> how about this (conterversial) suggestion ; asassinate Saddam Hussein. > If it is acceptable to kill civilians because their country is a threat, I > can't see a problem with removing the man who carries the blame. why not assassinate clinton instead, in a way he's to blame for the sanctions? (easy answer: gore would take over and he wont make things better). but to continue on a more serious note: isn't that what the bombing is trying to achieve? ok, i know the point is supposed to be to get iraq to comply with un resolutions etc, but at the end of the day saddam is the problem, right? as we're in the 90s and the US care about their image it wouldn't look too good to send the cia in, so why not bomb the place, boost the arms industry and give everyone the impression that we're fighting for peace and democracy at the same time! to be honest it is hard to make sense of the whole situation. If the US had wanted to get rid of saddam they would have done so a long time ago. he's useful as a "demon", so why the whole strike thing now? can anyone offer any insights? samira
