    Did I say they don't exist--just another far-rightist strawman.
    Do you agree with basing a war on confirmed lies ?

    You missed his point.

    Our illegal and unprovoked invasion of Iraq created a power vacuum that allowed ISIL and Al Qaeda to infiltrate and flourish.

    So...yeah, about 100K innocent men, women, and children died due to our invasion, to the insurrection and our response to it, and to the ongoing violence since the government is still so weak.

    We're not doing it out of the blue, we're doing it as the only solution to terrorism. These people cannot be reasoned with, they cannot be convinced that they're wrong, they aren't afraid of dying, their purpose is to convert the world by force to their religion and nothing less is acceptable to them. If we stop bothering them, they won't stop. The only thing that will stop them is the death of every single extremist Muslim on the planet. Before doing that, I'd rather try something a little less drastic. Nothing less drastic than killing their families has been shown to work.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    After you have the women, children and babies, out front of the store, weapons to their heads, the terrorists refuse to give up.
    Next response is?

    And if you really want to talk about religion, take a wild guess what religion has killed the most people in the name of religion throughout human history. Here's a hint - it ain't the Muslims.

    It's been going on a lot longer than 2002. What happened might have made it worse, it didn't cause the problem. Certainly it didn't cause those Muslim animals to fly airplanes into buildings prior to that invasion of Iraq.
