But less than 50% of Dems in both the House and Senate voted for the Iraq Resolution.
So what's your bullshit lies about 'the entire Democrat Party'??
Oh, it's just another lie from Ol' Smokey!!
My mistake.

111 Democrats voted aye and 147 voted nay.

However, if all democrats had voted nay in both the house and the senate, it wouldn't have passed.

So, technically, they passed it.

I should mention that the Iraqi's were not capable of discovering their own oil.
But__it wasn't always a shthole, Babylon was once the center of Islam, the worlds trade routes and learning throughout most of the Abbasid Caliphate in Baghdad which came to an abrupt end in 1258.
That's a long time ago lily but that's where much of Islam remains stuck in time.
The glory days of Babylon pre-dated the existence of Islam. In fact, the arrival of Islam coincided with the fall of Babylon.

Waiting for Demos/Tenzing to come out of the closet.

Democrat fave Nate Silver says Republicans will hold the House and gain 4 to 5 seats in the Senate, perhaps more if they avoid fools like Akin.

Alan Greenspan and General John Abizaid have both admitted the Iraq war was all about oil.
You're as stubborn as your picture to deny it.
Or, more likely, you're just an idiot who believed Bush.
Most Americans know the war was for oil and it was an abject failure.
Yeah well most Americans voted for that dunderhead who's in office too, but the only thing that proved is Obama gets along well with fools - which is pretty self evident reading your posts.

Hey listen, no one ever said Iraq was Utopia. But, it's hell now, thanks to our intervention. If a country has always been under a dictatorship; it's not a quick process to change into democracy.
Sanctions are not a perfect solution, but it does bring about pressure to resolve a problem. Under Sadam Hussein, the terrorists that tried to start trouble were killed. Now, it's a breeding ground.
Maybe you'll find this informative.

Saddam Hussein's right-hand man, Tariq Aziz, has accused Barack Obama of 'leaving Iraq to the wolves' by pulling out combat troops from the country.

Iraq's former deputy prime minister said the United States would destroy the country if it pressed on with the policy of withdrawing combat forces to concentrate on the war in Afghanistan

"We are all victims of America and Britain," the one time official told the Guardian. "They killed our country in many ways. When you make a mistake you need to correct a mistake, not leave Iraq to its death."

Speaking from his jail cell in Baghdad, the late dictator's henchman said that he had been initially encouraged when Mr Obama was elected president because he thought he was going to correct some of former president George Bush's 'mistakes'.

"But Obama is a hypocrite," he added. "He is leaving Iraq to the wolves."

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-13007...

Instead of finishing what we started in Iraq to give the new government a fighting chance, Obama decided his way was best just because he said so. He wanted to get back at Bush, I suppose.

Try again Galt__start with the prophet Muhammad and see where the Caliphates take ya. And notice that I closed with Baghdad instead of Babylon

And then check out the Mongol invasions which dropped Islam to it's knees__where in a perfect world it would have remained.

Sheeeeeeat on a splinter, dumb carol, but do you see no problem in denouncing the president of the United States on the word of "Saddam Husein's right-hand man," "the late dictator's henchman"? Are you pleading guilty to treason or sedition or both?

Get ready for another big bailout.

Meanwhile, Galt is still waiting for the FEMA man with the bottled water and the check. Apparently earthquakes are not considered as serious as rainstorms.

FARGO, N.D.(AP)-- With its ominously titled slideshow, "Get ready for a big one," the National Weather Service told flood-weary residents in the Fargo area Thursday to prepare for one of the Red River's five largest crests this summer, an outlook that prompted city and county officials to plead for permanent flood protection.

The latest weather service flood outlook for Fargo and neighboring Moorhead, Minn., includes a 50 percent chance that the river would top 38 feet later this spring, which would surpass the fifth-highest crest of 37.34 feet in 1969. There's a 10 percent chance of an all-time record.

The National Weather Service blamed the Bush tax cuts for the impending flood.

PS: Do you practice being syoopid?
costs never go up. They always remain the same. At least in Eed's world of make believe.

Eed's budgets $200 a month for his visit to the local prostitute. Eed's money is a little sparse now that his hours were cut back at work. So Eed found a slightly heavier prostitute than will lower his monthly expenditures to $100 a month.

Eed cut his prostitute budget.

But according to Eed he didn't cut his spending.

No biggie IMO.
Also in play is that the housing market is making a big comeback (in certain areas) giving some investors a much needed option-alternative to the stock market.

The housing market improvement is largely investors seeking bargains, not any real growth in new homeowners.
