    Clinton might not have invaded Iraq initially, but he sure as hell stayed there and escalated it. He also signed a bill calling for Saddam's assasination.

    They had no WMD's.

    And now Iran and most definitely North Korea has them.

    The only stragetic value Iraq has, is oil reserves and an easy access point to Iran. Doesn't make it a just and right war, no boys had to die there.

    So now that a actual bad country has WMD's, glad to see your priorities were straight :

    Yeah, I know. You don't understand and you make silly arguments and that's my fault. I got you. You really didn't address a thing I said, so you might want to examine yourself just a little.

    Not nessecarily. But I'm certainly not naive enough to think it was to "free the Iraqi People" either...

    All of which is not invading. Not equal to it either. Wanting an outcomes is not the same as being reckless to get it.

    You mean silly arguments like claiming that most Iowans don't understand the law or the ruling, with your only proof being casual conversations with a few strangers on the street ???

    That kind of silly argument ??

    I don't believe I said that, as I don't. But let's not pretend it is the same reckless act as invading a country. Both illegal in their own right, but one more costly than the other.
