There has to be a better way than going to war with Iraq

I think most people would like to be like Rich Mayfield and believe peace can cure all of the world’s woes. Fortunately, there are those of us who can see and understand reality.

Rich seems to believe President Bush is hell-bent on going to war just for the sake of killing innocent people. I choose to believe he is hell-bent on doing the job we elected – yes, elected – him to do: Protecting us and people who can’t protect themselves from the likes of Saddam.

Saddam has proven that he will not hesitate to kill his own people and will kill thousands more innocent people if he is not stopped now. People like Rich choose to ignore these facts. I don’t know why.

The way I figure it, each additional day we stay out of war brings us 24 hours closer to Saddam achieving nuclear weapons and creating an alliance with terrorists.

I can’t believe so many people have forgotten 9-11 so soon, and so many refuse to believe those attacks on the U.S. are not connected to Saddam.
