Funny, I don't recall an official declaration of war. And as I recall, it was the UN that engaged Iraq over Kuwait. You're grasping at straws and making excuses in the absence of reason. Example: reasons are provided before the onset of conflict, excuses are provided afterward. Every reason for invading Iraq has proven fallacious, as are the excuses being provided now.

There is no reason you need to gain knowledge on this matter.....assman will brainwash you.....hell most you sheep are in the rinse cycle.
Brainwashing, hmm, that assumes a lack of free will on the part of human beings, that we are all merely the product of other's suggestions. So who got ahold of you, asswipe?

Established on Ireland, that is. The Irish have historically felt nonplussed on this matter.

Next is the number of troops. The interesting thing about the new general in charge, Gen Petraeus, is that he has a paper trail. After commanding the 101st Airborne he was transferred to head the Army's Counter-insurgency school. He is on record as saying that Iraq needs a minimum of 250,000 more troops to have a successful counter insurgency. He is getting screwed. So much for the generals "getting the troops they asked for"

Congress is having a hard time with 20k more troops, you think you Dems would authorize 250k more(even if we had them?) HARDLY!

Every reason? Please explain. The only single reason that all of you point out is the weapons of mass destruction. They were found however they we "out of date" meaning the mustard gas etc was not as powerful as it once was..... ok so that proved to be misleading but what about the others?

Yes, but don't you think that is a result of the beginning of this war? We were told "cakewalk", "flags and flowers", "Iraq will pay for its own reconstruction". Maybe if Bush had been a better leader, he would have considered the opinions of all the generals who told him we needed 250,000 troops, and the war would have been discussed honestly. But then, Bush would not have got his war through Congress, would he? It looks to me like we were manipulated, not led into this war, I think this is the point Germanstar is trying to make, even though he sucks.
