    I happen to be one of only a few here that is an equal critic of both parties. Constantly pointing out that both parties are DESTROYING this country. You are the partisan.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    I'd rather Iran and Syrian troops and money be spent rather than U.s. money and U.S. troops lives be spent for a country where a large portion of the TRAINED army just picked up and retreated without a fight.

    You would rather lives and money be spent from the U.s. on a hopeless cause for people who don't even want us around.
    I could not care less who likes us in that filthy sand pit. These backwards relic terror thugs will learn you screw with this nation, and support terror you paint yourself as a target, and we will rain missiles and bombs down on you until we are satisfied.

    Leaving that region to a terrorist state is not going to happen, even though libs would be fine with it.

    I didn't add anything. These people died because of a power hungry dictator. He invaded Iran. Years later he would invade Kuwait.

    Absolutely. I remember back to the troop surge, at the time it became clear to me that the left was willing to lose this war because of politics. That was an important lesson. Of course the surge worked, but those appeasing lefties are still around.

    People Like YOU who supported the war in Iraq left that region as a vacuum for terrorists when they toppled Saddam. Even Secretary of Defense Cheney knew this would happen. Sad Vice President Cheney forgot that.

    And you can try and justify all you want about Saddam being a tyrant but there are MANY tyrants the U.s. has left in power even now so don't even try that excuse with me son. North Korea, Africa, Iran, etc. You have no cards to play on that one son.

    It's not that clean Pero. A war fought on lies and false pretence cannot be considered military victory.

    He invaded Iran with the help and blessing of the US. Wouldn't expect you to point that out though. More of that interference that causes people in the ME to hate us, another thing I wouldn't expect you to acknowledge.

Nearly five years after the U.S. invasion of Iraq, an exhaustive examination of the record shows that the statements were part of an orchestrated campaign that effectively galvanized public opinion and, in the process, led the nation to war under decidedly false pretenses.

    The war was composed of distinct stages. The initial conflict ended quickly, our military is conventional and did its job superbly. The problems came from terrorists who flooded into the region as well as from sectarian militias.

    We started utilizing those militias to fight each other or terrorists, and then got quite good at finding and killing these terror cells. We got so good the most wanted list had to be constantly updated to remove the killed or captured. Lessons learned in Afghanistan helped in Iraq and vice versa.

    I think our two biggest mistakes where tying the justification of invasion to WMD's when we didn't need to, and removing the Baathists and therefore gutting the administrative structure of Iraq.

    Look at all the democrats here saying Saddam had to go. You do realize Clinton designated regime change as the goal for Iraq, dont you?

    And that doesn't include the many democratically elected governments our CIA toppled in Latin America and replaced with brutal dictators, most notably to advance the interests of United Fruit, and others.
