Did you just say that Jordan and Syria asked us to invade Iraq? Go to bed, Drew -- it's late.

No I said they didn't; I must have read your post wrong, or the other way around.

What's next, a preemptive strike against Bermuda? Do you really believe Iraq was on the verge of invading the U.S.?
Israel is an ally. So the invasion of Iraq is also well within your umbrella of justifiable wars.

In case you did not know, Germany and Japan were allies in World War II according to a signed treaty between them. Japanese did attack us in the Pearl Harbor bombing raid on 7 December 1941. On the following day, FDR declared a war on Japan. On 11 December 1941 Hitler, on behalf of Germany declared war on the USA. That's how we got involved in WW II. Nothing preemptive about it.
