    That's wasn't the case, and in fact, the majority of the resistance was comprised of non-Iraqis.

    You do realize you are talking to a veteran, right? If anybody is denegrating our troops it's those, such as yourself, who support sending them willy-nilly, half way around the world, to be put in harms away, taken from their families, and subjected to danger for reasons that are not worthy of their sacrifices. All so you and your proud crowd can feel like king of the hill and the world's hall monitor so you can play Rush Limbaugh and wave your flag.

    You have a lot of ****ing nerve addressing a veteran like that. How long did YOU serve the military? What have YOU done to serve our nation? If the answer is "not a damn thing" then you need to shut your mouth as you are a parasite riding on your freedom like a deadbeat on welfare. You could use a lot less nerve and more smarts, IMO.

    I think apdst has a CIB, from Iraq? I was a para, I've got my national defense ribbon (Gulf 1). I support liberation, even at terrible costs. We cannot allow people to live under unthinkable tyranny. World freedom before world peace; it's time we get it done.

    Promoting democracy and defending America's interests is worth that sacrifice. And, yes, I am a veteran, too.

    The hypocrisy here is astounding.

    Thank you for your service. You have every right to whatever opinion you so desire. You have earned it.

    The North Korean Army is massed on the parallel.

    Re: Was the War in Iraq worth it?

    I often wonder how many nations are concerned that we have armed cartels penetrating and massing on OUR borders? My thoughts are that they are applauding.

    I am tired of the USA assuming the place of the world's policemen when the people we are trying to "liberate" prefer to see us crash and burn.

    How arrogant to assume that it is our God given destiny to dictate to the world that our American values and interests come above all others regardless of the cost. I'm all for adhereing to American values and our ways of life. But I do not think it is our place to ram them down the unwelcoming throats of people, in other sovereign nations, half way around the globe.
