How was the war today? (english)
03 Apr 2003
Modified: 04 Apr 2003
Our young soldiers are spilling their blood, but they're doing a fine job in admirable fashion and the war's
going well, considering Saddam's foul tactics and the traditional anti West distrust and hatred inherent in the
region. Those liberated so far look awfully quiet and suspicious for a recently freed people. 'Course, that
could change after the war, which could be brief, if Syria, Saudi Arabia, and other Arab hostiles mind their
manners.

Our young soldiers are spilling their blood, but they're doing a fine job in admirable fashion and the war's going well, considering Saddam's foul tactics and the traditional anti West distrust and hatred inherent in the region. Those liberated so far look awfully quiet and suspicious for a recently freed people. 'Course, that could change after the war, which could be brief, if Syria, Saudi Arabia, and other Arab hostiles mind their manners.
Unfortunately, most powerful heads of state in the region regard us as a deadly threat to their sacred "non democratic" sovereignty (and lavish way of life).
Consequently, Arab leaders have passionately hated us for a long time. They'll take our money, but they demonize us to their people and to the people of the
world. Since the creation of Israel, they have used their oil money to aggressively sponsor global religious hatred and terrorism against the people of democratic
nations, and the frequency and severity of damage inflicted has increased dramatically in recent years. They haven't hurt us as badly as they could, but too many
innocent Americans have already been lost in this phony "Jihad." It's not a religious war. It's a desperate fight for an ancient culture and treasured way of life.

I doubt if Saddam lived through the first U.S. attack on Baghdad, but if he did, I suspect, his plan is not to use bio/chemical weapons, but to play on world
sympathy for the "brutal and unjust invasion." 'Likely, he thought, if he died, he'd become a revered Arab martyr, encouraging a global crusade against the West;
and that if he lived, the world would view us as the presumptuous invaders, which might excuse his atrocities and damage any prospects for democracy in the
region.

But the world will know the truth. For the first time, Americans will control television in the Arab world. Arabs will know of Saddam's rape, massacre and torture
of thousands of Iraqi people. They'll discover he sponsored terrorism and was developing nuclear technology and other weapons of mass destruction. They'll
know
how he treated his neighbors, they'll know he ordered his soldiers to hide behind women and children, that he desecrated treasured Iraqi religious sites, and set
fire to Iraqi oil fields. And, for the first time, Iraq will be a democratic republic, at least temporarily. Without economic sanctions, they'll enjoy a booming
economy. So what if Halliburton makes a few billion re-building Iraq; they'll be doing the work. Ultimately, America could be regarded as a world hero. France
and the other slackers may snap to and start showing respect to the wisest and most powerful nation on earth.

But if we lose the war or the peace, or if this is just Bush's "Big Brother (evil empire) attack on global rights and civil liberties to abuse, tax and enslave the world,"
it could get, as the brits say, "a bit dicey." But that's what makes a horse race.

As to whether we'll prevail in the big picture, remember, God is on our side. So, don't forget to pray.
