Almost to a person, my friends and I dislike war, as well as the untimely deaths of so many of our military, other countries military (who have the guts to help secure Iraqi freedom) and the innocent Iraqi people themselves.
That being said, however, I am appalled at the constant criticism by the countries who should be working with the coalition to secure freedom for the Iraqi's. Instead, they fuel anti-war rhetoric (which is really another excuse to trash America), as they continue to turn a blind eye to the plight of the Iraqi people.
I think we all know that if the coalition were to withdraw from Iraq, there would be a slaughter of even more Iraqi's then there is now, until they are once again a subdued and oppressed people. They will probably fight quite hard, though, since so many have had a taste of freedom; the same freedom taken for granted by those who would criticize the involvement of the brave and many Americans, the Australians, the Italians, the Poles, as well as the English.
Big mouths with no backbone, who think only of themselves. It was clear that these once allies, Spain and Germany, should have supported the move against Saddam, as per the continual UN violations. But no, they instead would prefer to ignore the plight of the Iraqi people, just as the US did in the Gulf War, which after the objective of freeing Kuwait from the clutches of the sadistic Saddam Hussien, were responsible, by virtue of the stupid politics of folks sitting on their duffs in comfort and safety, for the slaughter of many, many, many innocent Iraqi's, who fought against Saddam as the Gulf War went on, hoping someone would care more for them then assine politics, and free them from Saddam.
War, huh? What is it good for? Well, sometimes it is good for setting people free.
