    Not remotely the same thing, though more than one wife has turned on those who helped her. We cost more lives that would have likely be lost otherwise. We made things much worse for a long time. And we still don't know how it will end. It's hubris to think you know what is best for another country.

    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.

    Of course it is my opinion, but one I'm prepared to support. It is also your opinion that it matters. It is also subjective and reflective of your ideology in case you don't know.

    So Reagan ramped up military production for these operations?

    Did we know what was best for Nazi Germany?

    I understand that. Like others have said, no one knows what the future holds for Iraq. I really doubt if the UN or any of the allies who fought and lost people in the war would just allow Iran or whomever to come in and take Iraq. Especially if that OIL is so god awful important.

    Not even a close comparison. Not only were we attacked, but Germany declared war on us first. The differences matter.

    Iran doesn't have to. As far as Iran goes, which I didn't mention, just having a friendly Iraq is a enough of a victory for them (which is why they helped us invade).

    Assuming that most women would prefer not to be beaten, I could almost guarantee that she might appreciate any assistance you could offer her. :

    Don't forget, we supported BOTH sides in the Iran/Iraq war.
