    TRYING TO HELP - by W. Wayne Schields of Wichita Falls

    All the rhetoric on whether or not we should go to war against
    Iraq has got my insane little brain spinning like a roulette wheel. I
    enjoy reading opinions from both sides but I have detected a hint of confusion.

    As I was reading the paper recently, I was reminded of the best
    advice someone ever gave me. He told me about the KISS method (Keep It Simple, Stupid!) so, with this as a theme, I'd like to apply this theory for those who don't quite get it. My hope is that we can simplify things a bit and recognize a few important facts.

    Here are 10 things to consider when voicing an opinion on this Important
    issue:

    1) Between President Bush and Saddam Hussein ... Hussein is the bad guy.

    2) If you have faith in the United Nations to do the right thing keep
    this in mind, they have Libya heading the Committee on Human Rights and
    Iraq heading the Global Disarmament Committee. Do your own math here.

    3) If you use Google search and type in "french military victories,"
    your reply will be "did you mean french military defeats?"

    4) If your only anti-war slogan is "no war for oil," sue your school
    district for allowing you to slip through the cracks and robbing you of
    the education you deserve.

    5) Saddam and Bin Laden will not seek united nations approval before
    they try to kill us.

    6) Despite common belief, Martin Sheen is not the president. He plays
    one on t.v.

    7) Even if you are anti-war, you are still an "infidel!" and Bin Laden
    wants you dead, too.

    8) If you believe in a "vast right-wing conspiracy" but not in the
    danger that Hussein poses, quit hanging out with the Dell computer dude.

    9) We are not trying to liberate them.

    10) Whether you are for military action or against it, our young men and
    women overseas are fighting for us to defend our right to speak out. We
    all need to support them without reservation.
    :cool:

    Umm... no comment.

    Okay, so Bush asked permission. But he didn't listen when they said 'no'.

    Damn. :D

    So, what are we trying to do?

    I indeed support the troops. I do not support the politics. And I am certainly exercising my right to speak out. The founding fathers fought for the right to speak against the government. Amen to that.

    Ah. Well, that explains it.

    Nice how he says it's things to consider when voicing an opinion, yet it's opinion in itself.

    I'd like to point out that we rescued France from occupation by Germans twice. They have no obligation to help us out in an offensive war. I'm sure they'd help us if we were invaded.

    Not all of us from Texas are militant hot-heads like Train, though I admit, his ilk are in the majority of this miserable hell-hole of a state...

    Fortuantely, I live in a island of calm, a bastion of rational thought and logic, and an oasis of tolerance.

    I didn't get that reply. I must've mistyped it.
