Just to have to answer this before I go.

Tell me, how does the rich being less rich help the poor - many of whom can't even help themselves?

Lack of education, children out of wedlock and addiction are the primary causes of poverty.

Of course, nowadays it's Obamacare strangling the job market.

In declaring someone an enemy combatant where is the due process on that classification?
Plant IED's, lob pipe bombs and grenades to maim and murder others, may reap the hell of what they sowed.

The phrase "it's like talking to a brick wall..." has a personal meaning now.

In the meantime, look up the timeline of the UN resolutions.

Later.

Well, Bravo, Carol.
Now who was president on September 11, 2001? You know, the guy Tenet warned about an impending attack six weeks in advance.
Begins with a B... ends with an H.
You may recall before 9-11 we didn't have all the airport baloney which followed.
Too bad we didn't-it sure has helped stop some of the radical insanity.

Learn to read.
Over your head, phag. My message to an alien nutjob like you was:

Bush went into Iraq, and the Democrats also voted to use force because of what they were told by the intelligence community.

Get an adult to explain it to you, if you can't read, moron.

You wanted the definition of "redistribution of Wealth"
I gave it.
You then went off streaming about working hard.
WTF.
"real dumb"
Give it up. Your definition was BS. In your world it is right and moral to penalize those who work hard and produce. In your mind it is right that they redistribute their wealth to take care of the lazy, those with their hands out. Working hard is a topic you are not familiar with. In your world the fruits of success are not for those who earned them, they should be happy they are donating to the lazy.

Are really you THAT fkn stupid?
Yesterday, troops at a training facility in the western Iraqi desert came across a bottle labelled "tabun," a nerve gas and chemical weapon Iraq is banned from possessing.
Closer to Baghdad, troops at Iraq's largest military industrial complex found nerve agent antidotes, documents describing chemical warfare and a white powder that appeared to be used for explosives.
UN weapons inspectors went repeatedly to the vast al Qa Qaa complex, most recently on March 8. But they found nothing during spot visits to some of the 1,100 buildings at the site 40 kilometres south of Baghdad.
Col. John Peabody, engineer brigade commander of the 3rd Infantry Division, said troops found thousands of five-centimetre by 12-centimetre boxes, each containing three vials of white powder, together with documents written in Arabic that dealt with how to engage in chemical warfare.
A senior U.S. official familiar with initial testing said the powder was believed to be explosives. The finding would be consistent with the plant's stated production capabilities in the field of basic raw materials for explosives and propellants.
According to UN weapons inspectors, who spoke on condition of anonymity, the Iraqis filled warheads and artillery shells with explosives at the site and manufactured bomb casings there. The activities, for conventional weaponry, were allowed under UN resolutions. But the resolutions, passed after the 1991 Gulf War, ban Iraq from possessing chemical, biological and nuclear weapons and the long-range missiles to deliver them.
Peabody told an Associated Press reporter that troops at al Qa Qaa also discovered atropine, used to counter the effects of nerve agents, and 2-Pam chloride, which is used in combination with atropine in case of chemical attack.
