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....
I am not disputing Bush's legal right to invade, I am disputing the reasons given for invading.

I've never saw any blueprints of the design elements so I was guessing on it's infrastructure.
The basic idea was that the majority of the vertical load was through the outside steel skin and the cross beams were just floor support and tied the supporting exoskeleton to keep it from bulging out as additional load was added... An there was a center shaft to support the elevator and electrical, cooling and fire suppression systems..

Once a single floors cross beam become weak and they start to bend and that causes then to pull away from the outside skins and shear their connecting bolts, once one beam breaks loose the others can't support the load and also give way... That floor then drops onto the floor below with enough force to shear its cross beam connecting bolts and it pancakes down within the exoskeleton but just behind that the exoskeleton now has not cross beams to tie the walls together and they domino down ... The pressure on the floors below is like a pneumatic cylinder causing the floors below to become highly pressurized and blowing out the windows explosively below the point of collapse... and due to the energy involved (remember every hammer blow, every steel post raised, every piece of furniture placed is Stored Energy) after the top section started down the remainder of floors would have no resistance and fall rate would have been about free fall speeds....

I personally have no doubt that the reason we did so was to create a battle field to draw fighters into that we had better control of... Not actually a bad plan... We pick our field of battle and draw the enemy into it and kill them in mass... Our problem occurred when we stopped fighting our enemy and wanted to be seen as nice guys and rebuild a country in our image...

I would have no problem if we would have hit Iraq, went in and destroyed every military and governmental asset we could find and , killed every Islamic Bat Shite Crazy we could and then walked away...

With a warning to do the same if any other country targeted or fired on our assets...

Now there are some countries that might strike us just because we left the impression we would rebuild them better than before ... Screw that...

My view is strike hard and leave them bleeding on the sand and not a single bottle of water or mre ... then the next ones might not find attacking US interests so appetizing...

In one sense, I can see that design being brilliant as not leaving such a physical footprint. On the other hand, that same design probably caused more deaths, than a conventional design and reason enough to scrap that design element altogether.

The heart produces enzymes when having an attack.

Actually it could also be argued it save 1,000 of lives since its design handled the impacts of a fully fueled large jet plane flying at full speed into them and stood long enough to evacuate the vast majority of people in the buildings...

If a structure such as the Empire State was hit with the same force it very well could have and probably would have sheared off and hit surrounding building on it's way down...

As it was when the State Building was hit by a small low speed empty of fuel bomber in in WW2 time frame there was great concern that it would topple over...

there were an estimate 16,000 to 20,000 people in the Towers below the impact points and normally over 150,000 people passed through the towers daily... over 50,000 people actually worked in the towers but because of the time it happened about 50% had not made it to work at time of first impact... If you take our all the people on the planes you come up with just over 2000 people killed due to the towers falling and the vast majority were above the impact points and had no way to get out as all stairs and elevators were severed... So my take it that it was a Great design that saved 1000's of lives... Until a normal box and frame construction building is hit with a jet doing almost the speed of sound fully loaded with Jet A fuel and a couple hundred people and their baggage we cannot conclude which would be the best design for such conditions...

not sure that the heart itself produces the enzymes but that it leaks out of cells during damage occurring while having a heart attack.

It actually produces them all the time but they are released when cells are damaged during an attack or other event that causes cell damage...

the enzymes are protein and shows up in the blood cells during attacks. My brother is going thru that right now.

I understand fully... What part of what I stated was incorrect? You stated that the heart pumped blood, nothing else.. I said it produced Cardiac Enzymes , that's something else... Now I could have mentioned it also has a nerve feedback to the lungs, brain and cardio vascular system that lets the assorted systems change their outputs and control signals to deal with transient conditions but I figured you might have a cardiac episode and stuck with a single simple fact...

Like I said, "Meathead" and wrong at the same time... great combination...

Cardiac Enzymes are Specific to heart cellular mitosis and as such are produced within the cells structure within the hearts muscle tissue..

Otherwise they would be found in the body as they would have to migrate to the heart to be incorporated within the cells..

Sorry to hear that.. Give him my best.. My oldest brother died during a heart cath test when he was 27, My other brother had a major heart attack when he was in his 40's and my dad has had 4 open heart surgeries and 5 bypasses... so I have made a point in learning what the pump does...

My husband has been in the military for four years and is about to move to the officer side. This is a problem for us. We both have decided in the last two years the bible ( which has been fed to us since babies) is ridiculous. We couldn't take care of our family without the military but.... We have become pretty liberal since my husband has watch children die over there that are the same age as our little man. It's easy for people to say we're doing the right things when their family is safe at home and they don't have to see the pain of our bullshit.
During war it is tough for all in the military religious or liberal. I remember when I was Vietnam reading some graffiti while sitting over a honey bucket that war does not decide who's right or wrong only who's left. I never thought I was serving God by being in the military.

You said your husband is moving over to Officer. Does he have a college degree and IQ that qualifies him to do so. What type of degree does he have to qualify him for being a officer? Some go to OCS and other schools that qualify them for Warrant Officer. What branch of the military does he serve in? The VA will help veterans with jobs if they leave the service.

It takes a dedicated and strong willed women to stick by her man in the military and the same applies to your husband. During peace-time things can be better for married ones like military housing living on post with neightbors to mingle similar civilian life.

The religious ones posting on this thread think that the babies really do not die as we may think but go "Bingo" right to heaven. YAA believes that the babies are recycled back into muslim or any country to be born again and maybe killed multiple times and Bingo back to heaven again to be recycled multiple times.

The Mormons "Du what" believes with these murdered or decease babies that Jesus Christ had qualified them for a home to one of the three heavens permanently "Donkey Kong as Q would say" and maybe be a God one day like Jesus.

Answer me this... in the last 40 years Smoking has dropped by 70% in the US.... If Smoking caused heart disease then why has New Onset of heart disease remained constant and in some populations increased?

Smoking by Woman has dropped by 60% in the last 40 years yet Lung Cancer in women is Up by 3%....

The Only so called smoking related disease that has Went down is Lung Cancer in men but only by 7%

Every other so called Smoking related (New Onset) disease has remained the same or when up as the number of people in the US that smoke has dropped by 70%...

Now Death Rates have dropped but that is due to earlier diagnosis and better treatments but if Smoking was the driving force once claimed then New Onset of those diseases should at least semi parallel the decrease in use...
