The Big Picture




There has been a question going around more and more about Iraq. And the question is, why Iraq? Why not another country?

Well other than the things I've already gone over, things like Saddam, There is an even more important reason for why of all countries we are in Iraq.

It's a strategic advantage. Iraq is right in the center of the Middle East, bordering countries like Syria, Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Jordan. Most of the countries of the middle east, not to mention places where terrorism is at large. And not only that but Afghanistan borders Pakistan and Iran. We've picked the two best countries strategically.

Lets go over why it's good strategically.

The first reason is the fact that we are luring the terrorists out of their caves to go to Iraq. And there is a better chance of them coming to Iraq because they are close to it.

But why is it a good idea to lure them to Iraq? As of now our military is not in "enemy" territory. We can set up camps, traps, and other things without fear of Iraqis stopping us. If we aren't in enemy territory, then we have an upperhand.

If this war is going to really take down terrorism, then being in neutral grounds is the way to do it.

Some people will say that when we leave, the Iraqis will be left with a bunch of terrorist to take care of. Not true, they're mostly here because of us, and when we leave, they will too. And I know some are trying to kill Iraqis to, but by the time this war is finished the terrorism will be less of a threat and the Iraqi police will be completely ready.

People will also ask me, so if terrorism is worse in places like Iran or Syria, then why are we in Iraq? Because Iraq was not big on terrorism and it was easier to make neutral ground than any of the other countries. Then those terrorists will come into Iraq in a far less overwhelming way, not to mention we have the upperhand by being in the neutral ground.

So that's why strategically Iraq was a good choice.

    Another point is that while North Korea has, I'm sure, WMDs, not one country has in recent history used WMDs to annhialate a whole chunk of it's population. Not that other dictatorships aren't worth taking out, but that does kind of put it on a whole other level because it showed he was willing to use them ruthlessly.

    Way to go you studenten. Your vigor reminds me of my studenten days, my sailor days, and my kids days years ago.

    You have my admiration.

    Keep up the work, cody, rebekah, bushcheney08.

    Give some thought to ROTC when considering college plans. The country needs fine minds like yours in charge of our security.

    I salute you.

    How do I do it? I get FAR less work to do than last year.

    Not to mention I'm a procrastinator and I do my blogging first and the work I have to do at the last minute...

    And I don't do the whole "hang out" with friends thing too much. If I'm seeing a friend there's a purpose to it.

    All of my free time goes to politics. Blogging, talk radio, Fox news, etc.

    I'm an abnormal teenager, lol.

    Your mean Aunt.
