Defend Freedom!  •A Last Chance to Stop Iraq
By KENNETH M. POLLACK - New York Times Op-Ed

"Four years later, the international agency was so certain that it had eradicated the Iraqi nuclear program that it wanted to end aggressive inspections in favor of passive "monitoring." Then a slew of defectors came out of Iraq — including Hussein Kamel al-Majid, the son-in-law of Saddam Hussein who led the Iraqi program to build weapons of mass destruction; Wafiq al-Samarrai, one of Saddam Hussein's intelligence chiefs; and Khidhir Hamza, a leading scientist with the nuclear weapons program. These defectors reported that outside pressure had not only failed to eradicate the nuclear program, it was bigger and more cleverly spread out and concealed than anyone had imagined it to be."

"Conclusion: The Lies Continue," sums up the report's findings: "This report shines light on the apparatus used by Saddam Hussein and his cadres to deceive the Iraqi people and the international community. The oppressive and totalitarian nature of Saddam Hussein's regime enables his deception and deceit. This regime, which became expert at obfuscation during the 1991 Persian Gulf war, has now had more than a decade to perfect these practices."

...The Democratic party, playing camp counselor, rests its fundamental war position on the assumption that the United States isn't grown up enough to wonder out into the woods alone, i.e. to conduct a war unilaterally. There can be no "doing it alone," they say. No crossing the street by ourselves. Why? It would be too cowboyish, too rambo-like, too imperialistic....

Defend Freedom!  •A Necessary War
However Washington conducts itself toward individual Arab states, it should be obvious that if the Bush administration now fails to go to war against Saddam Hussein, we will lose enormous face throughout the region. President Bush has defined himself and America by his axis-of-evil, regime-change policy toward Iraq. Without a successful war to remove Saddam, we will return to the pre-9/11 pattern of timidity that Osama bin Laden so effectively underscored in his writings and speeches.... [ Free Republic ]

Defend Freedom!  •Our Letter To President Bush Concerning War With Iraq
"...Anybody with a compelling interest and a little time has access to many independent news sources, especially overseas, to research for themselves the validity of the threat Iraq poses for our country and interests, instead of taking at face value much of the transparently biased mainstream news sources here in country trying to downplay this very real threat."

Defend Freedom!  •Just War Theory and Pre-emptive Actions
The "Just War Theory" has been developed to help Christians determine the appropriateness of military conflict. There are some who believe that war is never justified and so they see the idea the "Just War Theory" as being a needless discussion. We do, however, live in a world that Jesus said would involve wars and rumors of wars. Therefore, we must give every effort to try and determine what a "Just War" is and when it is to be waged.

Not Telling America About Iraq

"...Unlike the "former" Soviet Union whose penchant to destroy America with its vast nuclear arsenal was held in check by the philosophy of mutually-assured destruction [MAD], Iraq will not be deterred by the knowledge that launching a nuclear, biological or chemical strike against the heartland of America will bring catastrophic retaliation against them since the radical Muslim is convinced that the highest calling in life is to die as a martyr to Islam in a Jihad against the infidels...."

Defend Freedom!  •Advice to Bush: Take out Saddam soon
No responsible leader believes Saddam Hussein has changed his stripes. Whether armed with nuclear, biological or chemical weapons, he remains a threat to the world. Even dovish Israeli Foreign Minister Shimon Peres told CNN last week, "The problem today is not if, but when (Saddam will use his weapons of mass destruction)." Peres added that while attacking Saddam now would be "quite dangerous…postponing it would be more dangerous" because "he will have more weapons…". [ Cal Thomas ]

...So I say to doubters in the U.S.—but especially overseas—don't make too much of the little political snits you see reported in our media. The war will go on. It will continue methodically, rationally, and fully. Iraq will fall—and, if they don't cease their support of terrorism, so will several other nations. Bush has the military means and the fortitude—and the allies. He will take whatever preemptive action required to prevent another 9/11 Massacre, or worse, from scourging American soil. As Reagan might have said were he cogent and in charge, "You ain't seen nothin' yet!" [By E.G. Ross, Editor of The Objective American ]
