    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    I never lumped it as an Army thing.

    If you don't like the word "prediction", use another word. It's still another right wing FAIL

    I didn't use the word, you did. I was referring to something that could have happened had things not occurred as they did. What I said is impossible to prove or disprove (and is in no way a "prediction,") but it's fairly obvious that civil war would have happened regardless of our interference.

    Do you think that if Saddam fell without US involvement, Iraq wouldn't have degraded into sectarianism and civil war?

    Yes, I did use it. Have any more obvious observations worth noting.

    I think you're consistently failing with your posts

    I vote that we let the Iraqis sort them out.

    I'm sure that Iran will be glad to jump in, if necessary.
    Hah. Yeah. The basic problem with us vis-a-vis the Middle East is that activity creates problems (e.g. the recent wars, CIA activity in the 70s, etc), but inactivity may not be all that useful either. It's a **** situation, all around.

    Yes, I'm not a right winger. Also, you should have ended your sentence with a question mark.

    I'll ask you again. Do you think that if Saddam fell without US involvement, Iraq wouldn't have degraded into sectarianism and civil war?
