    How Ridiculous.

    There also seems to be alot of IGNORANCE here that we would be doing this ONLY 'for Iraq'.
    We would be doing this for OUR and the Wests' Oil/economies as well as saving Kurds and Christians from being Butchered.

    But Glad to see you disagree as your opinions are Wrong on EVERY issue I've seen you post on.

    That's a BS argument generally employed by people emotionally scared by losing a loved one. There is no rational foundation for the argument, it's entirely emotional and intended to shut down a discussion via irrational nonsense.

    According to the BS argument, no one can argue for helping any other country.

    The same could be said of foreign aid and someone giving their own property. Pure emotional crap.

    The same could be said about anything.

    It's nothing more than an emotional belch intended to insulate someone from intellectual debate. Why would someone want to be insulated from intellectual debate? Because they can't deal with it.

    Oh, I see, you think that's where it ends. Hopefully a sufficient number of Americans have learned a lesson.

    Shut down? You're still talking! And, the US is creating crisis' in the ME. Not helping other countries. The way the US has helped in the ME is quite a joke.

    When you're willing to enter an intellectual debate, instead of presenting arguments that are nothing more than emotional barks intended to protect you from intellectual debate, let me know.

    Actually, I've been working you over on the failures of US policy in the ME, that is not only widely recognized, but is being opposed at the UN.

    You're running from the truth of my evaluation of your position. You can't deal with intellectual debate in regard to intervention, so you present emotional BS that effectively excludes all opposing positions. Your claim is that the opposing position is not legitimate without the individual presenting the argument going off to war immediately. As your "standards" will never be met, you are free to (irrationally) presume that all opposing arguments are fake.

    It's intellectual cowardice put forth by a turmoil of emotion. It's running away from the debate.

    Why are you carrying on so, your position isn't being excluded, I haven't the powers of a Mod, post until your fingers are sore.
