    I agree. I actually liked the father. Good man all and all.

    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.

    And what were those reasons why they did not invade Baghdad or remove Saddam, Boo? Do you even know? Please present them.

    Do you know what the consequences were (good and bad) of that choice?

    people still fall for this canard.

    we went to war to reshape the region.

    Even at the risk of revealing covert operatives, our operations, and providing such important details to the enemy and other countries?

    Furthermore, did you know that the ONLY people that the president is obligated to convince is congress? Our gov't is a constitutional-republic, not a democracy.

    Do you propose adding new laws?

    I agree.

    Saddam's relationship with terrorists was growing. The discussion on such relationships was NOT limited to al-qaeda as you falsely assume.

    Do you believe that the administration was only concerned with Saddam's associations with al-qaeda rather than any terrorist organization/stateless_militia?

    Do you believe that Saddam was associated with no other organization except al-qaeda (later it was discovered that saddam did not trust al-qaeda)?

    I strongly disagree. The evidence-- including documents released by our intelligence agency which unambiguously state saddam's pursuits in this matter--point to the fact Saddam was expanding and growing his associations and reputation with such organizations.

    I can provide evidence of some of this if desired. However, as I have seen before, I guess that you will attempt to "explain-away" the evidence with some ad-hoc reasoning in order to fit your preconceived conclusion.

    . The fact that the earth orbits the sun or that the US invaded iraq is NOT an opinion and contains no element of opinion. The only one's who claim otherwise are those who wish to distract others with red-herrings about philosophy or existence. Most rational people see these for the smoke-screens and evasion techniques that they are.

    I see nothing different in your attempt to conflate your opinion with the facts of what is or what happened.

    This is NOT a discussion on my personal political or philosophical beliefs. If you wish to discuss that then start a new thread. This is a discussion on what really happened up to and during the iraq war as well as the reasons and motivations by our leaders for their decisions and actions. Please stay focused.

    It was Dick Cheney's own words.

    Apparently back in 1994
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.
