If Bush et al decide, upon reasonable closure in the Afghanistan capaign,
where the Al Quaeda are eliminated and an interim government put forth with
the objective of bringing the ethnic factions together under one umbrella,
and with clear objectives in mind for a campaign in Iraq, I would not be
This campaign need not be immediate nor a full scale war, though I'm not
eliminating this possibility. Forces should be amassed and ultimatums
issued. There should be full inspections allowed throughout Iraq for
whatever nefarious weapons programs Hussein might be backing. Failing this,
the time for action will be obvious and hopefully our allies support us. The
thorn in our side which has been festering all this time should be removed
before it becomes too infectious to deal with in the future. Once closure is
achieved conditions allowing the facilitation of a more friendly government
in Iraq ready to be embraced by the community of the world should be put in
place. Old wounds should be healed and the Iraqi people helped to get back
on their feet.
Upon closure in Iraq, the U.S. should plan on finally ending our military
presence in Saudi Arabia, ironically one of the issues that got bin Laden
all hot and bothered. Hopefully we can open relations with Iran, which has
appeared to be a little less hostile, and give them a second chance, if our
campaign in neighboring Iraq doesn't alienate them.
If we have clear objectives set forth, failing stronger diplomatic pressures
working beforehand, and a definite exit plan upon closure, I think I can
support military action in Iraq.
It's time to nip the problems in the bud before they become even worse and
harder to manage later on in the ballgame. While we have momentum, we might
as well get it over with.
