    Apparently the Senate intelligence committee found evidence that Saddam Hussein was indeed working on a WMD program and was funding and supporting Terrorism. I believe that Senate Intelligence Committee was under Democrat Control. I also believe that Bill Clinton signed the Iraq Liberation Act in 1998. Suggest you contact them or do research as to their authorization of the war

    So, if elected president, you'd send the US military out to destroy ISIS, Al Qaeda, the Taliban, and Al Shabaab. Would you go for all of them at the same time?

    How about a declaration of war this time, would you ask Congress to put the country on a war footing, or simply issue an edict yourself?
    Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?

    ISIS is at war with the West and that should make us at war with them because the threat is real. Yes, I would support a resolution declaring War against ISIS.

    By "people like me" you mean all U.S. Army Infantry veterans?

    Just out of curiosity, when did you serve?

    Because if you did I'm happy to entertain any opinion you might have.

    But if you're just another loudmouth chickenhawk cocksucker who thinks you have a leg to stand on when it comes to telling those of us who have served what we should think when it comes to defending this nation you can go ahead and stop wasting your breath right now.

    And the end of the fight is a tombstone white with the name of the late deceased,
    And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”

    Thank you for your service. Do you have the same feeling about fighting a war as my family members? Yes, I served during the Vietnam war and watched D.C. micro manage that war and see history repeating itself today. My Dad served at Pearl Harbor and my father in law was at Normandy. You fight wars to win them and that isn't what we did in Iraq

    Thanks for telling me the date. Now what's George W Bush's record on prominent terrorists' capture or kills?

    Bush was told by his advisors before he went into Iraq in 2003 that the aftermath would most likely be an islamic fundamentalist state. He went in anyway and it has gone exactly as predicted

    Because I understand cause and effect and won't play this game of partisan cowboy's and Indians, I have buried my head?

    What Middle Eastern countries NEED is to stop marring their cousins, stop arranging marriages between lecherous old men and their brother's young daughter, and to be brought kicking and screaming from the 14th century into the 21st. That's what they need. WE cannot do that. Only they can, and the only way this will ever happen is if strong-armed, secular leaders arise something along her lines of Kemel Attaturk, to help liberlise them by very force of will.

    So while you accuse me of appealing to emotion while in your other hand you swing 9/11 like a cudgel for your World Police policies. But that's beside the point, America was intervening in the Middle East for decades well before the 90's during the Cold War, and not to mention the Gulf War in the 90's.
