Tough questions seeking very truthful answers

I’d like to ask some questions:

What if Bush’s new OK for the pre-emptive use of nuclear weapons leads other countries, such as North Korea, India, Pakistan and Israel, to name just a few, to follow our example in settling their own disputes?

What if the CIA is right and Saddam’s most likely response to invasion will be retaliation with nuclear and chemical weapons?

What if this war on Iraq is nothing more than an attempt for the wealthiest men in America to control one of the richest sources of oil in the world?

What if the War on Iraq unleashes a backlash of terrorism around the globe?

What if the war on Iraq goes on for decades and has more in common with Vietnam, with hundreds of thousands of our men and women coming home in body bags?

What if General Shinseki, U.S. Army chief of staff, and General Jones, commandant of the U.S. Marines, are correct when they say that they “fear that the present war plan dangerously underestimates the risks of attacking Iraq?” (Washington Times)

What if Bush is wrong?

What if the answer to any of these is true?
