I believe the reason USA want to go to war is not political but economical pressure. It has invested a lot on Army, Military, Air Planes, Submarines, Missiles etc. To continue to get return of investment in needs atleast one country for war in a decade So that it can test it's new weapons on real ground. USA people need to be satisfied that the money army is getting is really used as then the Army can provide big bills on war expenditures so that army can get enough money in future. USA and European countries earn a lot by selling weapons to small countries. To keep the sales up it is required to maintain a war like situation everytime. The Irony is these companies have good influence and power over many Govt organizations. These company gets money from the taxes we pay. To prove that the missiles and ships they have made are of good quality and others should invest in these technologies they require new ways to have wars. Research Expenditure for these weapons can only increase if USA keeps fighting with other countries. So to earn more and more money these weapon companies and army people like to kill innocent people. They never hesitate to drop bombs. The million dollar bomb was made from tax payers money. The Planes they fly is free for them. The people who die are unknown for them. They in end earn more and more. That's one of the reason for USA's going to wars. They never care that the people they are killing are also human beings like us. Who love their family and friends. That's why America is not hesitating killing 200,000 innocent people of Iraq. Can USA tell how many people will die if they don't go to war I believe not more than 100-200. Then Whom does USA want to save after killing 200,000 innocent people. It's the big Weapon Companies and the unemployed Army which needs money from the Taxes we pay.

He just got back in NY from a weekend in DC and told Sukru Sina Gurel (turkey) at the meeting that the United States wants complete and full support for the US' demands on Iraq. Saudi Arabia said over the weekend that they would back the US up if the UN approved of the war against Iraq. Saudia Arabia had great concern over the casualties resulting from an attack on Iraq, but yet now claims to accept it if the UN does? Iraq has agreed to accept UN arms inspectors only if UN lift the sanctions and the US agrees not to attack. Even though this solution is simple, the US still says the UN should not negotiate with Iraq. I would hope the UN would not take the advice of the US and resolve the issue rationally. ~ Anai Rhoads _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
