While Saddam might get killed and the Baath party might get dismembered and the Iraqi people might get their country back, and George Bush Sr. and his Carlyle group might get control of the oil, we have to ask ourselves, what did we, US citizens, get out of this?
We will never be the same again. We have overtaken Israel to become the most hated nation in the middle east and the world. We have lost our credibility and earned the wrath of the whole free world in the process.
Our country is deeply divided. Families are being torn apart. The issue of war transcends partisanship. One is no longer just Democrat or Republican. Nowadays one is either pro peace or pro war. Senator Joe Liebermann is a fine example of a pro war democrat. Not a few members of the Bush administration's diplomats have resigned in disgust with our bully foreign policy.
Nobody wins here but Paul Wolfowitz and his Zionist team. Nobody wins here but Ariel Sharon and his "thousand eyes for an eye" policies. The unjust Iraqi invasion will only further embolden the "man of peace" to attack his neighbors using Israel's WMD. We ignore the fact that Israel has broken dozens of UN resolutions.
