    Could you explain the reasoning you used to come to that ridiculous conclusion?

    Simple. "Them," those who attacked us, those who we needed to tackle, were not based in Iraq. Invading Iraq would like choosing to beat up A Girl Scout because Tyson hit you.

    But at least US and British oil once again have access to Girl Scout Cookies for the first time since 1973!

    What are you talking about, I gave you a video of Hillary supporting the WMD argument and also making connections between Saddam and Al Qaeda.

    You didn't stop there. I spoke of Kerry. Haven't looked at Hillary enough to if you have the context correct, and I am not sure why you think she speaks for everyone. Are you willing to accept everything Hillary says as the gospel?

    What do you mean "didn't stop there"? And why are you blaming me for Hillary's context, I didn't quote her, I gave you a video of her speaking.

    Many people in powerful and influential positions supported the Iraq War, including these three, who I added because they're probably the three most influential Democrats right now, proving that it wasn't just "Bush's war".

    Yeah, it sure seems that way

    Whenever anyone acts like the war was a total mistake and a total waste, I always feel so bad for our troops who fought so bravely for us.
