At least im dealing in facts. Can you provide any sources for your claim that Iraq was attacked becasue the US government had lowered their risk assesment levels? I quoted memebers of your own government to prove my point. You are just quoting yourself.

That's fine. I think it is fairly obvious that we were willing to deal with the situation in Afghanistan before 9-11. After 9-11 the threat their was not tolerable to us. It is pretty simple. I think someone should ask Powell and Rice why there is such a difference in the two statements for sure though.

Sorry I dont really follow that. Why are you bringing up Afghanistan?

Individuals like Powell and Rice dont make statements like that off their own backs. They are simply the mouthpieces for the government. You are right though, this is a serious questiom that needs to be answered. Cant see it getting much airtime though. Ask the majority of people about this u-turn and they wouldnt even remember it has happened.

Do you really not understand why the US is less tolerant of terrorists, than it was before 9-11?

What does that have to do with Iraq?


--------------------
The above is an extract from my fictional novel, "The random postings of Edame".
:tongue:

In the beginning was the word. And man could not handle the word, and the hearing of the word, and he asked God to take away his ears so that he might live in peace without having to hear words which might upset his equinamity or corrupt the unblemished purity of his conscience.

And God, hearing this desperate plea from His creation, wrinkled His mighty brow for a moment and then leaned down toward man, beckoning that he should come close so as to hear all that was about to be revealed to him.

"Fuck you," He whispered, and frowned upon the pathetic supplicant before retreating to His heavens.

it's sickening. 9/11 has become the catch-all justification for whatever boneheaded military adventure our president wants.

I think this constant mentioning of 9/11 to justify our foreign policy verges on exploitation. I doubt the victims of that day would appreciate it.
