That, and the fact that the UN was never going to do anything about him, and the fact that he was the king of all terrorists.

There's a difference between saying they are, and they may become.


--------------------
You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

Exactly. There's a HUGE difference. Up until the Iraqi invasion, "may become" wasn't sufficient to justify a war. "Imminent threat" was necessary. But Bush changed the rules, and decided "may become" is good enough for war, basically giving himself free reign to attack anyone in the world if Americans are willing to buy into the "may become" argument.

Let's see, Osama did the world trade centers, the Pentagon, bombing of the U.S. embassies in Nairobi, Kenya and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and the attack of the U.S.S. Cole. What sorts of international terrorism is "the king" responsible for?

No shit?

Seriously though, I agree in principle. As my posts will show in a search, I always said I hoped we wouldn't go in.

That being said, I'm not sure we can always afford to wait. In these days of suitcase nukes, bio & chemical weapons, waiting may turn out to be a big mistake.

And I have NO doubt that many of those who bitch about Bush going into Iraq, will bitch just as loud because he didn't stop whatever major event comes next.

saddam hussein was a nasty dude. the fact that he's gone shouldn't be anything anyone is sad about.

whether or not he was actually a security threat to the united states is something i'm personally not too sure about.

Fair enough. I can't argue with that.

Cornholio, please change your avatar back. Beavis was way better than that fag(and by that I mean no offence to actual homosexuals) you've got in your avatar now.

If my avatar looks familiar, I got him from here.  He's the guy raising some "timid" objections.  That just cracked me up!  :grin:

That comic was funny as hell. So you are a stupid moon lover, huh? Actually I am a moon lover myself. Without it, very bad things would happen.

Haha!  Well, I just want to try him out for a few weeks.  I think he'll grow on people.  By the way Silversoul, you have an animated gif in your sig which is linked to the shroomery.  How'd you do that?  I can't seem to get it to work with mine (I have to link it to an external website which could go down anyday).  Can you try uploading it and posting it if it works???  :mushroom2:

Won't happen. He, while a poor republican, is better than any of those schmos running against him.

I predict it'll be a long time before you see the dems back in control. Too many people have learned a painful lesson.




here that? they're all "schmos". no use arguing, LDS has the truth. and the truth is a one liner.



it's dangerous and relativistic to declare all politics "equal", this is the same tripe that got bush the election (see: nader, ralph). the truth is that politics has always been about choosing the lesser of evils, and there's nothing inherently "wrong" with that.

if gore had won, the environment would be better, the mideast wouldn't have become so absolutely poloraized, (see: bush playing right into the radical islam hand) and we'd probably be moving towards pot legalization and good healthcare.

oh, wait, never mind, all dems are "insert name" cause LDS says so. forget what I just said, cause LDS and his big ford truck are real americans.

Your obsession with me, while flattering, seems a bit.... odd.
