Now is the time to take out Saddam Hussein.

The United Nations inspectors’ process is being abused and exploited in order to make light of all efforts by the free world to force Iraq to disclose its true intentions. To procrastinate now would be the same as running away with our tail stuck between our legs.

The United States of America has been described as the richest most powerful nation on earth, and the last remaining super power. With that said, it is our duty — if not our privilege — to defend the right of all people wherever they may be to live without fear.

Let’s face it, whether we like it or not, the United States of America is the last, best hope for the free world.

Saddam Hussein has proven over and over again that egos that blind world leaders sometime go over the line. That line has been crossed by his defiant reluctance to come clean on his despotic ways.

Iraq has more than enough of it’s own people, ready and willing to come in and do a much better job than what they have now. We owe it to these people and to the world to launch an effort worthy of a nation being referred to as a “”super power.””
