    No doubt that a lot of headache goes into the formation of a country - but I feel that, by now, we should have figured some things out by now. But we haven't, we're still fledgling. (general musing not based on the thread at all)

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    that's right.....except bush and co used every opportunity to link 9-11 and iraq together in the minds of the public, so their reasons for war were many........and at the same time, none.

    Why pray for Katie? You need to pray for those that supported wars against countries that never attacked us.

    You and GD thank her for this? Telling, very telling.
    What lies, would you prefer to keep military atrocities secret and hidden from public view?

    Actually, there were multiple reasons. As I posted earlier, the reasons were:
    - WMD development threat
    - Treatment of citizens
    - Iraqi cooperation with terrorists
    - UN violations
    - To transform into a democracy

    The WMDs were highlighted and used as justification to the public and the UN.

    Yes wouldn't it have been easy to kill woman and children and innocent bystanders and lable them all "Al queada in Iraq" without the press being around?

    I agree. 8 years of revenge has already put us 3 trillion dollars in debt and costs tens of thousands of lives.

    the nation is far different than the framers thought. they could not foresee the advancements and changes in the way people live.

    they did a good job when the set the US up. what i see is a slow breakdown. i do think as the years have passed the US has taken for granted the special qualities it took to become what was great.

    the eyes of the world have seen this as well. the opinion i hear most often as i live abroad is that Americans are all arrogant. i know this is not true. it is the way Americans are seen though. the idea that the world owes them something .

    i know this is far off topic as well. but i still have a warm spot for the US. it just was not warm enough for me to watch it crumble.
