ABSTRACT
Presents the writer's views on the U.S. President George W. Bush's plans to invade Iraq on the grounds that Iraqi President Saddam Hussain is an avid supporter of international terrorism and the terrorist organization Al-Qaeda that was responsible for September 11, 2001 strikes in New York. Of the Americans polled by Time/Cable News Network, only 34 percent support the president's decision to invade Iraq with or without the support of the United Nations. There is one view that the only reason President Bush is so passionate about attacking Iraq is to take control of Iraqi oil. Many people who favor President Bush's plans use the events of September 11, 2001 as ammunition against those of us who oppose the war. Those opposing the war are just not convinced that toppling Saddam's regime will wipe out terrorism or the likelihood of another devastating attack on U.S. soil. One cannot squash terrorism when it boils down to a people's impassioned belief, a belief they are willing to die for. Stopping the extremists from enticing youngsters to commit suicide missions and to become martyrs all in the name of God requires a lot more than simply dropping bombs and then swooping in to rebuild a country.
