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"?
    Agree with almost all, the only problem with billing the UN is we would in essence be billing ourselves.

    "humanitarian Bombs"... LOL...

    Try, try again.

    That's the whole point of my argument, or do you fail to comprehend such a simple concept?

    We were not at war with Japan until we DECLARED WAR on them. They were not at war with the US until after that. There act of aggression was not war, it was a cause for war. But ignore all historical relevance of this and keep on spewing rhetoric such as America is at war with Libya.

    Do you even know what How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb is about?

    Hint: It has nothing to do with the topic at hand.

Saddam mowed them down with gunships from the U.S. The Secretary of Defence, Richard Cheney, said the reason they didn't go to Baghdad was because - get this - it would be a quagmire.

    We could not say we didn't have a part in it. If you aid and abet a dictator in genocide, do you not bear some responsibility?

    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?
    We don't know if the corrupt government we helped set up there can even stand on its own after our occupation forces are withdrawn that are propping it up, much less what kind of government will be in place after their civil war. I think the ones that didn't think this through were the ones that planned the invasion of a country that was of no threat to us.

    LOL... their bombing was an act of war... you do not need a slip of paper to make it so. Their strike was pre-emptive. America is in War No. 3.

    And will you admit to the class that casus belli is the justification for war; the selling of it to the public to gain support.

    One of my favorite flicks, and Clockwork Orange too.

    The title of the flick was perfectly worded for the task at hand... how the Libs are so malleable, and how they have come to love the bomb.

    The Japanese committed an act of war. What on earth are you talking about??

    And I can assure you that if another country were to start shooting our planes out of the air in any nation on earth, well, that'd be an act of war as well.

    "most"?

    And I think Iraq's demand that we remove all troops by the end of this year is a clear indication of their appreciation.
    Kinda like when de Gaul kicked the U.S. out of France? Or, when France wouldn't let U.S. bombers fly through French airspace to bomb Qadaffi?

    How ironic is that?
