In the next few hours, a savage pre-emptive attack will commence on Iraq; I say this with a huge sigh. This situation has come about because of inept political manoeuvring and a shortsighted view of the Middle East. I know I have stirred emotions on this site some of it intended some done with innocent intent. I still cannot support in anyway shape or form our actions in the Gulf region. BUT. I do hope all the forces come home safe, as much as I have demonstrated my opinion against using force, and our forces not being used, I fully understand that they are the pawns of the fools, and the tools of the shameless suits. I have debated with many on this site the rights and wrongs of this episode of our history. What I have found is most and I do mean most, fully understand and to a certain amount agree with my thoughts as to why we are where we are today. My only fear now is that as the killing starts, an escalation develops throughout the region, where Muslims even in agreeance with the military action, start to see killing of innocents, which without doubt will happen, this may change opinion, the same as if planes full of bodies start to arrive on our shores. All I can now do is hope that the invasion is short and the fighting is not confined to cities and streets. My last thought goes to the future, as promised will the world be a safer place after Iraq has been conquered, I doubt it , that is the lie and shame Bush and Bliar will have to face.
