On a walk from school, a nine-year-old Iraqi girl was injured by a bombing raid by the U. She had just finished taking a test at school on that afternoon, and she was on her way home when a bomb dropped. She was severely injured and she ending up with a missing arm, and wounded abdominal area and chest. She also had a metal fragment in her skull in which the doctors were afraid to remove it because it might have resulted in her dying . She was thankful for still being alive, and it is really sad to see a young innocent girl get hurt and abused physically and emotionally. Thousands of Iraqis are being killed for what reason? Going to war against Iraq is only not justified, but it would be pointless. Why go to war with a country that does not pose a present danger of mass destruction, and because the country has an unruly leader? Why take their oil from them? Don't you realize that if we go to war, it will cost billions of dollars, dollars we could spend on resources that are needed for priorities at home? Why go to war that will kill thousands of innocent people, not just only people in Iraq, but people in the U.S. and others involved. The U.S. should really think of these questions and concerns, because there are several reasons why.
The reason for going to war against Iraq is not justified. Iraq has made no threats or attacks toward the U.S. They also had nothing to do with Al Quaeda, no Iraqi has threatened for a war, and they had nothing to do with the terrorist attack on September 11. That tragic day should have taught us that we, the U.S., cannot afford to ignore the truth about our use of unprecedented military power to inflict harm on others (www.nomorevictims.org/Letter.html). Going to war should be the last resort of self-defense, a step to be taken when you think the country is endangered. Whether the White House gets permission to go to war or not, they still planned on illegally invading and attacking Iraq.
