happened when we were not at war or in aggression (that the public knows of) with anyone. Tired of the talk without action. If we're gonna go to war, let's go. If we're not, let's get off the pot. Enough of these stupid news channel dramatic logos and music, then some homo standing there talking about what a world bully we are, when we're covering our backs. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif Anyway, just my morning musing over coffee. Certainly no disrespect meant to any servicemen/women or vets in any way. Your thoughts?
