I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
Thousands of dead American soldiers
Hundreds of thousands (million, maybe?) dead innocent Iraqi men, women, and children
Billions of dollars lost
Loss of huge amount of international goodwill that America had built
Galvanized anti-American sentiment in the Middle East and increased support for Al Qaeda
Power windfall for Iran
No weapons of mass destruction in Iraq
No connection between Iraq and Al Qaeda
We got Saddam
Oil companies and defense contractors made out like bandits
Yeah... a whole lot of money wasted, lives lost, political turmoil, and a less secure America... so a few rich @$$holes could get richer. No #$%^ing way that the war in Iraq was beneficial for this country. It was criminal in the first place, and gained no one (who isn't evil) anything.
Liberté. Égalité. Fraternité.
Oh... and the slave does not "invite" the master anywere.
And we are getting off the point here. I don't care about it being an invasion. That is not the point. Don't let him fool you. My point was that would another nation be justified in attacking us and kicking us out of any country that we were in with our military? Would Russia or China be justified as we think that we were in going to Iraq and attacking us in order to kick us out as we did to Iraq when they were in Kuwait. THAT is the point and not this apstd filled semantical tangent where he just won't answer the ****ing question.
