    If you wanna use that big a strawman, go put it out on the field to scare crows away, cause it won't work here.
    I remember when Nam was just advisor's then all of a sudden you were ripped off your surf board and sent into some jungle to kill or be killed. How quickly you libs forget. As far as Iraq goes I guess your theory is let a homicidal murdering thug do his thing if he gets to big and powerful to easily stop. I think we tried that once in Europe with the rise of the Nazi party. How did that work out?

    Why now?

    Why the United States?

    Why not Europe?

    The one term Marxist president Obama said this is in our national interest. What specific interest are we protecting? What would happen if we did not protect this specific national interest?

    Why are all the people who did not see any value into regime change in Iraq all for this splendid little war?

    Why are many of the people who oppose the use of US military force when it benefits us for this little war that will have no effect on the US whatsoever?

    Why does this feel like a diversion?

    Actually, Uganda has a large amount of natural resources (Uganda) such as "Copper, cobalt, hydropower, limestone, salt, phosphate, oil." Cobalt has many uses (Cobalt) (Idaho Cobalt - Cobalt Uses - Sat Oct 15, 2011) as does copper (Uses of Copper | Supply, Demand, Production, Resources)

    Mind explaining to me how President Obama is a Marxist? As far as I can tell, he is a capitalist as his entire economic team was the "Bailout Bunch" (Obama's Bailout Bunch Brings Us More of the Same: Jonathan Weil - Bloomberg)

    on the contrary, there were three interlocking reasons given for that war, and that was indeed one of them.

    you have "capitalism" confused with "corporatism". "capitalism" would have let those large institutions fail.
