Hello Michael!

100% agreed.
Here's what I am wondering as well:
Since most of the political world agrees that Saddam must go (for whatever reasons), then why dear God do they need to bomb the place to smithereens? I am pretty darn sure that (heh, yeah like I can be sure of such things... but anyways) if they all agree "ok let's take him out", this could be done with ONE casualty.

I see ONE way for the Bush administration to save face at this point: all the massive troop deployments in the area and all the posturing et al are a smokesceen. Let Saddam think they're gonna destroy the whole place. Then, one night, send in the Delta Force, or the highly trained British Commandos, and *pop*. End of story. I mean hey this is what America is used to no? Hollywood tells us this is the way! Or were all those movies lies and we have to kill hundreds of thousands of people, destroy an entire nation (one of the oldest on earth I might add) to get one guy?

I would like to believe we are past the era of carpet bombings... the death and destruction of Dresden, Iwo Jima, Berlin, Tokyo.. and I don't even want to think about Hiroshima and Nagasaki...

Dammit Sly?! Arny?! Bruce?! There has to be ONE of you guys left with the balls to do this? We're all behind you! Especially if it means saving thousands!

No BlockBuster tonight my friends. :(
