weapons and chemical weapons are much more dangerous.
There's no proof of weapons. --> We know they have 'em, we know they hide 'em,
and we have tape recordings and photographs. What more is needed? An Iraqi
rocket in Martin Sheen's shorts?
If we invade, Saddam Hussein might use those weapons of mass destruction
against us. --> I thought you said Iraq didn't have them?
But terrorists might attack if we invade Iraq. -->Oh, so if we don't attack
Iraq, terrorists will never strike again?

Grande Place wasn't attacked. The Kremlin wasn't attacked. And the Jerry Lewis

Quick...hurry up...before the bombs start dropping.
This is about American Imperialism. --> So which country do we own? Name our
colonies? What nation sends us their tax dollars? If America was imperialist,
we'd already own the entire world. Who could stand in our way?
This is Blood for Oil. --> The only blood is the Iraqi people tortured, starved
and killed while Hussein builds massive palaces to hide nuclear weapons...all
financed with Iraqi oil. America produces 40% of its oil needs and gets the
remanining 60% from three sources: Mexico, Venezuela and Saudi Arabia. Don't
you think Saddam Hussein would LOVE to sell his oil to the USA?

We're in a war against terrorism. If you don't want to fight the ones who would
murder you and your family in a heartbeat, get the hell out of the way. Go
visit Paris. Or Antwerp. Or Berlin. Or Moscow. And stay there. Forever. But
this time, don't call us when the heathens are at the gates.
