    Or has Texas seceded from the rest of the world? I'm sure there are Texans who would like to.

    Yup, but not in any power, he's as relevant now to politics now as Saddam Hussain is.

    Thank goodness for that.

    But, sometimes I think that Obama is just the third Bush administration in a different body.

    Basically, if not worse, but the point is Bush was a war criminal (as is Obama), that doesn't give other countries the right to invade the United states and assisinate him.

    sorry, but what you are revealing here is a lack of knowledge about the position of women in Iraq

    Democracy is always good for the environment. When those directly affected by environmental degradation have no voice in the management of said resources, the situation only gets worse. And let's not forget that Saddam was an eco-terrorist, killing the deep sea coral in the Gulf on purpose.

    I've always wondered if much of the PTSD from this war comes from our service people injuring and or killing Iraqi's for the sake of freedom and justice, only to have the case made ad nauseam that it was totally unjustified.
    Except, of course, all those people were relying on intelligence reports cooked by the Bush Administration to make a case for war.

    A lot of us non-Texans would like it, too.

    The same BS is happening with Iran now. It is very relevant to current policy discussions.
