    When did that happen? How long did that scarey risk last? To paraphrase CATO, if Saddam was such a threat, why are we still alive? Trying to make Saddam a threat that required invading is like trying to make Don Knotts look like Brock Lesner. Good luck with that. I suspect only the faithful, who willingly suspend disbelief will take that ride with you.

    J, it was perfectly clear, and I suspect you see that now that you've re-read it.


    I see you support murderous, thug dictators as long as they are your murderous, thugs. Wonderful....Why do you have so little regard for the lives that Saddam tortured, and snuffed out?

    J, you can do better than this silliness. This is exactly what we did as a country. Saddam was fine as long as he was ours. That is exactly what we did, and with much conservative support I might add. And no one but those who watched Saddam as he killed those people, waited until it was allover, and then, and only then, decided to add war and more death to the misery of the Iraqis. We didn't stop killing, we added to it. On several occassions I have given you the position paper by the human rights organization that wanted Saddam removed but couold not support our action. They did for the reason I mention above. We saved no one; we only added to the death and misery.

    Now you're being silly....If you want to discuss the entire Iraq war yet again, I'd be happy to, but you may want to start its own thread.

    Meaning you have no answer.

    I didn't bring up the topic. But the truth is the truth.

    Wow, How very mature of you....I agree that facts are indeed truth, but you don't have a corner on truth with your opinion.

    And just what was Saddam's usefulness to the US over the past 20 years?

    You really expect these clowns to do it in less time?

    But, hey! Am I the only one that isn't surprised that the bad guys went on the down low, until U.S. forces moved out, then decided to get off the hook?
    Last I checked our Founders didn't need a foreign power on our land for those 12 years.

    Serious problems arise when murderous thugs are replaced by even more murderous, and religiously fanatical, thugs.
