Since Saddam did not have any WMDs, can you explain to me how he was in violation of UN resolutions?

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.

We wasted lives and treasure on people who don't appreciate it.
It's called Nazism. And the trash that ended up being taken out was the Republican Party.

He threatened Israel, and that's all there is to it to warrant an invasion.

The US whacks a few carefully targeted Islamonutjobs and the headline reads US MURDERS!

Waste of breath, they still won't get it.

Stu, I may kick my own brother's ass, beat the shit out of him, etc, but if you ever touch my brother, I would make you suck the end of my AK-47 and I would pull the trigger very happily. Now do you understand?

Nothing close to what we spend on Israel and get absolutely NOTHING in return. At least the Pakistanis are doing our work, the work that shouldn't and wouldn't even have needed to be done if it hadn't been for Israel in the first place. Blowback from supporting Israel too great.

shall I spell it out for you?


I think I must.

American drone kills 6 civilians.

Pakistan army kills 700 enemy forces.

do they equal each other? no.
do they have anything in common? no.
are they in the same war? maybe.
do you need to point out an obscure article to vilify a foreign country's actions . Yes.

you are a gem.
