    So your saying that President Bush knew that Al-Qaeda, which was based out of Afghanistan and started in Pakistan, would run to Iraq <a country controled by a dictator who hated Al-Qaeda> so that he could then trap them there and kill them. WOW. Im going to use one of your standard lines. Back it up.

    Why don't you ask the Congress that authorized the action in Iraq and review the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998. As I pointed out, I had three family members in Iraq and all said we did the right thing. What is your experience in that area?

    Congress authorized action as a last resort because President Bush demanded that without it he could not protect us. It was by far not used as a last resort. In fact most of the world, even allies, did not agree.

    You also avoided the question. Are you saying that President Bush knew that Al-Qaeda, which was based out of Afghanistan and started in Pakistan, would run to Iraq <a country controled by a dictator who hated Al-Qaeda> so that he could then trap them there and kill them.

    That is your opinion, those of my family members there is quite different. Again what is your experience in that area?

    As for the world, the ones that matter were with us, the ones that weren't changed leadership and are now reversing decades of socialism.

    There is enough evidence to know that al Qaeda was in Iraq just like Afghanistan. Pay attention to politicians on both sides and their comments. Read the 9/11 Report, Read the Lord Butler Report, Read the Iraq Study Group report.

    Again, it would seem that people who were actually in Iraq have a better understanding of what went on there and by a wide majority claim we did the right thing. Bush had tremendous support from the troops and that continues today. What makes you an expert on Iraq?

    First off have you ever noticed how you attack somones knowledge on a subject without knowing anything about that person? You do in on almost every responce. YOu also try to insult people with your last statement. From my experience that means your very insecure about your possition and feel the need to attack others knowledge and person to divert the conversation from the real topic.

    So now you are an expert on what the Iraq people wanted becuase you have three family members who are in Iraq and if I dont have an equivalent family presence in Iraq your more of an expert than I am. Thats silly. Why dont you go visit the 30k plus wounded soldiers then come back and claim to be an expert.

    What I noticed is that you ran when challenged and resort to calling my statement a personal attack. I asked you what your experience was with regards to Iraq. I stated that I had three family members serving there and I can post quotes after quotes from politicians on both sides regarding support for terrorism and al Qaeda in Iraq. I can post the documentation from the Iraq Liberation Act, UN Inspector quotes, the Lord Butler Report, the 9/11 Commission which you will probably call a personal attack as well. Nothing is going to change your opinions which I believe were generated by what you have read or heard from sources you want to believe.

    Have you visited any of the troops that came back wounded? Talked to them about their mission? Most would go back in a heartbeat, why? yes, I believe that based upon research and actual family members that served there that I am more of an expert on iraq than you. You have provided nothing to change that opinion.
