    ground troops are the last resort, missles and bombs on thier military infrastructure til they surrender, then let them rebuild their own damn government...with the sure knowledge that we MIGHT come back in the future...

    What military infrastructure was left after the Persian Gulf war??? The first thing the troops were ordered to do was secure the oil facilities.

    The Saudi's attack on the US was like a gift to the Bush Administration who had been planning military intervention in Iraq for at least 2 years prior to the 9/11 attack by the Saudis.

    Because the Bush Administration totally existed prior to the 8 months Bush had been in office at the time on the attacks...

    You are correct, I meant to say 2 years before our invasion of Iraq.

    That approach made more sense in Afghanistan where some who needed getting was. Saddam was a no body, not worth one life lost.

    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.

    Where?

    "On the first day of the campaign, Marine units were ordered to secure 600 Iraqi oil wells and prevent environmental disaster." - George W. Bush

    Online Speech Bank: President George W. Bush - Address at Camp Lejeune to Military Personnel and Families

    "Hours after the invasion began, U.S. forces had seized two offshore terminals that can transfer 2 million bbl. daily to tankers. They secured the southern Rumaila oil field so swiftly that Saddam Hussein's retreating troops managed to set only nine wells ablaze, compared with 650 Kuwaiti wells during Gulf War I, and U.S. airborne troops took the northern oil fields at Kirkuk largely intact.

    Three weeks later, when U.S. forces rolled into downtown Baghdad, they headed straight for the Oil Ministry building and threw up a protective shield around it. While other government buildings, ranging from the Ministry of Religious Affairs to the National Museum of Antiquities, were looted and pillaged, while hospitals were stripped of medicine and basic equipment, Iraq's oil records were safe and secure, guarded by the U.S. military. General Richard Myers, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, had an explanation: "I think it's, as much as anything else, a matter of priorities."
