    Scorpion, you need to tone down your freaking arrogance level, because it's only gonna make you look like an a**hole, and one who didn't do anything in Iraq anyway.

    I remember you getting all personal about Iraq, and saying you went there as part of the inspection teams. I also remember you said you were turned away. IE, your "experience" is going to Iraq for a few days, then you got your butt kicked out of there. That's what you have. What we have, is common sense, and a sense of humility, something you need to learn.

    Let's not lose sight of the real lesson for our children here. If you lie, you get hanged.

    and he also claims to be a test pilot instructor? My father taught fighter pilots, and one thing I know is he would never have bragged about it. No real pilot would.

    Scorpin has the biggest head in the whole damn world. All he can do is brag, brag, and then brag some more. Most annoying thing in the d**n world.

    If you come here to debate, you have to have humility. Scorpion has the opposite, extreme arrogance.

    I think you need to consult your history book.
    Hahahahahaha.

    Yes. The same one who attacked and fought Iran. With our blessing. The same one we aided in his war with Iran.

    Yes, the same one who invaded Kuwait. Who we drove out of Kuwait. Who then was defeated by us. Whose airspace we controlled. Who we contained.

    That is the history. History also tells us that our President, in 1991, stopped fighting after we had defeated Saddam's army, because he knew going further into Iraq would have been a military nightmare, and was completely unnecessary. H.W. was very smart, and understood the basic rule that it isn't smart to own liabilities. So he didn't take ownership of Baghdad. Good move.

    But we didn't learn from that history, and look where that got us.

    Point being, they were a threat

    who was involved in the worlds biggest embezzelment scheme in cahoots with the UN, france, russia et all, while blaming us for starving iraqis.

    nonesense Bush one told us to stand down because he was a UN coward. We stood ready to go in and were equipped to take bagdhad when he pulled us out because of the namby UN. Had he gone in, we wouldn't be there now.

    The Good Reverend is far more arrogant. But of course he is. I mean just look at the dood! If you were as cool as him, you would have to be arrogant too.


    Just sayin.

    That's not what WJBC said. Did he lie?
    Again - no one questioned their existence until it was obvious GWB was willing to do something about it.

    I am saying it was knowingly questionable and the administration was told as much.
    Perponderance of evidence.

    It has been long known that both Rumsfield and Cheney wanted an Iraq invasion prior to 9/11.
    Prove this to be true.

    How is this irrelevant?
    Because the discussion here revolves around the idea that you often have to act on incomplete information. Your interjection of 'why havent we invaded Iran' into the discussion is irrelevant.

    Given the damage potential of modern WMDs, there's no rational reason to write off the idea of pre-emptive war. Waiting to be attacked before acting does nothing but needlessly cost lives.
