Wrong Stupid! In the case of Korea there was an actual military invasion that threatened to conflagrate the entire region. This was not the case with Iraq. Sadaam's army was weak and demoralized and couldn't have invaded a whorehouse.<quoted text>
You probably said the same thing about the Korean War as many others did in the immediate aftermath.
Can you honestly argue South Korea wasn't worth it today?

Wrong nitwit! Water boarding is torture and we prosecuted its use as a war crime after WWII. There's nothing "up in the air" about it. Yes we do use it on intelligence trainees to teach them how to resist it. You obviously don't see the difference between participating voluntarily in a training regimen and being involuntarily tortured.
Panetta never implied that water boarding or in right wing PC parlance "enhanced interrogation" ever contributed to information that ultimately tracked down Bin Laden. John McCain who is on the Senate Intelligence Committee stated;
“It was not torture, or cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment of detainees that got us the major leads that ultimately enabled our intelligence community to find Osama bin Laden,”
He also stated;
“Ultimately this debate is about far more than technical or practical issues. It is about far more than whether torture works or does not work. It is about far more than utilitarian matters. Ultimately, this is about morality.”
“We are America, and we hold ourselves to a higher standard,”
And yet you keep insisting you're some kind of Christian.

Once again stupid, the massacre of the Kurds occurred during the Reagan administration and we didn't do a goddamn thing about it because he was our ally against Iran. The Kurds were being protected by the no fly zone in the north when we invaded so what happened in the past had no bearing on anything.
The ironic fact is that the real victor in the Iraq war that Bush initiated was Iran and they didn't have to lose one soul to achieve that victory but we lost over 4000.
You're an idiot Carol!

Flack clings to this lame excuse even though George W Bush never cited it.
Just how far will right whiners go to provide excuses for their President's lies to go to war & kill over 4,000 of our sons & daughters soldiers?
Have you no shame?
I wonder how many countries supported terrorists groups & why haven't we decided to invade each & every one of them. They provided far more support in allowing these groups to take shelter in their countries.
George W Bush said Sadam likely had nukes & were going to sell them to Al Qaeda
George W Bush said Sadam had links to Al Qaeda
George W Bush said he was spreading democracy.
George W Bush never said we invaded Iraq because Sadam sent some families of suicide bombers $25K.

Buddy, here's a clue. You're about as funny as a corpse. You can't stand your ground and debate because you have no brain to debate with.

Just as the real benefactor in the Korean conflict was Japan who enjoys one of the finest trade arrangements in history. Mitsubishi alone manufactures over 250 products in S. Korea including the massive power plants that power ships, drilling platforms etc.
The Deepwater Horizon was built in S. Korea.

Now we applaud the same federal flunkies who screwed up to begin with because they caught the guy after the fact. This guy was probably on a short list of subjects within an hour of the bombing. Then it was just a matter of finding him on (private) surveillance cameras.
Good job, FBI.
Now, how about rounding up the rest of his kind and deporting them?

Inspired by Chechen
Warlord on State
April 21, 2013
The Daily Mail reports today that
despite the fact the FBI had Tamerlan
Tsarnaev under surveillance for five
years, the agency discounted the
possibility he was in direct contact
with Doku Umarov, a man described as
“Russia’s Bin Laden,” and thus posed a
threat to the United States.
From the Daily Mail:
According to an intelligence source,
Russia remained convinced that
Tamerlan, an ethnic Chechen, was in
‘direct contact’ with Islamist militants,
most likely based in the strife-torn
southern Russian region of Dagestan,
where he lived for two years with his
family prior to moving to the US.
During a six-month visit to Russia last
year – a trip US investigators are
investigating – it is understood
Tamerlan visited Dagestan, which is
now regarded as more unstable than
One theory is that Tamerlan and
Dzhokhar, who was in thrall to his
older brother, may have been
‘inspired’ by a rebel leader known as
Russia’s Bin Laden.
Doku Umarov, like the Tsarnaev
brothers, is an ethnic Chechen from
the war-torn Caucasus region that lies
between Europe and Central Asia.
The Daily Mail’s explanation, however,
omits a few crucial details – namely
that Doku Umarov, like his supposed
mentor Osama bin Laden, works in the
interest of U.S. intelligence and the

Intelligence Claim: The Tsarnaev
brothers were double agents who
decoyed US into terror trap
April 21, 2013
The big questions buzzing over Boston Bombers Tamerlan
and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev have a single answer: It emerged
in the 102 tense hours between the twin Boston Marathon
bombings Monday, April 15 – which left three dead, 180
injured and a police officer killed at MIT – and Dzohkhar’s
capture Friday, April 19 in Watertown.
The conclusion reached by DEBKAfile’s counterterrorism
and intelligence sources is that the brothers were double
agents, hired by US and Saudi intelligence to penetrate
the Wahhabi jihadist networks which, helped by Saudi
financial institutions, had spread across the restive
Instead, the two former Chechens betrayed their mission
and went secretly over to the radical Islamist networks.
By this tortuous path, the brothers earned the dubious
distinction of being the first terrorist operatives to import
al Qaeda terror to the United States through a winding
route outside the Middle East – the Caucasus.
This broad region encompasses the autonomous or semi-
autonomous Muslim republics of Dagestan, Ingushetia,
Kabardino-Balkaria, Chechnya, North Ossetia and
Karachyevo-Cherkesiya, most of which the West has never
Moscow however keeps these republics on a tight military
and intelligence leash, constantly putting down violent
resistance by the Wahhabist cells, which draw support
from certain Saudi sources and funds from the Riyadh
government for building Wahhabist mosques and schools
to disseminate the state religion of Saudi Arabia.
The Saudis feared that their convoluted involvement in
the Caucasus would come embarrassingly to light when a
Saudi student was questioned about his involvement in the
bombng attacks while in a Boston hospital with badly
