    Jesus, go learn what the term state of war means in relation to the numerous international conventions in place today.

    Again, using your logic we were at war with Japan on December 7, 1941. That is historically inaccurate and plainly false. A state of war exists when there are formal declarations of war. Have you read any? Please provide evidence that the US Congress has declared war on Libya or vice versa.

    Of course, you'll just continue to play your silly semantic game in hopes of actually appearing intellectual.

    Most of the genocide in Iraq happened when we supported and aided Saddam and had Iraq removed from the list of terrorist nations. We even provided the precurser needed for the mustard gas he used for genocide.

    And I think Iraq's demand that we remove all troops by the end of this year is a clear indication of their appreciation.

    NOTICE:

    This no-fly zone is to protect civilians not to topple Gaddafi, whether it be directly or indirectly. Here is the UNSC's resolution (in full-text).

    They are finely wrapped, aerodynamic, high speed gifts of American technology. I think that's how the Libs will start explaining them.

    You do recall the Japanese did not declare war on us until after Pearl Harbor... do you not? Like we needed their declaration then.

    According to your logic, that meant the Japanese action at Pearl Harbor was not an act of war but casus belli, and as I noted... you gave a false meaning for the term.

    Try, try again.

    The Only Thing that needs to be done is to send a bill to the United Nations for the full cost of every missile launched and every man hour involved in this supposed Humanitarian Effort that would not be neccessary if it were not for a prompting of REVOLT from the leftests in the first place. How's that DEMOCRACY movement working out for ya right now? Not wanting to take any responsibility for the lives that will be lost in this movement began by Socialists? Where are the cries, NO BLOOD FOR OIL? Now its a HUMANITARIN act when the left decides to HELP a nation that is one of the richest oil producers in the world. Question? Where was the lobbying for the protesters in IRAN and demand for a change in government? Are the Lybian's more deserving of the US's "humanitarian bombs"?

    What in God's name are you talking about?

    It was a people's revolution, everyone was involved.

    What the hell is wrong with you?

    So the United States was responsible for the genocide in Iraq, not Saddam Hussein?

    And you think that requesting the removal of troops years after the war has been concluded, and democracy in place, is the same thing as demanding an apology? Is that your well thought out analysis?
