    To remove a potiental threat.

    Also, whenever the President is in political trouble and needs to distract the dumbmasses.

    I think we need to take out Iran's nuke facilities. They have already said they will wipe the USA and Israel off the map. I support pre-emptive or helping Israel hit it.
    I disagree war is bad for the econ. We had TWO wars under W and the econ was amazing until liberals took over CONgress in 07.

    I think that all of us were tricked, a huge emotional response (9-11-01).
    People are easily fooled when emotions are predominant.

    I disagree. There was no trickery. Muslims attacked us 911. That started it. W decided to fight back. He went after the world's worst terrorist, Saddam Hussein, took him out and won the war. Mission accomplished. The war on terror is ongoing. As long as we have people whose version of their Bible tells them to kill us, we will always have violence and war.

    saddam had nothing to do with 911, Afganistan was for 911, Iraq was Bush cleaning up after his daddy.

    I never said Saddam had anything to do with 911. He was the world's worst terrorist. He threated to destroy us. We beat him at his game. Bush does not clean up after daddy. W did the world a favor taking out Saddam who was a vile, demonic monster who killed/tortured 1.5 MILLION of his own people.

    How little he knew, but he was basically right.
    Was he? We owe almost all of the power and wealth we've enjoyed for the past century to our involvement in the two World Wars. It's a shame that most of Europe has lost their taste for war and the Russians aren't an effective enemy any more. I'm not sad to see international communism in its death throes, but at least the Soviets could set us up with real wars on a regular basis.

    The most basic benefit that warfare provides the species is that it causes surges in the birth rate and encourages exogamous breeding. And since most of the new fathers are soldiers, it encourages breeding among people who are fitter than the general population.
