    And lets say Bush was correct (which he weren't) and it was a threat to ME. Was i supposed to care anyway?

    If US is claiming to use UN violations as a justification for war.

    Well, there are alot of UN violators in this world, US should get suited and booted to invade them too

    How does that change what I said?
    You argued that there was no threat from Iraq. The UN, according to the language of its own resolutions, disagreed.

    And lets say Bush was correct (which he weren't) and it was a threat to ME. Was i supposed to care anyway?
    You not caring doesnt in any way change the validity of the action.

    Again:
    Using your logic, since you painted one room blue because you didnt like the old color, you must then paint blue ALL the rooms that you don't like the old color.

    The UN did not complete its own weapons inspection, it left months early unable to confirm and be assured there were WMD's.
    Our countries claimed there was a danger to our country posed by WMD's and it was dumb luck, we were running around during the first few months scrapping around factories so determined to get something.

    Some will wake up. Many will ignore or dismiss it. What is bliss again?

    Colours/wars does not mix.

    Try something else.
    Either US is using UN violations as a cause for war and if it is, there are more countries afterwards to invade.
    If not, then get another argument.

    The logic is -exactly- the same -- it either works for them both or it doesn't work for either.

    Fact is, the logic is unsupportable. Get a new argument.

    If "WE would have let the UN do its damn job?" Are you serious? Was it the US that told Saddam not to comply or was it Saddam that did not comply?

    What is it about liberals, that they seem to always look to blame America first... yet, ironically, are among the first to psuh for bigger government?

    And even so, it described Iraq as a threat.
    You dont have to like it, but you really DO need to accept the fact that it wasnt just the US and UK that thought Iraq was a threat.
