this, for one. The article isn't very good, but, as usual for K5, the discussion is.

One person points out that there are basically three options we've got with Iraq. (note: iraq. Not Afghanistan. This is a completely *different* middle-eastern country.)

1) Give up and go home. Leave Saddam to his toys and remove all economic sanctions. Which will probably include biological, chemical, and nuclear weapons in a very short while. While I suppose he might be content to sit around at home until he grows old, I wouldn't count on it, judging by his track record.

2) Do what we're doing right now, economic sanctions and all, and watch as Saddam ships out food on the black market instead of feeding the nation. Allow everyone in Iraq to continue starving.

3) Invade. War, deaths. Take out Saddam and either instate a new government or make it part of the US. (probably the first.) Cause much pain and suffering for a short period of time, then, if we do it right, turn the country around and make it better (livable).

Take your pick.

I also include this partially because of a hilarious quote on the problems of extrapolation . . .

"By that logic, women marathon runners will become viable orbital launch systems by the end of the century."

*snicker*

this, however, *is* related to Afghanistan, but is also interesting.

to all those in pain . . .

You in the dark
You in the pain
You on the run
Living a hell
Living your ghost
Living your end
Never seem to get in the place that I belong
Don't wanna lose the time
Lose the time to come

Whatever you say it's alright
Whatever you do it's all good
Whatever you say it's alright
Silence is not the way
We need to talk about it
If heaven is on the way
If heaven is on the way

You in the sea
On a decline
Breaking the waves
Watching the lights go down
Letting the cables sleep

Whatever you say it's alright
Whatever you do it's all good
Whatever you say it's alright
Silence is not the way
We need to talk about it
If heaven is on the way
We'll wrap the world around it
If heaven is on the way
If heaven is on the way
