    I think you need to brush up on your history and on your current events. Iraq did not have nuclear capability, was not working on nuclear capability and did not have a delivery system capable of delivering a warhead much past Israel. Moreover, Iraq had ZERO to do with 9/11. The Bush Administration , to sell (hood-wink) the American people on attacking Iraq consistently used Iraq and Al Qaeda (or 9/11) in the same paragraph. The fact you did something similar suggests they sealed the deal with you.

    The United States government perpetrated a unilateral, pre-meditated attack on a sovereign country that had committed no greater contemporary crime then effectively mouthing off and not being in compliance with their truce. Otherwise, Hussein was nothing more than a two-bit dictator or a second world country. The US government spent between $2 and $6T to wage this war and occupation (and the occupation of Afghanistan) all to get rid of this political peon. Now there is value for you....

    Study: Iraq, Afghan war costs to top $4 trillion - The Washington Post

    Sorry, but the attack of Iraq is among the dumbest things our government has ever done. I'm sure glad you are sleeping well at night. $2-6T to remove a two-bit dictator? Now there is value. Let's make this personal. Do you know your personal taxbill for this? Try $40,000 ($6T / 150M taxpayers).

    If you wanted to sleep well at night, you should have simply bought your self a Sleep Number bed and banked the $39,000.

    The price was a lot of innocent people. And no, it's not remotely possible that invading Iraq had any effect on a nuke going off here. However, in the words of Conservative George Will, the lesson of Iraq is that if you mess the US, you better have a nuke. If he's right, and I think he may be, we may have made that a goal.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Oh, the silliness of the left! Like I've said before, you guys would be funny if you weren't so dangerous and destructive. I never said Iraq had anything to do with 9/11, did I? Quiet down, I'm educating you!

    It would be dumb to wait around for them to actually get nukes, right? They were pretty close back in the 80's. But hey, he was just a two bit dictator, he would never want nuclear weapons. We could rely on that, right? And he'd never supply them to anyone that would set them off here or in Israel, right? That's a gamble worth taking with millions of lives, as long as we are nice to them.

    See what I mean about the left being dangerous? Of course you don't, but we still have to try and maintain our safety.

    I did not say that you said Iraq had something to do with 9/11. I merely accused you of the standard Republican manipulation of mentioned Iraq in the context of 9/11 (using them in the same sentence or same paragraph), which you did do.

    Again, there was no evidence that Saadam was a clear and present threat to the US. But, since you were happy that we spent $40,000 of your personal money getting rid of him... well, I am glad you see value in that. I, on the hand, want my $40,000 back. It could have been better spent on just about anything else.

    Prove it. Obama is a total failure at every turn in his administration. But feel free to bring up a man that has been out of office for 6 years all you want.

    The fact that you honestly still think Saddam was a threat is hilarious.

    And yet somehow, in Anthony's world, it's "the left" that's "dangerous."

    The fact that you don't is why the left is so dangerous.
