    This is your way of avoiding answering. So, isn't you who are playing games?

    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.

    Still boring...
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Yes.

    I know the USA via Linebacker II won the Vietnam War. I also, know that the Democrats gave it, South Vietnam, away causing hundreds of thousands of death and then re-wrote history saying we, the USA lost. But then they are Democrats and lying is what they do......along with stabbing friends in the back.


    There, does that answer your "question"?

    So you are re-writing history? Like Iraq, VN should not have been fought to begin with. What cost all those lives was the ill considered decission to fight there in the first place.

    However, I was speaking of Iraq. VN should be another thread.

    I did ask what the question was. You gave a partial answer. So don't blame me if I get it messed up.

    So, are you asking me what we, the USA, knew before the 2003 invasion of Iraq?

    That's easy. I have no idea. You don't either. I still opine that the real reason for the invasion of Iraq was Iran.

    Bush(43) made lots of errors in his war effort.

    The first and most important was the very same error LBJ made in the 1960's in VN. He, Bush (43), tried to have guns and butter at the same time. It has never worked. Pick one or the other.

    Ockham, I suggest you do some reading of the minutes of UN discussion prior to the vote not to sanction the Iraqi invasion. The facts about why The UN did not sanction this invasion are starkly different from what the US media and the GWB administration said about the subject.
