    Because we spent 4,487 lives on this. This is not what we wanted for our payment.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    Then maybe we should have done the smart thing....

    1. Just Assassinated Hussein and been done with it.

    OR

    2. Nuked the entire worthless country back even further into the stone age and been done with it.

    Either way there are no dead American soldiers and the same result has been accomplished.

    Thoughts like your second one make me glad that you are the only Tigger. However, I do agree with your first one. Why disguise what we were trying to accomplish in Iraq with a war when we could of just shot the bastard.
    Hail to the King baby!

    You have to realize something very simple here.... I hold the value of the life of a single American above the value of every non-American in the world. You come over here and attack this country and its citizens, I'm all for your country and your people disappearing in a glowing green cloud. On the other hand, three american kids wander across the border from Iraq into Iran and get caught.... Do whatever the hell you want with them. Try them. Find them guilty of espionage. Execute them. Whatever. Wouldn't have happened if they were were they should have been (home, here in the good 'ol USA).

    Definitely. The War in Iraq was fought to Kill Saddam Hussein for One Reason and One Reason Only.... The fact that Hussein was part of a plot to attempt to assassinate the first President Bush.

    Personally I believe had we left 7 years ago, 5 years ago, 3 years ago or now the outcome would be about the same. Like Vietnam, we stayed until the public just tired of it. Only then did a President have the balls to end it. Only when public opinion was solidly over 50% against the war did Obama end it, rather than ending it when he promised he would while campaigning.
