Speaking for myself, no, I do not agree with war without UN support. As an individual I feel this war is inevitable and I don't believe President Bush gives a rat's dookie what I think.
I just hope and pray that lost lives will be kept small. I hate to say it but perhaps when we get hit hard with casualties maybe THEN the seriousness of international diplomacy and the true function of the UN will come clear to everyone.
Whose to say this war will form a true and open alliance with our biggest threat - Al-Qaida? Then again, the alliance may have been there all along.
I just have the feeling that the WTC attack was just a small sample of what is to come. Not one living person in the United States has been through a war on our home soil. Will President Bush be the one to usher this in? Time will tell.
