Learn the benefits of secularism. Now if they could only get this memo in the middle east. But I guess you evangelicals cannot teach it to them.
Lead by example.

<quoted text>Looking at the first two articles, I see their is no connection made between any weapons found and Saddam.
Quote in second article,
"As yet there is no conclusive proof that Syrian chemical weapons can be traced to Saddam Hussein. "
Need I read all the articles cited to prove you are just reaching for justifications to send our boys to an unnecessary death?
And lets say, just for sake of argument, some of these weapons were sent to Syria. Kind of shows the invasion of Iraq was futile still.
as I said.. I agree we should have Never sent troops into Iraq... We should have taken out every thing that moved the instant they targeted any of our aircraft then walked away... Let them fix their own country... My view is that any country that does not follow our rules to the letter does not get our support or protection.. Any Country that attempts to target or destroy any US asset anywhere in the world we smack them hard and walk away and let them bleed...

I was against sending ground troops into Iraq from day one... I was against sending ground troops into Afghanistan other than Spec Op's teams to supply targets.... I was against sending weapons to Afghanistan Freedom Fighters when the Soviets were there... I was against sending air assets to Bosnia when the Serb's were getting upity... I was against sending air assets to Egypt and Libya... And I am Absolutely against firing missiles into Syria.... Now if Syria fires on any US assets or the Assets of our Allies then we should reserve the right to destroy everything that flies or moves in Syria..Then Walk Away...

Here's what my common sense tells me... If a building of this magnitude was struck dead center, it stands to reason that the portion above the impact would fall either to one side or the other. What I question is all 4 beams failing exactly @ the same time to bring the buildings str8 down twice. At least that's what video's show on several news broadcasts being aired live. I'm not sure how many other buildings were demolished after the towers fell due to structural damage from the impact.

<quoted text>The first gulf war was about Iraq invading it's neighbors.
We were still at a state of War at the time of the second invasion into Iraq... We had a Signed Cease Fire agreement with specific requirements on Iraq of which they contentiously broke for 12 years...

While again We should never get involved in Nation Building and should have simple smacked them each time they broke the cease fire agreement I just want to make it clear there was not Two Wars in Iraq... One War started when they invaded out ally as Kuwait was... at the time of the second invasion we were still at a state of War....

Bullchit...and bullchit.
(and this isn't even counting the documented cases we haveN'T seen)
There were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq after all.
The massive cache of almost 400,000 Iraq war documents released by the WikiLeaks Web site revealed that small amounts of chemical weapons were found in Iraq and continued to surface for years after the 2003 US invasion, Wired magazine reported.
The documents showed that US troops continued to find chemical weapons and labs for years after the invasion, including remnants of Saddam Hussein's chemical weapons arsenal -- most of which had been destroyed following the Gulf War.
In August 2004, American troops were able to buy containers from locals of what they thought was liquid sulfur mustard, a blister agent, the documents revealed. The chemicals were triple-sealed and taken to a secure site.
Also in 2004, troops discovered a chemical lab in a house in Fallujah during a battle with insurgents. A chemical cache was also found in the city.

Here is a insiders view (Retired General Colin Powell) showing we should have never invaded Iraq. Flip flop.

Colin Powell supports the increasingly well-documented conclusion that there was actually no decision-making point -- or decision-making process -- during the events between the 9/11 terrorist attacks and the March 2003 invasion of Iraq, which had nothing to do with those attacks.

It's because of the exoskeleton design... The cross beams do not have to fail at the exact same time for such a failure mode... a single cross beam would have transferred load to the other cross beams and those beams would have detached from the exoskeleton with the exoskeleton maintaining the vertical condition as it collapsed ...

The Designer of the buildings was questions and stated that he was surprised they stood as long as they did considering the damage and fires without suppression but said they failed exactly as design would predict as the failure mode and was one of the considerations in the design to maintain the smallest possible foot print in case of a catastrophic collapse... A Non exoskeleton structure could very well have tilted and fallen horizontally and the damage would have been far greater to the city....

Yep.. It's just plain stupid to stop one of our enemies from slaughtering another of our enemies... The more Islamist kill other Islamist the less we will have to kill later.... When they go outside their own people and attack our assets or the assets of our allies then beat them with a stick and walk away and let them starve in mass... Don't care if they need water because we take out their dams, don't care if they behead their women or car bomb their mosques.... Don't care if they are left with 2 donkeys and a cart to carry on ... if they step outside killing their own then we smack the dog crap out of them and walk away...

I know jet fuel burns around 13 - 1500 degrees, not hot enough to Melt Steel, and the degree to melt steel is around 2700 degrees. I also know that to bring down a building that size does not require melting to get the job done, just the weakening of the steel could bring it down, I just question how it appeared to be falling inside itself and aftermath only shows small remanents left standing, but then again, those were the largest buildings to come down in that manner so there is nothing to compare to.

Yes, over "oil" as Saddam had depleted his own nation into failed statehood by that time.(1) It was during that time period then, that also intensified bin_ladens (well known of) extreme dislike for western "infidels" that allied with Israel, and then with Kuwait to the point of what we then expereinced (after years of thought and then planning) on 9/11.

1. The First Persian Gulf War, also known as the Gulf War, Jan.–Feb., 1991, was an armed conflict between Iraq and a coalition of 32 nations including the United States, Britain, Egypt, France, and Saudi Arabia. It was a result of Iraq's invasion of Kuwait on Aug. 2, 1990; Iraq then annexed Kuwait, which it had long claimed. Iraqi president Saddam Hussein declared that the invasion was a response to overproduction of oil in Kuwait, which had cost Iraq an estimated billion a year when oil prices fell. Hussein also accused Kuwait of illegally pumping oil from Iraq's Rumaila oil field.

Anything else you'd like to discuss?

I note your posts today skip all around this concept and it is the main point of the debate.
Saddam was a major "catalyst". Had he not invaded Kuwait, things may have been a lot different...then and now.

(and there's nothing that will ever convince me any different, not even adding certain other aspects to the whole big picture, so don't even bother trying.)

NOTHING you can say will ever change my opinion either. NOTHING.

I respect Powell, he knows the realities-and he also apparently thinks the U.S. has already BOTCHED with Syria right from the gates of the world stage "bow".

The beams did not all fail at once and the building top did fall sideways. This can clearly be seen on video.
The top then pushed down in the lower levels and pancaked.
