    As in your statements regarding Michelle Bachmann?

    In voting to grant the President the authority, I am not giving him carte blanche to run roughshod over every country that poses or may pose some kind of potential threat to the United States. Every nation has the right to act preemptively, if it faces an imminent and grave threat, for its self-defense under the standards of law. The threat we face today with Iraq does not meet that test yet. I emphasize "yet." Yes, it is grave because of the deadliness of Saddam Hussein's arsenal and the very high probability that he might use these weapons one day if not disarmed. But it is not imminent, and no one in the CIA, no intelligence briefing we have had suggests it is imminent. None of our intelligence reports suggest that he is about to launch an attack.

    Yep, and then the machine up'd the ante, fomenting fear amongst Americans after they were cornered due to Blix having found NOTHING, no smoking gun at all, we heard, ".......do we have to wait for the smoking gun in the form of a mushroom cloud over an American city?" And then reports that his capability to deliver such was 6-9 months distance. THAT was complete hyperbole, meant to sway American opinion just like has been used on Americans so many times in the past. However, Saddam Hussein was NEVER capable of delivering a mushroom cloud over an American city. Maybe one day, someday, Americans will learn the lesson, that the White House is often eager to go to war, when such is far from necessary.

So, it is pointless to beat ones head against a wall with you Joe. You have clearly closed your mind to anything that doesn't go along with your lies.

    Eager? No, I think that is over exaggeration on its face. Remember, Bush went to the UN countless times, and got at least 3 resolutions leading up to the conflict threatening Saddam. All of which were mocked by actions of misdirection, and misleading UN inspectors.

    Also, remember that most of our wars were entered into by demo's, this one is unusual in the scheme of war history in America. But with that said, has anyone ever reported the signature of the chem weapons used in Syria? See, it's just my opinion, but I think that some of those were Iraqi, and this whole "peace" process there is to cover that up.

    J, at one time or another I've always backed mine up. I just won't keep doing it for you because you forget a day after you see it. You should see someone about that. And I always explain exactly what is wrong with the poor poor sources you use. You just whine liberal bias and post something inaccurate (bias is meaningless).

    I won't argue with you there. Both parties did that. You just see it only one way, which is what I take exception with.

    Classic.....Translation: "J, I gave you all my liberal sources that spin the narrative on this, and your sources that I don't like are just poopy heads so I'm right and you're wrong." Then you stick your tongue out and utter a childish "naaaaah!"

    Yeah ok...

    Stunning....You agree with me, and in the same post attack me for not seeing it "your way"..... Good grief....
