    B-52's carry troops.
    The "B" indicates bomber. The B-52 is not now nor has it ever carried troops.

    LOL!

    Then what is the purpose of a F-117? Is it a "fighter" type aircraft?



    Sorry. I couldn't help myself.
    I came into this world fighting, screaming and covered in someone else's blood. I have no problem going out the same way.

    LOL. Sometimes the Air Force doesn't quite get it right. I don't know that they have a good designation for such things. Or maybe the "F" was part of the deception.

    Now are you telling me that you believe the B-52 is a troop carrier?
    Do you think the "B" means Bus?

    And rightly so... Europe as a whole doesn't want to invade anything.

    I was specifically talking though, about the run up to the invasion and the ridiculous statement by FD which intimated most everyone knew Iraq didn't have WMD's and that (at the time) was just not the case. We know that WMD's of the type identified were NOT there and Hussien was bluffing to his own military and the rest of the world - and did so quite well.

    A good number who joined us had economic interests in doing so. Your point?

    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.

    What international body has deemed the war illegal? Has the UN pursued action against the US? Has Iraq sued in international court?
    You mistake lack of action as being proof of innocence. Such is not the case.

    All of you need to knock off this UN crap. The UN is both a fatally flawed organization and totally irrelevant. Why we are still a member is a great unknown. I guess it falls under the title of "habit".
