You just make this stuff up as you go don't you DB? Yeah Sadaam had such a formidable war machine that we rolled into Bagdad in a matter of days after we invaded. In fact his forces couldn't fight their way into a whorehouse and probably wouldn't know what to do if they did. Also Sadaam didn't give a rat's patootie what we did in Afghanistan. He had no use for groups like Al Qaeda and kept them out of his country. UN sanctions? Just how many UN sanctions were there against Israel since its formation?<quoted text>
Aside from the obvious fact that it would have been the stupidest thing in the world to do the exact same thing in the exact same place against the exact same enemy as the Soviets did while leaving Saddam Hussein in our rear with a war machine he rebuilt with money from the UN's oil-for-food scam, there were 18 UN sanctions he was in violation of, in addition to the obvious fact that Valerie Plame said Iraq had an active WMD program before Robert Novak outed her.
Combine that with the fact that it didn't matter where we went to fight the war the Arabs started in their own back yard, the Arab jihad would go there to fight us. So, how about we split the Arab Islamist Terrorist Empire that stretched unbroken from Morocco to Tibet in half, and put the US Armed forces between the obvious terrorist-producing countries of Iran, Syria and Saudi Arabia, while at the same time take out a country that is actively harboring international terrorists... Iraq.
The best choice for a location to fight the war the Arabs started in their own backyard was Iraq.
Valerie Plame never said that Iraq had WMD you damned liar, in fact the investigations of her group found that Iraq's WMD programs had long been abandoned.
Iraq never actively harbored terrorists liar, Sadaam didn't want these religious whack jobs in his country.
You're an idiot and a liar DB!
