"You know basically nothing about me and my view of myself. Yet you are perfectly willing to peg me."

I judge you on your comments here- if they do not represent you, try not making them. You have been making unsubstantiated statements and expecting them to be taken as true, while ignoring all evidence that supports any viewpoint you do not agree with. Typical God-delusion, to me.






Peace,

I try to look at the facts as known and as can be provided as evidence. I do not take what the administration says blindly, nor do I believe that everything they say is a lie.

I can build a nuclear device in about 2 months or less, if you let me have materials. Why should I believe that those who have threatened me, and my family, and my country, are any less capable?

The UN stated that there were prohibited materials unaccounted for- there were prohibited materials found in Iraq. Had Saddam complied, there would have been no need for war- yet none of the anti-war folks bothered to demand that. Why should I think, after being told to "STOP" a hell of a lot more than 3 time, that Saddam would not make up WMD with the materials that the UN had told him he should not have, and attack with scuds that he should not have had?

"Some 75 percent of the total U.S. population of 290 million people and 75 percent of its military bases are within 200 miles of the coast. The number of potential launch platforms is immense, with 130,000 registered merchant ships in 195 countries, NWIS said.

Thousands of SCUDs and other inexpensive short-range ballistic missiles have been dispersed, sold worldwide with some in countries where terrorist groups operate openly.

Iran test-launched a tactical ballistic missile from a ship last year and the threat has become much worse with the rapid proliferation of cruise missiles. China has already supplied many to Iran.

Some 70 countries already possess an estimated 75,000 anti-ship cruise missiles and many of them could be easily converted to land-attack weapons. At least 10 nations already have land-attack cruise missiles and their number is increasing, NWIS said"


So we should just ignore that Saddam was making missiles of a longer range than he was permitted? And that he had stockpiles of chemicals to produce WMD?
