  I say YES to war with Iraq
Updated 11 February 2003, 10.52
Shaz thinks war is necessary
Press Packer Shaz thinks that there is no other solution than invading Iraq.

Here he gives his reasons why getting rid of Saddam by force is the only answer to protecting the world of terror attacks.

"I think we should go to war with Iraq for numerous reasons.

First of all, Saddam Hussein is malicious.

He gassed his own people in the past and he killed innocent civilians of neighbouring countries during the Gulf War.

Hide and seek

Second, Iraq is a big country. Because of that weapons can be easily hidden before the weapons inspectors arrive at certain locations.

Weapons can be easily smuggled into and out of Iraq.

George Bush and Britain need to send a message to all terrorists - we are united and we will attack back.

By attacking Iraq, terrorists might think again before attacking.

Finally, Iraq might attack us if we do not attack them.

We might get attacked when we least expect it - it's better to be safe than sorry.

Oil issue

It's not about oil at all, people can think what they like but it's about protecting countries in the world.

It's about Saddam - it's all about the war on terror.

That's why I think we should attack Iraq and Saddam."

Shaz, 14, London
