    No that's pretty much what you said. You believe Saddam had WMD and he moved them to Syria because George Bush wouldn't have lied.

    Collateral damage is not evil; it serves good. Only via a reduction of the event to a rather childish perspective can someone fail to understand the greater implications. Such a position is like considering writing to be evil because it destroys the pencil.

    It is manslaughter. Why do Statists always want to sanitize reality?

    It is never childish to care for the loss of innocent lives.

    Such a position is like considering writing to be evil because it destroys the pencil.
    And now innocent lives are reduced to a pencil. I guess whatever makes supporting the State easier.

    If the pencil were a human being, then yes.

    You're missing the point. I'm not asking for links. I'm asking couldn't we have done the same with Iraq?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Who care HOW they kill people? Our pathetic president tells the world it's OK to kill as many as they want as long as it's not done with chemicals. What a tragedy Obammy is.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.
