No guage, if we had not gone to Iraq, America would be stronger and better able to repel those who would attempt to gain illegal access to our land and do us harm, and we would not have incurred the number of casualties, deaths and wounded, to our Armed Forces.

If one where to work the probablities, it is obvious we are more likely to be murdered in this country BECAUSE we invaded Iraq. We murdered innocent people who had no WMDs. If I was a child of a murdered parent, or the husband of a murdered wife, I would spend my lifetime planning revenge for theiir murder. We should get down on our knees and beg the people of Iraq to forgive us for our Nazi bitch leaders.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
