So is the current Iraq war the reason for the 9/11 attacks?

We weren't in Iraq on 9/11/2001.

And you find no disgrace in using that tragic event and those lives as a springboard to further personal agendas and invade a non-combatant sovereign nation?

I have not written a single word in support of the Iraqi conflict.

If you can provide evidence otherwise please post it or feel free to retract your accusations.

In any case most of the slaughter in Iraq today are due to Shiia and Sunni militias killing each other.

What accusations? I simply asked a question -- let's try to keep it real now. The primary topic of this thread is the use of terrorism as a political tool by the current administration, and you chose to introduce the 9/11 event, which led to my obvious, but pertinent question.

Let's read your comment above again. That's a statement that I am justifying the tragedy of 9/11 as a justification for invading Iraq. An editorial on your part masquerding as a question.

If you don't understand the rhetorical implications of your "question" then I can't help you.

No it is a question, which you have chosen to not answer in a rather peculiar and inflammatory manner. Example of proper responses, just for contrast:

A. No, I don't
B. Yes I do
C. I'm not sure
D. (no response)

Labelling a question as an accusation is illogical. I have no idea whether you support our invasion of Iraq or not, and have not suggested that you do or do not, since I have no idea. I simply asked a question that was prompted by your posts, which you are apparently unwilling to answer. That's fine -- lots of questions go unanswered here, but you are the one making accusations and imposing "rhetorical implications" onto a simple question.

I already answered your question. Look 5 posts above where I stated "I have not written a single word in support of the Iraqi conflict."
