Do you think that more dead American soldiers now is better than more dead civilians in other countries later?

Bush has not had a blood bath in Iraq. We (US and UK) won a war...we (US/UK) had no-fly zones there....we were going to have to face this issue sooner or later. I am quite glad we did it now. The UN is the most inept, corrupt, useless organization on the planet and should be dismembered, by force if necessary.

Gee. I wonder where all the Australian soldiers ended up?

...as well as the many troops from other countries.

See, if you changed UN to US in that last sentence, I'd agree with you, ncfelix69.

It's pretty orwellian to start a war for something that just might happen in the future.

Death is a tragedy no matter who it happens to. What makes a soldier more important than a civilian or vice versa?

I hardly think that the situation in Iraq is a "blood bath". When you think about it, we haven't really lost THAT many soldiers... I mean, when it comes to a human life I do think that even one is too many, but when you compare it to other things (the American Civil War, either of the World Wars, the Holocaust, etc.) then I think calling it a "blood bath" is a really disgusting exaggeration.

As someone who has been in Iraq, I know it is worth it

"deep down at heart you know your fellow country men mean more to you than then a person from any other country"

no...no i don't know that...because it's not true...a persons life is not any more or less important to me, because of what country they happened to be born in.

Whoa a few people have the same thinking as I think it was truman during WW2, " Hell we might as well kill a few hundred thousand Japs , to save a few thousand AMERICAN soldiers"

There is no math to determine how the value of the lives of persons can be compared.

Come on, get real. Bush wouldn't give a sh*t about Iraq if it wasn't for the oil.

BTW, how many dead before it's a bloodbath? 10,000? 20,000? we've already killed more Iraqi CIVILIANS than that, so when does the "Bloodbath Seal of Approval kick in?

Great question, make the liberals think for once. :)

Later on? There's dead civilians out there already, and instead of Saddam doing it it's now us killing innocent people with spectacular efficiency, i'ts not just our soldiers dying for some great cause that will save humanity later on, that's wildy optimistic and false.


But stepping outside of the Iraq mindset and just examining the question, yes, the lives of soldiers in exchange for the peace of civilians is worth it in the end, if it actually works.

american soldiers are not drafted, they're volunteers, they knew the risk of their jobs before they took them on, and the ones that die are dying for a cause. they should be thanked for their scarifice but we shouldn't do a half-assed job in mission just because we don't want so many soldiers to die. a good soldier would put his life in danger to save civilians from harm, i believe.
ncfelix, nice to hear a voice of reason every once in awhile on these comment pages
