Oh don't forget the invasion was based on terrible intell in the least or possibly even lies. Our invasion created a vacuum that has made Iran the key player in the region with nuclear ambitions. How's that working out for us?

    I hate to break this to you but you can't force democracy down the throats of people. They have to earn it themselves like we did in the American Revolution. The so called stability you see in Iraq is very fragile and could come down like a house of cards.

    You're absolutely right but I wasn't the one that brought her into the thread. I think you have me mixed up with someone else.

    I would wager that Palin and those that don't believe in separation of church and state are similar to the taliban in that respect.

    You jumped right up on that though didn't you?

    That would make you more foolish then you are trying to make Palin out to be...

    No I had to make a sarcastic comment. Big difference.

    Right. If you can't see that those that want religion to be a big part of government and the Taliban have something in common you don't know much about either of them. Of course I'm not saying they are one and the same and the Taliban are far more extreme, but they do have something in common. However I'm not expecting you to see it with the "REV" in your avatar.

    I am very into regime change and nation building. We can afford it. The invasion was justified. Thousands of innocent people were being killed already to no good end. It had a price worth paying in the casualties we took. So what if the intel was bad? Iran gained as a result, again so what?

    We can force democracy down the throats of people and we just did. Aside from some bumps in the road as they deal with the ethnic cards they were dealt, it is working out well. They are earning it.

    So are you admitting you are an anti-religious bigot?... So because I am a Reverend, I must be intolerant. Yet you are showing your intolerance and hypocrisy here....


    Tell me, link and quote where Palin wants religion to be a big part of Government. I'll wait.

    We can't afford it and we will pay the price. You haven't seen anything yet. We are in debt up to our eyeballs and it's getting worse. China owes half our debt and that is rising. We can barely pay back the interest. How is that for national security?

    There were a lot more people killed after the invasion and still are vs. when Saddam was in power. Saddam was a bad man but at least he kept the fruitcakes in check. No suicide bombers during Saddams reign. Who the hell are we to tell a country what they should and should not do? And furthermore the invasion has made the region more unstable than stable even if Iraq can stand on it's own. Iran is now the key power player in the region with nuclear ambitions. What part of that don't you understand?

    I could say that preceding paragraph is bullsheet delusion excluding all the facts but I'll just be nice and say time will tell.

    Just keep in mind the following two quotes from the mastermind of the Iraqi invasion to show how naive he was. He reminds me of you.


    "I think they're in the last throes, if you will, of the insurgency." -- on the Iraq insurgency, June 20, 2005 Dick Cheney

    It's right up there with this one in regards to Iraq:

    My belief is we will, in fact, be greeted as liberators." --March 16, 2003 Dick Cheney

    Be careful. You're talking to someone that prays every day at every meal, has been church lecter, usher, church council president, board member, and kept the walk ways and parking lot clear of snow after every snowfall. Just because I believe in the separation of church and state doesn't mean I'm intolerant and hypocritic. I have however seen my share of so called religious people even in my own church.

    Wow, so you are no different than palin.... You have been quite intolerant, you demonstrated predjudice simply because I am a Reverend.


    Are you a literalist?


    Anyway this is "tolerance"? no sir, it is anti-religious bigotry, and hell you have no clue about what actual religion I am, yet you make that "REV" comment. Quite a pathetic bigoted position you have there.

    Yes, this ought to be rich, in lieu of your church bragging. It will be great to see what separates you from Palin.
