Open discussion about the war July 31, 2007

Posted by Kilgore Trout in Uncategorized.

This is an open threat for anyone who would like to discuss in as reasonable as possible manner the issue of the Iraq war. I had essentially considered this website dead but I will open up for this to see if I can get a dialog going. This is a highly emotional issue from all sides but lets do our best to keep things civilized. Thanks.

An open threat? My my! Just kidding. Glad to see this blog exists, and I hope more people stop by. I will hopefully have some time to post a bit more soon, but for now, I will just let you know that I am a former Elmiran, currently in law school – though I am working in New York City for the Summer. Thanks again for the blog!

yeah I started this a while back then sort of ran outta time so it drifted by the way-side but it seems like an issue worthy of my time (understatement) so I’m bringing it back.

I hope to hear back from you, and good luck with Law School.

To get the ball rolling I will say that I have opposed this war since the moment it was suggested. When my government told me that Saddam had WMD’s I said no he doesn’t. Then I was called a terrorist. When I was told that Saddam was linked to Al Qaeda I said no he isn’t, Bin Laden hates Saddam. Then I was called a terrorist. When I was told that Iraq hates us for our freedom I said no, most of them don’t hate us but those who do hate us because we keep killing their people (now days though more and more of them do hate us). Then I was really called a terrorist. So far my scorecard of educated guesses has been far better than our very well informed government. I repeatedly said that I have been called a terrorist sympathizers only to demonstrate that language like that is not going to sway my opinion in the least.

So how do we leave? I say we get out as quickly as humanly possible but I can understand the arguments against it. I’m not opposed to temporarily pulling back to Kuwait so that we can respond immediately if the Iraqi government requests aid for specific purposes.

In case anyone is concerned that I will delete posts I disagree with, well I guess you’ll have to trust me when I say that I opened this site back up just for this conversation so I really have no desire to stifle anyone’s comments, although I reserve that right if people really get out of hand, but I don’t think that should be a problem.

So there we go, I hope this is an issue that people care enough about that we can talk because apathy is the worst position of all.
