True or False? A Crash- appraisal of the American logic in the War on Iraq

Written by Nevine Al Seidi

Before I start delivering my views to you onrepparttar subject ofrepparttar 126033 war in Iraq, I would like to confirm thatrepparttar 126034 word "American" is used here inrepparttar 126035 sense ofrepparttar 126036 American administration and policy, not inrepparttar 126037 sense ofrepparttar 126038 nation and its people.

Many complicated arguments took place recently discussingrepparttar 126039 legitimacy of waging war byrepparttar 126040 "Land of Freedom" onrepparttar 126041 "Land of Abraham". Many innocent citizens ofrepparttar 126042 world seem to buy into obvious fallacies. Please allow me to (storm-brain) you forrepparttar 126043 reality of this war with very basic True or False questions.

The reason for America crossing a few continents and seas with its super impressive missiles to seize a foreign country and change its government is an act of kindness meant to freerepparttar 126044 Iraqi people from their dictator ruler. What do you think? To help you marking this as "True" or False", I will ask you a few questions here. Who hasrepparttar 126045 right to label a ruler a dictator, a foreign ruler or his own people? Has any one authority a right to displace a ruler of a foreign country even by asking him ( verbally) to leave his home in 48 hours? Can a war costing trillions of dollars and hundreds of American and British lives be a justified price forrepparttar 126046 head of any "foreign" ruler?

Another reason for bombing a country three continents away is to rid its neighbours from its malicious threat using "total-destruction" weapons "in case" that country decides to go to war. That ethicality might be anything but "foreign" torepparttar 126047 American mind. Yet, it can only be a valid argument if America is planning to "become" a neighbour. Don't you think? And perhaps, America is more qualified to knowrepparttar 126048 interest ofrepparttar 126049 neighbours more than they themselves do. Right? Did I forget to ask whether Israel is probably a neighbour? Withrepparttar 126050 same "total-destruction" weapons? But Israel has a sole right to own certain missiles it might need to defend itself with in caserepparttar 126051 terrorists-nationals ask for their land back. Almost forgot!

Americqa, Jihad is Coming!

America, Jihad is Coming! By nevine Al Seidi |

Friday prayers onrepparttar 28th March lasted for hours in all mosques of Cairo ( and all Islamic countries) pushing Arabs for Jihad. Jihad, is fighting inrepparttar 126032 name of Godrepparttar 126033 enemy of God. The concept of Jihad ( Arabic for Struggle) lies inrepparttar 126034 belief ofrepparttar 126035 irrelevance of human life next torepparttar 126036 interest ofrepparttar 126037 land andrepparttar 126038 people. Any true Muslim believes in Jihad, be that a member of Al Qaeda, a member of Hizbullah or a member of a football team. I understand how difficult it is torepparttar 126039 Western mind to comprehendrepparttar 126040 idea of sacrificing your own life for an idea, a belief, or God. Inrepparttar 126041 West, whererepparttar 126042 culture is about celebrating life and preserving it against all odds and gods, suicide attacks are merely incomprehensible. Commenting onrepparttar 126043 Iraqi suicide bomber who lured four American soldiers to his cab handing them a bomb that killed him with them received a typical comment from Capt. Valles. He said: " I don't understand what motivated this guy to kill himself. To me, this is not an act of war. It is terrorism.. a man in a civilian vehicle killing himself at a checkpoint". Nicknaming Jihad terrorism is very unlikely to make it go away. As long as there is Islam on this globe, Jihad inrepparttar 126044 name of it will live. No amount of threats, bombs, deprivation, destruction, so-called liberation wars or name-calling will stop it. The only thing that can stop Jihad is to back off from Islamic territory. Trust me on this one! In Iraq, civilians are inventing ways of taking American and British life. Incredulous of such human sacrifices, both American and British media insist thatrepparttar 126045 Iraqi army fight in civilian attire! The fact is that even women, housewives from villages are fightingrepparttar 126046 war withrepparttar 126047 Iraqi army which exceeds 1.5 million persons! You probably have heard of Mayssoon Hameed who shot an enemy tank using an RBJ she never used in her life. She became a national symbol in and outside Iraq. Call her a terrorist if it makes you any happier. Arabs are all Mayssooons, all terrorists to borrow your diction. The danger thatrepparttar 126048 American forces in Iraq is facing is that they are fighting 26 million Iraqis on their territory that covers desert land, villages and towns and cities. They are not fighting Saddam and his government. Those 26 millions happen to bearrepparttar 126049 nationality of descendants ofrepparttar 126050 Prophet. In emergency time, they are bound to act as one againstrepparttar 126051 enemy , no matter what sort of differences existed among them.
