    The goal of AQ is to re-establish an Islamic empire similar to that of the ancient Islamic caliphate...

    It's called The Global War on Terrorism Hussein funded terrorists, plus made an attempt on the life of The President of The United States.

    Those two facts, by themselves, made him a legitimate target.

    And the islamic caliphate is a contradiction to the American theory of separation between state and church; I believe that church can play an important role in politics and that it is necessary in the middle east to have such a government!

    You know, someone in this thread asked what would you consider a reputable source, I would answer that by saying the bible; however, since there is a separation of church and state it can never be used as a source in politics...

    An Islamic calephate contradicts everything that The United States stands for.

    Which makes you wonder why Bush spent $3T to make it easier for them by eliminating Hussein, who was an SOB but a secular SOB who hated al Qaida.

    Cant have it both ways. Obama didn't surrender our position. He really did absolutely nothing except NOT **** up the withdrawal agreements Bush signed before he left office.
