    That's what we did prior to WW2 and nearly a half million Americans died. Now, hindsight being 20/20, do you think it was a good call to wait?
    You're comparing Iraq to Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan... Those countries, even with their technology of that day, could have still beaten the Iraq you beat in 2003

    They were no threat to you. Where's the WMD's?

    One thing's for sure, Iraq will never, ever be a threat to us, again.

    It was never a threat to begin with...

    They barely had enough spare parts to keep a tank in operation, let alone WMD's...

    But if you found them, please do let us know, Mr. Rumsfeld would sure like to know too...

    They were never going to be to start with. So, we spent billions, spent thousnads of lives, tens of thousands of civilian lives (some 100,000), to face the little more than we were facing to begin with. Now that's what I call a great statergy. Really smart stuff.

    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.

    You don't know that. Saddam had already attempted to assissinate Bush Sr. You have no idea what was going to happen, if Saddam remained in power.

    Nope, just an actual threat, rather than a threat we know we destroyed a decade earlier.

    You mean they can't shut off their oil whenever they want too? That was the only threat they presented.

    By the time another state becomes a direct and imminent threat to the United States, it's going to cost millions of lives fighting them off. In the nuclear age, it's extremely idiotic and short sighted to allow things to get that far.

    There's no way you can say that with any amount of credibility, unless you have a crystal ball.

    Yes, we do know that. From intelligence reports we know Saddam's military capacity was destroyed in 1991 and the 700 inspections made until 2002 confirmed there was no threat.
