hi Jorel,

There are very many people in the world who feel the same as you about this war. Just one hour north of me in San Francisco, thousands of people have been protesting and marching in the streets. They are very passionate about their beliefs and so are those on the other side who support what we're doing and also those people that have children that are in the military over there.

This is a very sensitive subject

As for myself, I'll just say that I have no sympathy at all for Saddam Hussein and other evil dictators and I fully support our soldiers over there including our British allies and I hope this thing is over very soon.

Being british, i wish i could disassociate myself from what is happening. None of my friends support the action, and watching some of the images from iraq last night made me sick. They talk of weapons of mass destruction, and mad leaders having the abiltity to use them? well what we are doing now totally contradicts everything. 350 scud missiles were fired the other night! Thats far more than saddam could dream about getting his hands on - in one night - on a country which can't defend itself.

Sorry guys - from now on - no comment

Jim

I know i am going to get my but whipped for this. And a big a plus i am an american. The reason i justify the war is because if suddam was left alone he might be able to develop those weapons just as north korea has. Then most people would be asking the questions why didnt we intervene before he had the time to develop and use to negitiate like north korea is trying to do. I think that is total bs, and i know the US bombing Iraq is horrible, but if we could do it another way we would have. Iraq said it had complied with the UN, but are presently using weapons they should not have. Trust me i feel for the Iraq people, they are the same as us. But like many US spokesman have said, this isnt a war with Iraq, its a war against the Regime. Just felt i should say something.

Hello Jorel,

First of all, please do not misinterpret my response, because I certainly mean you no offense or disrespect in any way. While I realize that I really don't know you personally, (but then again do any of us truly know each other anymore since the internet came along?...another 1 of those "off-topic" discussions ), I believe it's safe to say that it is not your intent to cause friction or any potential flamewars here.

I also realize that this is an "off-topic" subject, and as such, you appropriately posted it in the "Anything not related to video" Forum.

While you (and of course, everyone) are 100% entitled to your/their own opinions on this horribly difficult issue, I personally don't feel that this sort of topic is particularly appropriate for this board, even if you did put it in the "Anything not related to video" Forum. True, it does technically fit the description given to the Forum, but that doesn't necessarily make it "appropriate". You have to ask yourself, what is this thread going to accomplish here? It's obviously a very sensitive subject that people will have differing opinions on, with no 100% right or wrong answers. I highly doubt that ANY amount of debate on the subject here within the kvcd forums is going to be of much comfort or very helpful to anyone, and it also probably won't change current world
affairs either unless both saddam and George happen to browse kvcd.net and see this thread and have an epiphany while reading it. (please excuse my attempt at levity during a bad situation).

But, we all do share at least 1 common interest here...video (and all things related). Afterall, this is a board dedicated to "KVCD Templates and Advanced Video Conversion"...at least, that's what it says at the top of the page. It's also one of the friendliest, nicest forums I've ever stumbled upon and have had the pleasure of being a member of. Let's please try to keep it that way by excercising good judgement and not delving into these types of potentially ugly topics or "gray" areas of discussion. Every time I turn on my TV, listen to the radio or read the newspaper, I'm already constantly being force-fed information about the war in Iraq. When I log on to kvcd.net to partake in my favorite hobby, the war in Iraq is just about the last thing I feel like hearing/seeing/discussing (actually, Rosie O'Donnell having "relations" with Michael Jackson is the LAST thing I'd wanna see...but pointless political debates on topics like war, abortion, the death penalty, flamewars, etc etc, would come in at a close 2nd place). I already went to college and I've had my share of these "what was Goofy anyways: a man or a dog?" debates (that's a reference from the film "Stand By Me" for those not aware). My point being, there really isn't much point.

There are many more suitable boards/websites that are designed specifically for political/philosophical discussions and debates of this nature (and the flamewars that inevitably follow them...I think we've all seen these kinds of forums..and we know how unpleasant they can be at times). KVCD.net thankfully is not one of these places. Let's do our best to keep it that way folks. That's my only $0.02 on this subject, or future ones like it.

Peace,
-d&c

I agree with dazed&confused that the KVCD forums aren't really a place for political debates and things that we are forced to listen to every moment of our lives anyway, but I myself am completely against the war in Iraq. I could spend ages explaining why, but as dazed&confused said, I don't particularly think that these forums are the place and I don't want to introduce more political disagreement.....so I'll just say that on:

well I don't think that anyone will start a flame-war here, and I really don't have a problem to talk about this topic. I think nobody should be offended, and I don't see why one shouldn't post his opinion about this issue here. Of course it might lead to nothing, but still I personally find it interesting to hear other opinions than my own.

What I have to say is that I am totally against this war, because the way I see it, the Weapon-Inspectors in Iraq have just made promissable progresses in disarming the country. The Iraqi Regime has cooperated with the inspectors in a way they had never done before, so I really think it wasn't necessary to spill blood. I totally agree with everybody who says that Saddam is a very cruel and bad person. But the fact that this war is fought without a United Nation's resolution is the prove for me that it is not legitime.

