Is there sufficient reason for
the United States to attack Iraq?

"Waiting for them to attack you is suicide. I think there is a strong history of Saddam (Hussein) using weapons of mass destruction against the Iranians, Kurds and his own people. He has absolute malice for America and shows a history of aggressive violence."

mug Nelson Deshotel, 48,

"I think so. He's (Hussein) been warned quite a few times. With weapons of mass destruction, you can't afford to wait."

mug Shirrell Longeuay, 23,

"I fully agree with the war. I'm really ashamed of a lot of the people protesting the war. It's about freedom, and Saddam Hussein is a tyrannical ruler. Are we supposed to wait until something bigger than Sept. 11 happens?"

mug Ezra Fine, 21,

"I follow the Dalai Lama and his teachings, so I don't condone any military efforts. I believe in the ripple effect. Whenever there is an execution of that many people, we'll feel it here. There'll definitely be a backlash. There's still time for diplomacy. ... If I had my way, I would try to impeach Bush.

"Saddam's inside some underground bunker. He's not going to get hit."

mug Deedee Paaluhi, 44,

"Yes, if that's the only way necessary to stop him (Hussein). If he's hiding something, we need to put a stop to it.

"If nobody else is going to do it, why shouldn't we? Who's to say something else isn't going to fall down like the World Trade Center?"

mug Walter Joao, 62,

"I'm up in the air on that. If they had solid reason based on fact. Sometimes the government just says things. Seeing that they are at an impasse, they just come up with something. This whole thing from the start has had a peculiar ring."

mug Sami Freitas, 25,

"Yeah. Just hearing that he has not complied with the weapons inspectors. What they do have is definitely a threat to the rest of the world. Knowing the history, what he's done to the Kurds and his own people, is scary."
