    Are you not aware that most of the suicide bombers in Iraq ware Saudi's? Just like the ones that attacked us on 9/11. You are aware that no Iraqis attacked us right?

    You need to read up on the Persian Gulf war. We destroyed completely Iraq's military capability to invade Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, much less be a threat to us.

    ouch
    yes
    additional documentation that dicknbush's war was misguided
    instead of going in and eradicating our terrorist enemy and then immediately leaving
    the neocons instead diverted our resources and our focus to iraq, in an unnecessary war
    those additional, needless casualties are entirely the result of the stupidity of the bush regime
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    If that were true, there wouldn't have been a need for a, "no-fly", zone.

    BTW, who were those troops we were fighting in 2003? The Iraqi Army, perhaps?

    That was the attitude back in the 30's and in the 90's. How did that turn out for us??
