quality of being humane or human that differentiates
us from animals, took a backseat on this day in
March 20, 2003. The United States under the
administration of George W. Bush along with its
deputy sheriffs, United Kingdom and Australia
officially declared war on Iraq despite not having
the approval of the United Nations.
The U.S pre-war assumptions regarding the war so far
have proved to be nothing but baseless theories. No
masses of Iraqi soldiers are rushing to surrender
nor are there any Saddam's top people defecting at
the first signs of trouble. Turkish leaders were not
as obliging as to give America all it wanted
meanwhile the Allied soldiers were disappointed as
no Iraqi civilians welcome them as liberators.
Instead, Iraqis view them as invaders and a threat
to the sovereignty of their country. Thousands who
are exiles in Jordan have been returning home over
the past week to fight the US and British. One of
these volunteers in fact had a wise observation,
"The U.S hasn't understood that it's not going to be
able to kill Saddam Hussein with this war. For
better or for worse, he has already become a
Bush finally admitted after the onset of the war
that its duration was not predictable and he would
be requesting US$75 bil from Congress, enough to
keep American troops in Iraq for five months.
Meanwhile, Iraqis have no choice but to face a bleak
and uncertain future from the possibility of a
pro-longed war with an increasing number of them
getting killed or wounded. Women will suffer the
most as their roles as both wives and mothers force
them to feel the lost of husbands and sons in
battle, followed by helpless and defenseless
children and senior citizens.
In any war, innocent people become victims or
casualties despite promises by the Allied Forces not
to target civilian areas and to maintain a "clean
war." In southern Iraq, Basra, soldiers were not the
only victims. Two western journalists were killed
along with Iraqi civilians and at least five Syrian
workers when their bus was hit by errant American
missile in western Iraq.
There were many speculations regarding Bush's real
motive to attack Iraq. But at the end of the day, he
might have won the battle but lost the war. With the
eventual return of body bags of American soldiers,
Americans will finally see the futility of war and
live to regret it. Bush may not be re-elected as a
result of this. Out of 500 American senators, only
one has a son in the military therefore the decision
to declare war is not a difficult one.
Hypothetically, if Bush were to have a son or
daughter enlisted in the army, would he be so eager
to go to war?
The attack on Iraq also marks the failure of UN as
an authoritative world body in overseeing matters
such as war. With the Allied Forces unilateral move
after failing to obtain a resolution, it marks the
beginning of the end of the UN and humanity in