Looking forward for any responds!

I agree Jellygoose. The problem is, after 9/11, the US and Britain don't want to give anyone any time. Disarming means disarming now, or face the consequences. The problem is, i think this war will create more problems than it solves...

hi jellygoose!

I'm with you- I enjoy hearing other's opinions on this subject. I'm not offended by other's opinions at all and i certainly don't wish to offend other's with mine.

i'm in the minority here because i do support this war. Saddam is a madman who IMO has got to go and his time is up. Please check out these links:

and if you want i can post the url.....but see...this is not my opinion,read please:

I'm an ex Polaris Submariner and Sadam is no threat to the UK or the US.

Phoney Blair and Bush are hypocrits for instance, Israel has been in breach of Un resolutions for more than 30 years and has a nuclear reactor that should have been shut down more than 10 years ago because of its age and safety record. Is anything done,No, to much fear of upsetting the Jewish moneymen. does Ari Fleischer mention anything about it, no he probably sends half his monthly wages back to the motherland.

How exactly is Sadam a threat, he certainly doesn't have a missile capable of hitting the UK never mind the US(and I doubt he ever will) for instance Britain builds its own nuclear warheads, and Submarines but the polaris and trident missile systems we buy from the US. Why?? because we don't have the money, resources and technical expertise, if we can't do it Iraq certainly can't.as for selling a warhead to a terrorist, how's he going to achieve this Iraq has been locked down tight for more than 10 years, and believe me to build a nuclear weapon you need facilities a little bit more advanced than a garden shed. Weapons of mass distraction more like.

As for gassiing his own people, whilst I don't condone it, the Kurds aren't Sadam own people they are Kurds who have been fighting for indepence from Iraq for years incidentally they also want a bit of jordan, Kuwait, some other country and a bit of Turkey, who incidentally persecutes the Kurds aswell, ask the Turkish asylum seekers here in the UK. Incidentally are you aware that during the 50's and 60's the US government deliberately infected more than a 1000 black men in the deep south with syphilis, just to see how it affected them. Don't believe me, if your an American check the records they have now been made public. Has anybody been held to account? NO!!. There is also another much more shocking incident which I can't be bothered to go into, but it isn't conspiracy theory, its also been released into the public record.

As for who he got his weapons off, we sell planes to East Timor who use them against their own, but we did nothing, we have done nothing about China's invasion of Tibet(we have given them the Olympic Games). The US gives Israel 3bn dollers PA and all the tanks and helicopter gunships it wants(incidentally this is partly in exchange for unmanned drone aeroplane technology, which Israel was once the world leader in, we should give the Palestinians gunships and tanks so they can fight on an even keel, instead fo having to use stones and suicide bombers. We had Augusto Pinochet under arrest, and we eventually sent him home with a pat on the back and a sorry for the inconvenience old boy. other terrible regimes are Burma, North Korea and Saudi Arabia whom the US government protects from the people it abuses.

Some compare Iraq with Nazi Germany and say we did nothing then and look what happened. During the 30's Germany was destitute, but it had a very large population, vast reserves of timber, coal and iron, all the raw materials needed to build the vast Nazi war machine, Sadam has dates, wool, cotton and oil he can't sell, where's he gonna get the planes, tanks and ships is he going to knit them. Iraqs population is about a third of the UK's.

Also remember that the US is the only nation to have used a nuclear weapon in anger, which to a point was justified ( however us British suffered a lot more at the hands of the Japanese than the US did) but after the first was dropped they went back and did it again, which was unacceptable.
Chemical weapons read Agent Orange. Agent Orange is well and truly part of the Vietnamese food chain, where thousands of children are born with deformities every year because of it, has anybody been brought to justice. NO!!!

Doesn't anybody find it strange that apart from Phoney Blair and the spanish PM the only European leader who is behind Bush is Silvio Berlusconni( I have to wonder has Bush promised him a get out of jail free card next time he's caught with his fingers in the cash register.

As for the links between Iraq and Al Qaeda, Bin Laden hates Sadam. As for Al Qaeda operatives being invited to Iraq, Rumsfeld says they were staying with Kurds in the North. HELLO!! The kurds and Sadam hate each other.

The fact that Bin Laden is still at large(shows the ineptitude of the US military) cruise missiles do not make for a professional force(incidentally Chinook crashes seem to be a regular occurence, time to ground them i think), why do you think they call in the British and Australian SAS to do the really dangerous work.

As I said earlier Bin Laden is still at large, and somebody has to pay for sept 11. The twin towers was full of corporate money movers who, shift large amounts of cyber money around and cream off a massive profit in the process, and making a mess of our pension funds and getting away with it(shame about the fire-fighters, though they are your real community heroes. So the US and British government has picked an easy target who nobody likes and is using him to set an example Somebodies head has to roll, Sadams head is well recognised so well worth rolling.

