    And we all know WHO is in control of the US congress dont we ladies and gentlemen

    The IRaq war has cost the US thousands of soldiers and injured about 100,000 military personell, and resulted in the slaughter of over 1.4 million Iraqi civilians - about half of which were children and the elderly.

    What did Iraq do to the USA again?

    Care to explain?
    Until we send that skeeter's entire fleet to the bottom. Our submarine fleet, alone, would make short work of the Iranian navy.

    It is not the US' responsibility to police the world, nor are we, quite frankly, in any position to do so.
    When people are being slaughtered in the streets for speaking out against their government, I'd say the time is now. I disagree with your position on the same grounds that I disagree with 'some women can be beaten because they like it that way' (S&M being a different thing).

    PERFECT!

    What were you told were the reasons the USA had to invade Iraq?

    well I served in the British army so not sure what the American army was saying but my Army was saying right " lets go get this bastard"

    You made the claim so you should provide links to substantiate it. That is just proper etiquette.

    That's happening in dozens of countries all over the world. Should we just invade them all?

    We are not the world police, and even if we were, overthrowing their government is not a good way to arrive at a stable society. Like I said, all you have to do to verify that statement is look at history.

    The US can't right all wrongs going on in the world. Hell, we're having a hard time just maintaining a sub-par status quo in our own country.

    Say what you like about the UN, but that's part of what they're there for, and while they may not be extremely effective, at least they don't make things worse like outside overthrow tends to do.

    When Iraq has a dictator commit genocide twice, sell baby food causing 400k children to starve, invade neighbors multiple times and manage violation of 17 Chapter 7 UNSCRs, then we can worry about the status quo. It's time to end the tyranny in Iran and thus Syrian, Lebanon and Palestine. No more North Koreas, enough is enough.

    Regarding Ahmadinejad... he insists his country's nuclear program is only for electricity generation and medical research but he is not doing anything to put anyones fears to rest. For the love of God Ahmadinejad, shut your mouth for once and just open up all your facilities to inspectors from the U.N. nuclear agency to prove the intent of your enrichment of uranium. There is still time to resolve the dispute through diplomatic channels.
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    It would be, if there were any realistic probability of that happening, but there isn't.

    1. Our military is overstretched as it is. What is the point of launching campaign if it is doomed to failure?

    2. As history shows, another terrible regime will just pop up to replace it. Causing chaos in an unprepared society just creates more chaos.

    I'd love to wave my magic wand and make the bad guys go away, but here in reality, it doesn't work like that.

    Serenity is right. If they have nothing to hide, then they should just be open and allow real inspections. Also, Iran signed a nuclear treaty and now they are not playing nice.
