    Some times military intervention is a needed, like Darfur, which is not recieving any. Yet, there are times where other pressures will work just as well. And we should never forget the power and potential of good negotiation. Where have the good negotiators gone?

    So time ago I had heard at least some speculation that our Boy Saddam was lying about the WMDs to either scare the US or the Iranians. You are correct that this war could have been avoided yet we also know that our own Boy Cheney and the gang of NEOCONS around the Son of a Bush did everything to make sure that the dynamic duo in charge in Washington did not get any information that would divert their target from Iraq.

    BTW not sure what help the UN would have been since didn't Saddam kicked them out before they completed looking for what was not there. Maybe now more people will understand that Boy Saddam was playing us or fools.

    Why do the Bush bashers always conveniently ignore Israel in this equation?

    Israel had a sword of Damocles hanging over their necks and HAD to do something.

    We couldn't allow them to start a war with Iraq so, to remove the perceived threat to Israel, we did it instead.

    I mean, ok, we're going to blame a guy who isn't in office for taking the words of someone who's dead to justify a war we're pulling out of.

    Um...I don't get it

    So we were supposed to "wait a few months" given that Saddam had WMDs? As far as we knew he had WMD. He said he had them. Scientist who fled Saddam said he had them.

    No this doesn't go to show anything could have been avoided. There's nobody running around with a crystal ball in Washington.

    What about Israel?
    Like i'd go to war for the benefit of another country. Are you nuts?
    Armies are there to protect THEIR country, not someone elses.

    We now sacrifice our soldiers for Israel's security? Thats nice, how many soldiers have they offered for Iraq and Aghanistan for the past 5 years again??