On another note if the US is so keen to get people for war crimes why did Bush refuse to sign up to the international court, unless US troops were granted immunity. Why would he want this?? isn't justice meant to be for all.
And finally what about the prisoners in Guantanamo Bay, which is occupied territory after all, they haven't had access to lawyers, they haven't been charged. Whilst I agree that some of them probably are Al Qaeda, most of them areTaleban Fighters afghanistans ramshackle militia army, (Taleban fighter is not another name for Al Qaeda) in my country some youngsters join the army to get off of welfare, have the US considered some of these may have joined the Afghan army for the prospect of a decent pair of boots and a decent hot meal every once in a while.

Just my two cents worth.

No doubt I'm going to receive some flak over this so if any Americans disagree, please feel free to contradict me with evidence, rather than just resorting to the standard American disagreement reply of your just a looser, a reetard and a mooron. (the spelling is meant to reflect the accent).

As I said I'm an ex Polaris submariner so have been privvy to the odd military secret or two, and my brother is a Lt.Colonel in the british army, he's out there now like he was out there the last time.

Incidentally, I think last time was justified to throw him out, does anybody know the reasons why he invaded Kuwait(No?? didn't think so)however if the US had been in the same position they'd have invaded aswell.

One last thing don't blame the French for the collapse of the 2nd resolution, the US and the UK were the only countries on the security council who were in favour of it. W e have now shown ourselves to be just as bad as he is. To you lars6843 I know exactly whats going on.

it's just one more opinion,like the government...wrote what he wants!
i don't see any "strange weapon" found in iraq,then in what can i believe??
and i saved many,many more posts in the world.
three of my threads are closed,but don't matter,i want to help to stop the war!!!
thanks!

Something that pis*es me off more than anything are the comparisons between Iraq and 1930's Germany by the media / government. In the 30's, Germany was a hugley powerful country with a navy, airforce and army which could compete with any in the world. Hitler marched from country to country, and invented then blitzkrieg (which the UK and US seemed to have copied for this war - only we call it Shock and Awe?). In the 30's, the rest of europe defended itself because it had to, although no one here in the uk could ever forget that the US didn't feel it appropriate to help until they themlselves were attacked.

Iraq now is a country which can't defend itself and has a cobbled together army, next to no airforce and poor weapons. Sure, Saddam is one bad man, but so is Mugabe. What about Chinas human rights record? What about the millions starving and dieing in Africa. And what about Osama?

I don't know what this war is about. President Bush today said; 'Don't be surprised if this is not a quick war'. This again contradicts what we were told only a matter of weeks ago when we were told that they could go in and get this done swiftly. Personally i don't trust Bush's intensions, and i think he's going to drag the rest of the world with him.

Jorel,

Jorel Friend. I'm sorry if I offended you in any way. I know you didn't write the post and i wasn't really commenting on it directly. It was an observation in the Bristish Papers today which made another comparison between Hitler and Saddam. Your post just reminded me about it (and i agree with what it says)! I get upset about it because my Grandfather, and all of my fathers uncles were killed in world War 2. Thats why i think this war is so needless.

And about your english. I think your english is amazing! If i could speak spanish (or portuguese - i can't remember what the language of Brazil is?!) i would be a very, very happy man!

Because i have upset you, i won't comment any more on this issue because i never meant to.

Jim

Hmm...now that I think about it I don't see why we shouldn't discuss this here, so I'll go ahead and give my reasons for opposing the war.

Firstly, there was no second UN resolution. This means this war is completely illegal. We are told the Iraqi people want this to happen. How can this be true? This is just another example of information being "filtered for the public eye". Secondly, no weapons were found! Even if Saddam does have weapons of mass destruction, so does Bush! And in my opinion he is far more likely to misuse them. Even now he is attacking a completely defenseless country, and after this war Iraq's oil is going to be used to feed America's over-commercialised materialistic requirements. As well as all this, there is of course the small fact that a huge amount of innocent Iraqis will be pointlessly slaughtered. I keep hearing people report that soldiers encountered "pockets of resistance," these are people! They were obviously (and probably mercilessly) killed! How can people speak of them so calmly? We have also been SUPPLYING Iraq with weapons for years, and now we suddenly decide to fight them?! Is this fact advertised? No! Bush believes his country is the center of the world, can do only good, and whatever he decides is the right thing. Not to mention Tony Blair, still foolishly believing that "his country" will accept the fact that they are going to war just because HE SAYS this is right. What happened to democracy?? This is not a democratic system. People are made to believe it is democratic along with other things to give them the illusion of living in a happy world where problems are dealt with quickly and we only have to worry about ourselves. We are expected not to challenge the decisions of our leaders, and to follow the masses like sheep.......we can only hope this war will be over quickly and with few innocent deaths.......

If I have offended anyone I am sorry, but these are just my views. I may be completely wrong about this, make of it what you will.
