What rights and freedoms have been taken away? Anything really serious???
Are women now to cover their faces in public?
Are we told what we can and cannot eat?
Are we told what religion to follow or believe in?
Are we told what jobs to have?
Are we made to work for nothing?
Are women forced to be circumsised? Or have their genitals mutilated like an animal?
Yeah we need to smarten up all right, we need to stop feeling sorry for ourselves, and realize how good we have it. Take a look around you.....what do you see? Is it all that bad? If you are in a bad situation, I bet you have the freedom to remove yourself from it. Other people in other countries cannot even do that. Some don't even have the right to vote.
Some countries hate America, some governments hate America. Do we not have the right to protect ourselves and the millions of people that America houses?
What do you suppose Saddam Hussein is going to do with the biological and chemical warfare in his possesion? Do you think he'll use it on his own people(his pawns)? I don't think so.
Do you suppose he may use it on a nation he hates so openly?
Should we sit back, like the laid back North Americans we are and let this risk fester like an open wound? Do you really believe that doing nothing is going to prevent another Sept. 11?
You say that war is not an answer. I agree.
How else though, do you compromise, make deals etc. with a Cruel Dictator that is being evasive and that we know has evil intentions?
Wouldn't we all like to live happily ever after, with no confrontations? Unfortunately that is not possible when we live in a evil world.
