My theory:
It was late at the Pentagon, hot and humid, but a gustly rain-soaked breeze have sprayed the hand written papers in the copy tray by the court yard facing window. The briefing note was soaked. That night the note presented a conumdrum - Was there a fourth letter in the final line - was it a "Q" or a smudged "n" the duty keyboard typist mused - I could ring up the British Inteligence co-ordinator - naw its even later over there he thought
and Donald wants the briefing. So the note finished
"... and that is why we know there are WMD in Iraq."
Luckily for Belfast that typist was sure there was a fourth letter...

I was pretty sure that the events of 9/11 set the stage for the war on terrorism. It seems odd to declare war on something as intangible as terror, but we don't live in the 1900's - the enemy doesn't reside within neat little lines on a map anymore. Basically, anyone who commits acts of terror or supports those that do can be considered the enemy. The allies, therefore, are everyone else in the world who thinks similarly. There happen to be a lot of them, it's not just the USA (even though we were the victims of the most vulgar such attack in the history of mankind).

What I'm saying, in reference to your commentary, is that it's careless and irrational to blame America for each and every death in Iraq since the war began. I'm not suggesting that the USA hasn't been responsible for any such deaths. I'm also not suggesting that this stop you or the Michael Moore's of the world from doing so, I'm just saying it's careless and irrational to carry on that way. Whatever point you're trying to make is getting squelched by the ludicrous nature of your comments. In essence, you're your own worst enemy in this regard.

Not everyone will just roll over to your way of thinking because you want them to. I'm not closed-minded, but I don't believe everything I read/hear and I'm not cynical or delusional enough to believe in such things as "vast right-wing conspiracies" or "blood-for-oil", etc. I don't believe that our elected officials exist purely to screw us and everyone else in the world. That's not to say that this isn't what's happening, it's just that I find it implausible as it pushes healthy skepticism into an unhealthy area. Lots of this type of energy could be directed to far more fruitful endeavors...plainly you have more of it than I do (I just happen to be a fast typist and a good speller most of the time).

Nice try, QBNCGAR...

...but trying to bring common sense, rational thought, healthy skepticism and good grammar skills to the OT forum
is like bringing seven-course meals to a neighborhood weenie roast.
