"has The War With Iraq Started??"

  1. Todays headlines read:

    PRES. SAYS WAR BEFORE YEAR'S END

    I was listening to Bill O'Reilly today & he was discussing this with ? somebody..
    Anyway, he caught my attention, because he said,

    "Don't be silly. The war has already started. Everybody

    knows that. The State Dept. releases reports every day

    that we are bombing their desert encampments. We've been

    doing it every day for a month."

    I was thinking about that. I HAVE been reading in the newspaper

    of our planes bombing Iraq ....reading it every day. DUH !!

    Because they weren't bombing Baghdad, it didn't quite sink in.

    So, I guess the "war IS on."

    The only thing I don't understand is why does it have to be now?? NOW??? This time last year & all during the holidays,

    we were bombing and killing all those thousands of Afghanistani

    civilians.

    Why do we have to spend this Thanksgiving and Christmas with

    war news when it wouldn't make a hill of beans difference if we started the "war" in January.

    THE ESTIMATE IS 40,000 IRAQI CIVILIANS WILL BE KILLED.

    Why have two consecutive Christmases of war and death and bombing innocent people.......if it isn't absolutely necessary?

    We've been bombing them on and off for years. I don't see a huge difference in that regard.

    The first war with Iraq never ended and is still going on. The original congressional approval for it, as well, never expired.
