That's right Ken. One man did that all by himself. One man 10 years ago ordered troops and armament to Iraq just because he saw $$$ over there.

Hard to function being that delusional, I'll bet Ken.

As an aside, my son is spending some time in Iraq this summer and the Kurds are extremely appreciative of not being under Sadaam's iron fist. There were a lot of deaths because of his oppression and this would have continued. So all is not in vein.

Personally I think our mistake was not taking him down during the 1st Gulf war. I know many of us serving at the time were disappointed and felt the job was only half done. He should have never been allowed to stay in power.

"The result has not been satisfactory." You must not have talked to Dick Cheney or any of his cronies.

I guess you hadn't heard they'd "restated" that justification (i.e. the Saddam/terrorist collusion).

I cringe when I read a letter that I know is going to overexcite Shaman. He has that little evil smile on his face while he bangs away on his keyboard. Get it all out Shaman so you can go back to watching reruns of MSNBC over and over again, hanging on to every word.

He has to make up for being MIA on the Zimmerman story on Sunday. That was one big crow he had to choke down.

Hey...he's an oil-guy. What would you expect?

"Dick Cheney was secretary of defense from 1989 to 1993, during the administration of President George H.W. Bush. A few years after leaving office, he became chairman and chief executive officer of Halliburton, a Houston-based oil services company.

The report noted that some government officials raised the concern of a potential conflict of interest because of Cheney's former position with Halliburton, but that "White House officials said the mission took priority over whatever political fallout might occur" from awarding contracts to KBR. Since winning the latest version of the LOGCAP contract in 2001, the government has ordered work from KBR worth more than $31 billion."

I don't see a whole-lotta-merit in discussing some "Barney Fife"...who "bit-off, more than he could chew"...got his butt WHUPPED...and, "had" to display his "manhood", by shooting-his-way-out.

That's O.K.

His "Karma Time" is (most-likely) fast-approaching.

Liberal silence on Obama's illegal wars reveals their total hypocrisy over Bush and Iraq.

Bush had both Congressional & UN approval to go into Iraq.

Obama has had no Congressional approval for Libya and neither Congressional nor UN approval for Syria.

Libeal hypocrisy on display!

Drone strikes and firing missiles into another sovereign nation is not "going to war" in your mind, Chuck? Must be your idea of a day at the beach.

Liberals cannot deny that Obama went into Libya illegally and ignored their sacred War Powers Act.

Now, he will supply weapons to Al Qaeda in Syria for his next secret war without the people's consent.

Isn't it funny how liberals ignore Cindy Sheehan now?
