War: U.S. must take the lead

After reading Ann Gerikie's letter (Watch out for retribution) I'd like to remind Ann that the reason Saddam was able to wiggle his way out of U.N. sanctions and re-build himself was because he was able to present himself as a victim in the first place and that people like Bill Clinton, the liberal left and many countries fell for it.

Bill Clinton ignored then refused to get up the guts to put Saddam in his place and now I may have to watch my friends go and do what I was part of 11 years ago. That is, the most powerful and heavily armed nation on earth taking the lead to beat Saddam back into his jar because the world doesn't have the guts to do it

Ask yourself this question, do you want this man armed with nuclear and chemical weapons?
