    Oh thats right, stupid me
    The people in the plane had links with Saudi Arabia but we invade Iraq ... Yup, perfect sense to me.

    Oh please.
    We are going about UN resolutions now? Is that now the basis of a US attack on a country?

    Damn you are right. I am such a bitch. How dare i try and be fair between the two President.
    Fair? You unfairly blame one president for "starting" two wars without taking relevant facts into consideration - such as America was attacked on 9/11 while defending Obama's willful actions - such as finding new ways to overspend during what could have been a slight economic downturn.
    Your inconsistencies are hardly fair.

    He is commander in chief. Who else does the buck stop with?

    As i said, Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11
    It was a war of CHOICE.

    According to you. Your opinion doesn't make it so.

    Hey!
    Given that this would require a miracle -- an act of divine intervention -- doesn't this support His followers' notion that The Obama is indeed The Messiah?

    Wait, you blamed Bush for TWO wars... you cannot count the Iraq war twice... besides I already adressed the causes of Iraq war... and I did not specifically cite 9/11... rather I stated, the failure to follow UN resolutions and the threat that was posed to America.

    No, not by itself, but coupled with the threat posed to America, if Saddam had been trying to aquire WMD's - unfortuntaly for Saddam, he was too successful in trying to appear as if he was hiding weapons...

    Do they pose a threat to the US?

    No threat to US.
    Unless you include invisible WMD's. Yup, i heard the invisible ones could take out half of America.

    Saddam should have been left alone.

    ...and as I stated, you referred to two wars; I cited 9/11 as the impetus for the Afghanistan War and Saddam's failure to comply with UN resolutions tied with the threat he posed if he had WMDs as some of the contributing reasons for Iraq.

    All of a sudden, the Iraq war is the only war you seem to point out and take the specific cause for the Afghan war as the specific cause for the Iraq war – perhaps you are just confused… or perhaps you are trying to mislead.

    In the end, I do agree with you on one point - the Iraq war was a war of choice - Saddam's choice.

    Afhanistan perhaps wasn't but it still counts as a war.
    Iraq was a war of choice and stupidity for the 'coalition of the willing'

    As i said and always have said, we should have left Iraq alone and Saddam

    Thank you for that Monday-morning quarterback analysis - but, unfortunately we did not know for certain that there were no WMDs and Saddam Hussein did everything he could to act as if he did, by not complying with UN resolutions.

    Do you know why realistic toy guns are no longer sold in American toy stores? Not because they caused any direct harm by themselves, but rather because the police could not know for certain whether someone has a relaistic looking toy gun or a real one - and they could not afford to be wrong... same as America could not afford to be wrong with Iraq.
