  • Which 'war' are you talking about. Read the history books. There have ALWAYS been wars in the middle east.

  • There has been war in the middle east as long as people have been organized into societies - about 9 thousand years. Actually longer when you consider the fighting from tribal organization when everyone was nomadic in the thousands of years leading up to then. We will never be "out" of it. We may rotate troops in and out, but we will always have some sort of military presence there, whether it's in Kuwait or Afghanistan or anywhere else we agree to set up bases in the future.

  • For a long time. Those people have been doing this for years and I see no end. Even if we had not gone to Iraq we would be there eventually. At least Saddam and his sons are not free to run around randomly shooting people on the streets. Women are not kidnapped by those three and tortured and raped then killed. My brother was part of a team that found videos of Saddam and his sons exploits. There are hundreds of tapes and they did this to thousands of women.

  • Until the Lord returns and wipes out Israel's enemies. There will never be peace over there. Israel will continually be a target of hatred by the terrorists who wish to destroy them.
