    I don't think you are to be believed and I know you cannot define what is a "neo con" it's socialist propaganda. I guess the Democrats who voted in favor of that invasion are "neo cons" as well...

    Good bye
    I think your mixing me with someone else. But my point still stands.

    I seem to recall an event some years way before when Iran committed an act of war against the US by attacking and kidnapping US citizens and diplomats. Then there was this little issue where the skies over America had to be shut down for two or three days because some middle eastern Islamic 'nice guys who need jobs' managed to elude US security for years, fool the CIA and almost destroy the pentagon and a large chunk of New York City.

    Before that there was the "Cole", the embassy bombings and who can forget Reagan's bombing of Ghaddafy's house.

    Oh yeah the invasion of Afghanistan was in there too, a war approved by almost every Democrat in the country

    Yep, it's all new and George W. Bush invented it
    Iran is Shia, Baghdad was Sunni when Saddam was in power, its mostly Shia now.
    President Reagan supported Saddam because he was the enemy of the enemy. Presdent Bush's invasion of iraq screwed that whole relationship and empowered Iran beef up their nuke program.

    How does Iran relate to 911?
    How does the bombing of the Cole relate to either Iraq or Iran and not OBL?
    What was the reason for destabling the ME by invading Iraq?
    BTW, how did those hostages get home?

    Clinton: Iraq has abused its last chance.....

    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- From the Oval Office, President Clinton told the nation Wednesday evening why he ordered new military strikes against Iraq. The president said Iraq's refusal to cooperate with U.N. weapons inspectors presented a threat to the entire world. "Saddam (Hussein) must not be allowed to threaten his neighbors or the world with nuclear arms, poison gas or biological weapons," Clinton said.

    "Their mission is to attack Iraq's nuclear, chemical and biological weapons programs and its military capacity to threaten its neighbors," said Clinton. Clinton also stated that, while other countries also had weapons of mass destruction, Hussein is in a different category because he has used such weapons against his own people and against his neighbors.

    "In halting our airstrikes in November, I gave Saddam a chance -- not a license. If we turn our backs on his defiance, the credibility of U.S. power as a check against Saddam will be destroyed," the president explained......snip~

    Our Armed Forces, Police, Firemen, Teachers, Prison Guards, Trade Unions--the list is endless--are all drug-tested.

    The "Leaders" of this Nation should be out front on this issue, versus just do as I say .

    It always goes back to administrative overlap--always has.
    Revisionist history against just one party has a well-known name.

    What shape was Iraq in when the USA was feeding their war machine against Iran in the 1980s?
    When we were also involved with multiple arms deals with the Iranians ?

    Notice how if you use the word Iran.....how Bill Clinton's words still Rings true.

    If we turn our backs on his defiance, the credibility of U.S. power as a check against Saddam will be destroyed," the president explained......snip~

    For one I hate Bill Clinton more than Bush.

    Two, Bush attacked Iraq for oil. Not any threat to the US.

    Three, Dick Cheney said years earlier, under GHWB that if we removed Saddam it would destabilize the ME. They knew this & did it anyway.

    It was about money, power, & oil. Not some made up threat.

    Not counting the first sentence, AMEN!

    And in the first sentence, Clinton was much better than Bush 43...but Bush 41 was better than Clinton. And yes, I'm a progressive saying that.
