    So the reason to unleash hell on the enemy and try to destroy them is because war is never easy and is downright impossible to win?

    Depends on why you think the war was really about.

    There was a relatively wide and deep discussion in the policy media at the time and pretty much all angles were thoroughly vetted. I suspect that Powell distrusted the nuclear and mobile weapons systems stories, but that would be the extent of it. And everyone that was serious about wanting to knew that the crux was the red line Bush had drawn, when he said the UN should solve the problem or it would be irrelevant. Saddam had not corresponded to the SC Resolution and the UN was not willing or capable of making him. Everything else was immaterial.

    For me Iraq was the next liberation mission following Dardania in 1999. Plus Saddam and Milosevic and the Serbian government were and are still getting along better. Saddam supported Milosevic so he had it coming!

    We are Muslim (shallow but Muslim nevertheless) by majority, while Serbia followed a dictatorship rule. Between such options Iraq choose the dictatorship regime of Serbia and choose to support it instead of us while we and Iraq share a similar religion.

    Things should have changed after the dictatorship in Iraq and Serbia mellowed. Now both regimes do not share the same type of government (not officially at least). But Iraq has not recognized us still to this day.

    You can't. You can only leave those people alone. At the same time, look at what their religion excepts. If we align ourselves with influential liberals within the muslim community, their ways will get more lax. The majority of muslims are more homophobic, ignorant of other cultures and anti-woman rights than any of the craziest conservatives in USA. If we can get them to be just as crazy as our conservatives with information rather than bombs, I think we did ok overall.
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    Wow, to you and the guy that liked such nonsense!! I suppose being where you're from you would neither understand or appreciate the American constitution. It is unique the world over, and there is no room in it for what you suggest, even though we've had our share of presidents that have thought of it as such.
