I don't follow you. We killed a lot of innocent Iraqis in "Shock and Awe" and then invited all manner of savages there to engage us, as well as murder Iraqis. While they were not Americans, they were there only by an American invitation so "we can fight them over there instead of fighting them over here."

That makes us responsible in my book. Had we never gone into Iraq, we would not have set into action the sequence of events that killed those hundreds of thousands of human beings.

Where did I say that? Man, you just turn out to be more of a fraud every time you post.

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.

I suppose now your going to tell us that and avalanche of cruise missles carrying 2,000 lb warheads only pick out and kill the bad guys, right? Your posts expose you as a total fake.

Jim, this guy is a waste of time, I really think we are talking to a 13 or 14 yr old kid.

I know, it's a nit.
Yeah, you guys always do that to me. The inane posts from that turkey just cried out for it. Tell me bear, seeing how you were or still are an actual Army intelligence analyst, is this guy a fraud or what?
