    But he was their criminal. He committed crimes against the Iraqi people.

    Let's face it, the United States is damned if they do take action and damned if they don't take action, so we're always going to be the bad guys in some people's eyes who can't seem to grasp the entire picture.

    The USA is a dangerous country.

    It has a habit of invading other countries which are no real threat to the USA.

    It is the only country on this planet to have ever used nuclear weapons.

    Which is one reason why some countries see having nukes as a good thing.

    Think about it.

    The "big" picture is that sometimes actions have to be taken to take a problem out of the equation. For the sake of the international community we can't just ignore threats. That would be stupid and ignorant. I'm still waiting for something of substance out of you about the topic besides silly one line statements that really don't mean anything.

    This is so devoid of anything approaching sense it boggles the mind.

    Are there really people out there who think that if the U.S. doesn't do anything that the world would be a peaceful place? Or are some of you just isolationists?

    Yeah, we could have captured Saddam and put him in Gitmo, and then we'd have enemies because of that action. I wonder if there would be more attacks against us just because of that. I have a feeling the insurgents might be even worse if he were still alive and being kept in a prison somewhere.

    You speak in cliche platitudes. We had a problem with Saddam not the world. We wanted cheap oil. He wanted to move away from dollar only oil trades. He invaded a monarchy we set up. We invade because we are a greedy empire.

    Exactly. All we are seeing is other countries adopt the tactics of the agressor , but don't tell anyone here that because they like to live in the illusion this is Mayberry, RFD...........................
