[COLOR=Red]John Smith [/COLOR]was a homeowner in the [COLOR=Magenta]Oceanland [/COLOR]neighborhood. [COLOR=DarkOrange]Sam Hartman[/COLOR] lived several blocks away from [COLOR=Red]John[/COLOR], however still in [COLOR=Magenta]Oceanland[/COLOR]. [COLOR=DarkOrange]Sam’s [/COLOR]direct neighbor was [COLOR=Yellow]Justin Thomas. [/COLOR][COLOR=yellow]Justin [/COLOR]and [COLOR=Red]John [/COLOR]are very close friends and co-workers.
One fateful day [COLOR=DarkOrange]Sam [/COLOR]decided to break into [COLOR=Yellow]Justin’s [/COLOR]house and kill half of [COLOR=yellow]Justin’s [/COLOR]large family. [COLOR=Red]John[/COLOR], being a friend, ran to [COLOR=Yellow]Justin’s [/COLOR]aid and drove [COLOR=DarkOrange]Sam [/COLOR]out. He then went on to attack [COLOR=darkorange]Sam [/COLOR]to ensure this would not happen again.
After this incident, [COLOR=Red]John [/COLOR]and [COLOR=Yellow]Justin [/COLOR]appealed to the [COLOR=DarkOrchid]neighborhood board,[/COLOR] the police, and the courts. They came to [COLOR=Cyan]Agreement A[/COLOR]: that Sam could continue living in [COLOR=Magenta]Oceanland [/COLOR]but had to give all his guns, knives, and other weapons to the police within 30 days.
Two weeks later, [COLOR=Red]John’s [/COLOR]house was raided by a [COLOR=Navy]neighbor of Sam’s[/COLOR], and a couple of [COLOR=Red]John’s [/COLOR]kids were killed. While [COLOR=DarkOrange]Sam [/COLOR]had nothing to do with this, the neighborhood continued to watch [COLOR=darkorange]Sam [/COLOR]closely.
After the 30 days of [COLOR=Cyan]Agreement A[/COLOR] were up, [COLOR=DarkOrange]Sam [/COLOR]had yet to forfeit (or show prove of disposal of) all his weapons. After being attacked already, and with [COLOR=darkorange]Sam’s [/COLOR]violation of [COLOR=Cyan]Agreement A[/COLOR], [COLOR=Red]John [/COLOR]couldn’t risk it anymore and (without the [COLOR=darkorchid]board's [/COLOR]consent)decided to go on the offensive and run [COLOR=DarkOrange]Sam [/COLOR]out of town along with hold down all of [COLOR=darkorange]Sam’s [/COLOR]family that had been involved in other neighborhood scuffles. While the [COLOR=darkorchid]neighborhood board[/COLOR] made the agreement, they did not uphold it. The risk to [COLOR=Red]John [/COLOR]was too great not to act.

As you know, this story is completely false. Many of you, by now, have probably gathered that it is a metaphor for the Iraq War.
[COLOR=Red]-John Smith: United States[/COLOR]
[COLOR=magenta]-Oceanland: Earth[/COLOR]
[COLOR=darkorange]-Sam Hartman: Iraq[/COLOR]
[COLOR=yellow]-Justin Thomas: Kuwait[/COLOR]
[COLOR=Gray]-Break In; Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait[/COLOR]
-Aid: Operation Desert Storm
[COLOR=darkorchid]-Neighborhood Board: United Nations[/COLOR]
[COLOR=cyan]-Agreement A: United Nations Security Council Resolution 1441[/COLOR] ([url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UN_Security_Council_Resolution_1441[/url])
-Raid: Attack on September 11th
[COLOR=navy]-Neighbor of Sam’s: Afghanistan[/COLOR]
-Offensive: War on Terror

I am sure 99% of the people in here are strongly opposed to the Iraq War. Of course, I understand this. War and death are never the desired means, however, sometimes are unavoidable. The possesion WMD's in Iraq was not necessarily (for me, anyways) why we went to war…the violation of the resolution was. The burden was on Iraq to prove they disposed of their WMD’s…something they refused to do. The risks to everyone increased dramatically.

I am a VERY open-minded person and would like to hear why this and my thinking is wrong. Believe me, I am FAR from perfect and could be dead wrong on this. I wish to hear everyone’s thoughts. Of course, it would be appreciated not be aggressive or offensive with your replies.
