Since Bush has been in office in the U.S. --- life in my country has taken a nosedive. The rich are getting richer and the poor -- poorer.
The middle class which pays most of the taxes is getting hit hard with inflation, unemployment, and deregulation of key utilities and resources which always causes prices to skyrocket.
It is well known that Bush is an oilman, and his backers are from the old school money -- energy and military goods. He has gutted the budget of the alternative energy department and America's dependence on foreign oil is at an all time high.
The supply side economics of the Reagan years are evident here, and the power of the special interests is strong. They believe that if the rich get richer, the economy will be strenghtened and some of that money will trickle down to the workers and the poor.
Who will profit from this war I ask you?
Who will suffer? The people of both Iraq and America will suffer that's who.
Since Washington has been ineffective in capturing Bin Laden, they are making Bin Laden and Saddam one person in the mind of the not too bright American public.
Saddam is most certainly a despicable man, a sadistic tyrant. But I feel that it is not the role of America to play political arbitrator in another country's affairs.
The U.S. has played with the politics of the Middle East for far too long. And the British before them.
We the people must put an end to this madness. The U. S. foreign policy is making the terrorists stronger, not weaker. It is easy for people to hate a nation that is an aggressor. And the U.S. is certinly the agressor here.
Supposedly the United States is the defender of freedom in the world. This action is not in defense of freedom. What has happened to the fine principles that the United States was founded upon.
I don't have a single American friend that supports this war. Not one!
Pray for Peace.
