    Well, somehow or another we ended up sending 100,000 troops to a country that had nothing to do with 9/11. And nearly all Americans thought Saddam was involved in the attacks at the time.

    That certainly takes some fine PR work.

    So it's okay to exploit tragedy when it's a political cause you agree with it?

    (btw, Saddam had nothing to do with 9/11. There was no vengeance to be sought)

    We know that some of AQ trained in Iraq. Don't forget that.

    Yes, we did.
    And yes, it does.

    If you ask people at random, they'll still say that we invaded Iraq because of the attack of 9/11, and yet the only connection was our own government using it as an excuse for something they wanted to do all along.

    None of the perpetrators were from Iraq. Nearly all (15 out of 19) were from Saudi Arabia.

    Yet somehow, Saddam was the one hanged and the crown prince regime remains one of our closest allies in the region.

    Don't forget that.

    Not really. It allowed me to mostly ignore what you wrote.

    Why do you pretend you don't?
    I'm not now, nor was I when you responded to my question towards VanceMack.

    In fact, you post exactly like I do in terms of tone.
    Rarely do I go barging into a thread to accuse people of lying.

    After saying I "failed" to understand it.
    I did not use the word failed. In fact, I said that I was afraid you misunderstood, at which point I went on to try and clarify.

    You post something; you pretend you meant something else
    No, I post exactly what I mean. But you do not follow what I mean. Whether that's my fault for not explaining it better and/or in more detail, or your fault for simply not understanding what I consider to be a simple statement, either way I meant what I said. I cannot completely control what you interpret from what I say.

    And you have the nerve to say I'm the "hostile" and "dishonest" one.
    Again with the attack. Could you please calm down?

    The evident reality: you just made it up the new "context" on the fly. This has happened more than once, so the benefit of the doubt is gone.
    I've never once did such a thing. Again you're resorting to personal attacks due to a simple misunderstanding.

    Why can't you just post honestly? And by the way, that wasn't an "insult."
    I have never done anything else. And yes, accusing me of posting dishonestly is attacking my integrity. That is an insult.

    I told you -- you have to ask him. But he wants it, and this helps get it. That's his "gain."

    I don't have to explain why he wants. Insisting that I do is (again! shocker!) dishonest.

    So?
    Let me see if I have this correct. You interject yourself into a question I ask of another, answering the question you mistakenly thought I asked, and yet, when I clarify what I truly asked and assume you have an interest in the question due to your previous interjection, I'm the dishonest one? That does not make sense at all.

    Kinda like saying the current gun control legislation would have prevented Sandy Hook. Which is an obvious lie to sell a political agenda.

    Really? Should we invade ourselves because we've had multiple mass shootings from Americans? There is something to be said for diplomacy when diplomacy is viable. Do you think diplomacy was viable with Iraq? Saudi Arabia isn't a perfect ally, but they are an ally. Iraq was never an ally.

    Adding more federal power, control and spending is important, just ask Obama. Not that any connection between this newest gun control bill and preventing the Sandy Hook school shooting can be shown, but it does expand the federal gov't - so it must be good for us, as a nation. If you intend to add federal funding for local schools then it makes perfect sense to attach that to "gun control"; or am I getting that backwards?
    Never let a crisis go to waste.

    Good analogy.
    This one is unlikely to result in hundreds of billions in expenses and thousands of American soldiers dead, but yes, that's how political agendas tend to be sold.
