    that is the point you keep missing
    sadam's military - and any threat it posed - was contained
    the iraq war was one of choice
    and the shrub - at dick's urging - stupidly chose to go to war
    Obviosuly, someone believed that the Iraqi Army did pose a threat to someone, or else there would have been no need for the no-fly zones.

    Besides exhibiting that you do not understand why we had the no fly zones, what is the purpose you being in this debate then?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Because it's so much fun to watch Libbos make asses of themselves.

    Well, you didn't do that. You might look at the possibility that you made yourself look foolish. But, if you admit you have no point, I'm moving on.

    and as you have noted, sadam's military was contained. it posed NO threat since it was effectively contained. and thanks again for the previous agreement regards such containment

    Make do you insist on making false claims? I never made any of those comments.

    You don't have a clue what you are talking about. When you have read United Nations Security Council Resolution 688, come back and play again. The NFZ had nothing to do with containing the great Iraqi threat to other nations because that threat was destroyed in the Persian Gulf War. My son was part of the effort that destroyed it.
