    No question wars cost money. They cost a LOT of money. My point is that people that believe our deficits are a major problem should not be advocates for wars. My hunch is that there are far too many that fall into this trap of hypocrisy.

    Sorry? Iraqis only killed 3000 Americans AFTER we went to war. Had we never gone to war, those Americans would be alive today.......

    .......unless..... no,..... you aren't suggesting...... you couldn't be..... you aren't suggesting that Iraq was somehow behind 9/11?..... I hope???

    The death rate for US soldiers during the Iraq war is about the same as if they were not at war.

    Hey Democrats....compare that to June 6, 1944.

    Most people don't equate the war against NAZI Germany who were invading other countries to the war on the Iraqis who did not have the capacity to invade other countries after the first Gulf war and the 10 years of sanctions we enforced.

    No, because the Iraq war was way too partisan, and Bush spent all the goodwill the Republican Party had. One could argue that the Iraq war lead, in a retaliatory and reactionary vote of displeasure with Bush, directly to the election of Barack Obama.

    Likewise, I see the partisan policies of Obama leading us to the election of another extremist, perhaps the Jeb Bush.

    The country would have been better off had John Kerry won after the first W Bush term. Then we would have followed with. John McCain type, and the country would be much less divided today.

    That statement is untrue. It's just another lie that Democrats in the USA and various other Saddam apologists repeat ad nauseum in hopes that dupes will believe it.

    That quote was taken from a transcript of a cable released by the G.H.W. Bush Library. Say and believe what you wish, but it came from published material by Bush Sr. himself.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    And now, after being caught repeating an untrue statement, you follow it up with another untrue statement.
