    I'm interested in finding out if RKBA supporters think that the US should invade Iraq. Considering the extreme feelings over the issue I thought the best way would be a simple pole. That way folks that didn't want to get caught up in the arguments and potential stone throwing would have a chance to express their opinion "safely".

    sorry for the "the our" typo

    I still don't think we are going to invade Iraq.

    MitchSchaft,

    I've seen the other polls, but I thought a more simple direct (less clever) approach was appropriate to get to the core of the question. Not should we wait or not, not will we or won't we, but should we.

    I think we're going to use someone in the Iraq military, along with factions of the Iraqi military, to invade and kill Saddam and the Republican guard. I think we'll contain and annihilate the Republican guard. I think we'll bomb Iraq, but I don't see 200,000 troops moving into Baghdad.

    I don't think we're going to tolerate another mass surrender from Iraqi soldiers. I bet we're going to drop leaflets that say "Go take your country back from Saddam."

    I want OUR guys and gals making sure that all the nasty stuff SH and his merry henchmen have come up with has been completely obliterated. Though if they have to obliterate SH in the process, I have to admit it wont bother me terribly much.

    I already won $5 from a TFL member that bet me that we would invade Iraq by March 1st. I bet him $5 in December that we weren't invading Iraq. I'm $5 richer today. :)

    Ever since we beat Japan with the A-bomb, I doubt we'll ever invade a country like we did when we stormed the beaches of Normandy. What a mistake that was....:rolleyes:

    The Brits in Kuwait already had some Iraqis try and surrender to them the Brit Paras told them they could not accept them as POW because there wasn't a war yet they were so disseveled that it really shook up the Paras
    once again we need to drop liberator to the people
    it is going to be a real feeding frenzy when the MINDERS are powerless and the Iraqi people go for their pound of flesh we should let them feed for a while:evil:

    The damning evidence will come after the invasion, not before.

    Saddam could turnover a stack of weapons that would reach the moon and we will still invade. Regardless of what Saddam does his country will be invaded. This is not only part of the "war on terror" but also economic stimulation,{hopefully :)} and political agendas.

    If they really want to secure the U.S. then maybe they should secure the border to Mexico. 18,000 illegals a month slip into the U.S. and assimilate into our society and we never know about it.

    I wonder how many terrorists have slipped in and are lying in wait in thier numerous little "cells" just waiting for the word to activate.

    If Saddam turned over every document, scientist,actually came up with some WMD and let the UN inspectors crawl up into his alimentary canal with a 4 foot maglite then a war may be averted.

    I don't think Saddam has enough brains to save his regime
    and keep us from invading.

    Only because it is in the United States best interests, no one elses. Its called nationalism and competing for natural resources. Since our entire way of life is based on "cheap" free flowing oil it seems like a Hell of a good reason to me. All benefit whether they are for the war or not. We are committed for the forseeable future to readily available oil whether we like it or not. We have to stay the course for now, maybe in the distant future we will become dependant on some other energy source.

    My reasoning for getting rid of Saddam is:



    We gotta kill one of our enemies at a time.

    telewinz is correct. I also think its pathetic that we still have to rely on oil.

    We should be blazing a trail into the future and setting a shining example for the rest of the world to follow with alternative methods of fuel.

    Instead we sit in our bloated gas guzzling vehicles chocking on fumes in traffic jams and have the gall to complain about gas prices.

    It would be nice however to secure our most valuable commodity for the long term by stationing a force in Iraq and securing the oil fields for our use. Yes, I think we should permanently occuppy Iraq. It would be expensive yes, but just think of the possibilities; 75cents a Gallon gas! Boy then we could build bigger and less fuel efficient vehicles.Whoopie!:barf:

    Better to invade now than wait until SoDam Insane has a Nuke to smuggle into Washington or drop on Tel Aviv.
