    What the hell does that have to do with whether or not the war was right or wrong? Seriously? And its very nice that you are so concerned about our troops. Maybe supporting an a-hole like Murtha and Kerry and all the rest that likened our soldiers to nazi storm troopers...and did so during a time when our soldiers were in harms way...maybe that emboldened the terrorists that remain there to think all they had to do was kill a few here and there and outlast us...

    Clinton declared war. Maybe you missed that.

    So...we shouldnt have 'invaded' Iraq (good God...your situational ethics is astounding)...we should have bombed them to the stone age?

    Maybe they were convinced another 17 UN resolutions STILL might not have accomplished the goals.

    Congress has to declare war.
    You might have missed it, but we did bomb Iraq into the stone age.
    Did the UN give us permission to Invade Iraq? We are not the UN.

    We're talking about Iraq here. Are you changing the subject on purpose or is it that you just can't keep up?

    Some wars are necessary and just. Iraq was not one of them. The costs were not worth it.
    There are other countries with worse human rights records, where genocide is occurring yet you don't advocate invading them do you?

    VM brought up Clinton and Serbia. Thats what we were discussing.

    Had Clinton invaded Iraq in 98 and it cost a trillion dollars and 5000 American lives would you have supported it? I wouldn't have.

    Or specifically authorize. As they've done in both current wars.
    It was the Austrasians, that hewed on bravely through the thick of the fight, it was they who found and cut down the Saracen King.
