Subject: RE: BS: WAR:- Why the fuss when soldiers die
So you think that the Iraqi people would be better off if we just got out and left Saddam Hussein alone to continue his reign of murder and torture, GUEST,Richard H.?
There was an article about one of the returning "human shields" in which he quotes an Iraqi taxi driver who said that if we did NOT attack, many of them would commit suicide.
The impression that I have gotten from the news coverage that I have seen is that the vast majority of civilians who have been killed have been killed by Saddam Husseins goons as they tried to flee the fighting. The bomb that expolded in the Baghdad market is still under investigation but it could just as easily have been an Iraqi anti-aircraft missle that missed and fell back unexploded.
But think what you want. I'm sure that nothing I could say will change your mind, especially since you seem to have made it up already. Facts would only confuse the issue.
