    The war moved Iraq from a totalitarian dictatorship to a democracy where Iraqis actually get to vote and elect their leaders. It is incredibly stupid to suggest that nothing was accomplished.

    My decisions aren't based upon polls. I was opposed to Afghanistan and Iraq when it was hugely unpopular to be, as in, before either one happened. I was in the lead on this along with very few other Americans at the time. I'm just pointing out to you that even though it took Americans years to realise it, they are in growing numbers, too. BOTH A-Stan and Iraq. Your going to have to live with it, that's the way it is.
    We can agree or disagree in regards to Iraq....however it is completely idiotic to oppose our invasion of Afghanistan. The WW2 era equivalent would be the USA giving Japan a pass on Pearl Harbor.

Never mind what Bush said they hate us for, its not because of Starbucks, the NFL and shopping malls, nor perceived morals and values. You seem to want to ignore the reasons and just keep fighting.
    Osama Bin Laden was a bloody murderous and quite insane terrorist. It's sad that you put so much stock in what he said.

    Right now they control enough land to cover the size of Belgium.

    Recent converging studies are showing that liberals tend to have a larger and/or more active anterior cingulate cortex, or ACC—useful in detecting and judging conflict and error—and conservatives are more likely to have an enlarged amygdala, where the development and storage of emotional memories takes place. More than one study has shown these same results, which is why I felt it was worth investigating.

    You are positive proof that those studies cannot be taken seriously.

    There is a facade of democracy. It's a Shiite government, try again.
