Should we be in Iraq?
Should we be in Iraq? Let’s analyze this.
Ask this 40-year-old terrorist captured in England if it was easier getting into Iraq or America to detonate his car bombs and suicide belts. Or we could ask any one of the thousand terrorists living in France or other parts of Europe if they’d rather attempt to enter Iraq through Syria to kill an American or would they like to make it past our airport security, which trust me won’t even let you bring a jagged penny on board.
Better yet, just look at the statistics that state most suicide bombers are Saudi and in fact that less than 20 percent are Iraqi. Let’s ask Zarqawi about these claims.
"The infidels once again are claiming that foreign fighters are responsible for initiating the attacks and an increase [in foreign fighters] is the true danger," the Zarqawi said in a May 10 Internet posting. He added, "who is the foreigner . . .? You (Americans) are the ones who came to the land of the Muslims from your distant corrupt land."
Now back to the question: Should we be in Iraq? The answer is yes.
Forget the reason of why we went. Just think about this: the war in Iraq is keeping us from another September 11. If we don’t fight these Saudis, Syrians, Euro Arabs in Iraq, then where will we fight them? On our own soil, and I’m sorry, but I could not stand to see one of our schools hit with a suicide car bomb. I have lived through the Oklahoma City bombing, September 11 and saw more dead bodies in Iraq than ever even dreamed of. Many of the bodies I saw were precious, little children who were just in the wrong place at the wrong time. It’s sad enough that these vicious terrorists will kill fellow Muslims. We cannot let them kill anymore of our civilians.
And if you don’t think the terrorists working in Iraq aren’t thinking about hitting a church, hospital or school, then think back to October when we found computer disks containing blueprints to U.S. Schools. It’s proof that Iraqi insurgents are looking into their next big hit on America. So, would you rather read about a car bomb in Iraq or on a U.S. school?
To add to this argument, I will use Zarqawi’s own words, “You are the ones who came to the land of the Muslims from your distant corrupt land.” Well if this is the case, then why haven’t they declared war on Qatar or UAE, two Muslim countries that import non-Muslim workers for manual labor and have very large Caucasian populations? The fact is, the insurgents hate Americans and will kill us anywhere. And you know what? We are also freeing a group of people who were absolutely miserable under Saddam.
As for, “when do we leave?” Well, we’ve had at least 30,000 soldiers in Korea since the Korean War and even more in Germany. We’ve also had soldiers in Saudi (not anymore) and Kuwait since Desert Storm. We must stick around and finish the job because the fight will come to our soil if we don’t take the fight to the enemy.
