I realize your comments are directed at one person in particular (which to me has all the hallmarks of a lover's spat), but I also realize it's easy to generalize and suppose that all Americans mindlessly support the workings of their crazy president.

I for one, support the Al Gore position described here:

http://www.cnn.com/2002/ALLPOLITICS/09/23/gore.iraq/index.html

Though Mr. Gore claims to have invented the Internet, he does make some good points at times, and that's why most of us voted for him in the 2000 elections. I believe military force is sometimes necessary in order to defend oneself against an intended threat, but Iraq hasn't threatened us, and in the event that they are secretly developing weapons of mass destruction in violation of the UN agreements, it is up to the United Nations to investigate this and to take the appropriate actions based on their findings. Since Saddam Hussein has agreed to allow the weapons inspectors to return, a war is hardly necessary at this point. As despotic and cruel a leader as he may well be, the United States cannot singlehandedly tell another nation who can run their country, and I don't like the current approach the US is taking toward resolving the situation.

Of course, though I nearly always disagree with the President, I also realize that having the right to disagree and to assert my own opinion is a valuable one that many others across the globe regrettably lack.
