I wonder why the bunkers we over ran in the first stages of this war had Chem suits and anti serum kits
supplied to them?
Did they think we were going to use that stuff.
How do I know that it was there, cause I saw it with my eyes.
No it's not complicated at all for some one who's been there and does not have to re-lie on our media
that seems to be encouraging the other side.
have you ever heard of posturing? [8]

alfa, you really need to get over your avitar... Iraq has nothing to do with any of it.. focus please.. OBL!!!
If I were OBL, I wouldn't have believed GW would do my bidding and invade Iraq -- let's face it folks -- GW is nothing short of an Allahsend to OBL.

RE: things are getting a bit whacky down there

I'm your every day, run-of-the-mill counter-puncher by nature. If someone attacks me, the first thing I do is try to ascertain the response my opponent is hoping for, and not deliver it under any circumstance. If someone is trying to make you mad, laugh. If they're trying to make you go left, go right. If they're trying to sucker you into attempting an occupation of a sovereign nation in the ME, well -- you get the idea. Dumb as a rock -- has this not been blatantly obvious from day one?

Oil??? Do I hear oil anyone??? Uh, that would come squarely under the heading of expansionism.

Anyone who still believes that this invasion was actually justified is simply living beyond the bounds of reason. I have heard and continue to hear a lot of cheap excuses, but I've never heard anything that even remotely resembles legitimate cause to unleash this unprovoked invasion upon a sovereign nation (if such a thing is even possible). This was an expansionist fool's errand from day one, and one which will eventually die the miserable death that it's due. If anyone -- anyone -- can relay how this invasion has had a positive impact on their personal lives, I'd love to hear it (Halliburton employees are exempt).
If we use the same reason for the UN for going to war in the Balkans, the war in Iraq would be justify. Saddam did kill a lot of people in Iraq.

There are two staggering differences, and here they are. First, you have the U.N. in one instance and the U.S. in another -- apples and oranges. The second, even more significant difference is this: In one instance, folks in the Balkans actually begged the U.N. for help. In the other, Iraq's neighbors actually begged us to stay away and mind our own business. Had Turkey or the Saudis expressed some level of concern and requested assistance, I might feel very differently. If Iraq was no threat to its neighbors, it was certainly no threat to anyone else outside its own borders. Do you see the difference? It couldn't be any bigger if it blotted out the sun...

So it is Ok to murder millions of people as long as no cares. If you take out all the political reasons there is no difference.

But your post shows how you get upset with name-calling and sarcasm when some disproves your post. I would love to see discussion on here without name-calling and sarcasms.
