: If you guys do not terribly mind, could you present some of your views on Iraq and the impending war? I just wanted to hear from you guys your viewpoints, to see how you guys see it differently or not from others who frequent AINA and beth-suryoyo forums, etc. Thank you.
I view Iraq as a country which was quite advanced in the 70s and 80s... and which unfortunately was dragged and tricked into war with Iran thanks to the US. Then came the persian gulf war where the US ambassador told the Iraqis that the US wouldn't mind if he invaded Kuwait... then 12 years of genocidal sanctions (after the raping/killing of the country during the "war")...
The impending war is nothing but an oil grab and the continued sanctions and bombing are nothing less than genocide.
Just my opinion...
