    No, I attribute the deaths to the indirect results of the US action. We created the environment in which death and misery prevailed, like fertilizing a garden.

    No one's crying. Yet another poor tactic. The threat asked a question. I answered it. Others responded. Nothing more.

    And while I note things I disagree with ths president concerning the two wars, Iraq will forever be Bush's, even when a republican finally regains office. There's no way around that.

    Only a fool measures equality by results and not opportunities.

    A picture of a coin with .01 - .02 Cents scrap value. Clad copper. Supposed to be worth a quarter dollar. Imagery sells. Is that the message. Nothing is what it seems. Fiat money now referred to as a medium of exchange because it has no intrinsic value. It's all sort of like grabbing a handful of smoke. You might be able to smell it, but there ain't nothin' there.

    By that logic, the British created the environment for the US to become a world power, so they're ultimately responsible for this.

    William the Conqueror is to blame.

    lol funny stuff

    Not exactly. But the British did have there share of imperialistic moments and are responsible for the damage they caused as well. The war and the killing doesn't happen if the US doesn't invade. It's just that simple.

    The US doesn't invade unless the British colonize the Atlantic seaboard, thus giving an opportunity for the US to become a nation that eventually has the opportunity to invade Iraq.

    Either people are responsible for their actions or they're not. Apparently, you were vehemently against the war and are looking to pile things on it in an attempt to create a more robust moral high ground?

    You're the one saying we're not responsible for our actions. Apparently you think any consequence of our actions should be blamed on others. This is becoming the way if think for to many today. We not invade, the killing doesn't happen. We invaded a country on a pretext, with no reasonable justification, costing hundreds of thousands of lives, but lack the balls to take responsibility (or at least one do).
