    There were Japanese many years after the war ended still fighting the war. War is hell but wars are waged to win them, people like you don't get it and never will

    Congress read it and the Senate under Democrat control, a Democrat party now that demonizes the war, voted 76-23 to support it. Read the resolution

    And how long afterwards was the fighting still going on in those theaters ? How long would it have continued in Iraq even despite your very high troop numbers because few Iraqis ever viewed you as liberators ?

    AS long as it took to assure that our loss of life and treasure were not wasted in vain and that our long term interests were protected

    So why did the American public believe something else ? Even years afterwards in 2007 41% till held Hussein as being culpable despite all the evidence to the contrary

    Doesn't matter because we have a representative democracy in this country. Amazing how many here ignore that reality except when that representative democracy does something the individual supports. Guess you missed that in your civic class about America

    Ask our apparent best ally Israel about Saddam Hussein funding terrorists. Again apparently you didn't read the resolutions so stop digging your hole of ignorance deeper. Such passion you have for your beliefs even though proven wrong
