Is Micro pod a a a a i a Nae Best available copy we or 1 n Ink by Lynn Brisendine Middle age is that difficult time Between juvenile delinquency and senior citizenship when you have to take care of yourself. Quot or. President arc you after Saddam Hussein Quot a reporter queried immediately after the resident spoke to the nation tuesday morning. President Bush ignored the shouted question and simply walked Back into the White House. But the question lingered and was restructured in Many minds As Quot or. President How can you not go after the iraqi madman Saddam must face the world and be made to stand responsible for his crimes against humanity. President Bush is right. President Bush has been right All along. And we can share Pride in our president and our military leaders who have waged War As never before. They have overwhelmed a supposedly competent enemy armed with High tech weapons an enemy which was Battle hardened and posed much danger. Our Side or at least most of our Side will emerge As winners of the War. Now we must concentrate on trying to win the peace. But for now lets take a Little time for ourselves and enjoy this huge Victory. The winners the United states of America. We fought a smart War using brains More than brawn but showing enough brawn to get the Job done. Our High tech weaponry coupled with courageous soldiers have shown the world what an awesome Power we can become if need be. % the egyptians have fought Side by Side with our troops and have backed our moves in both the Battles and the politics. They will reap rewards As the kuwaitis utilize the labor Force of Egypt providing the nation on the Nile with a needed boost in its Economy. Hic syrians jumped into the fray with glee. They have helped defeat a major enemy of theirs. Now we must be wary of the syrians for they now become the Arab Power in the Region. And they can turn in an instant As easily As the winds shift. The saudi arabians saved their country their oilfields and their wealth. Now they must rid themselves of us As soon As possible. The infidels must not stay in the holy land any longer than absolutely necessary. The israelis Are perhaps the people who gained the most out of the War. They have sat Back and watched a major enemy Tom to pieces. And they did not have to use any of their weapons their troops or become politically embroil Dnn a no win situation for the jewish nation. The British the italians and the French deserve our thanks and Praise for actually proving their Friendship As Loyal allies. A the germans and the japanese. They retain their source of Petroleum and they did not have to get their hands dirty doing it. The germans and the japanese should pay much More for a War that benefited them immensely. The big losers the iraqi people have suffered the worst bombing Campaign since Wii. They have lost thousands of their citizens in the trenches and they have lost most of the country s Infra Structure. Some experts believe it will take the iraqis 40 years to rebuild their Nason. And they continue to be big losers As Long As they kowtow to a thug like Saddam. The jordanians continue to be Wishy Washy people caught Between a ro6k and a hard place and making die wrong decision More than once. We May not take reprisals but you can Wager the saudis kuwaitis and syrians will not forget so easily. The kuwaitis have fought to regain a ruined nation. Their cities have been sacked their people killed raped tortured and terrorized. They come Back to a land on fire polluted and ruined out of revenge and hatred. But the biggest winners of All Are our troops who have emerged victorious. So few died but still so High a Price to pay. We await your return. Commissioners renew emerge care inc.
