And that little tax that we were hit with not too long ago (Obamacare) which was only supposed to originally cost $900 billion was just retallied to the tune of $2.8 TRILLION (and the democraps are trying to add taxes on top of the tax).
(and there were WMD's)
Spending money on the health of a nation makes more sense than a useless phony war.

Not the kind of "WMD they were talking about".... don't so easily believe propaganda..

Yeah hrmmmph! that is what they said about a lone American voice shouting that the yanks had no proof of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and that Husien had nothing to do with 911, and you dicks shouted him down and called him a traitor,he was proved right though wasn't he and you knobs just look stupid....Soooooo, just because everyone believes it to be right does not necessarily mean that it is right eh! knucklehead.

You got that almost correctly.

Here is the correct statement:
"The first sign of a FOOL is someone who says HE'S always right, and the 'sure' sign of a TOOL is the person who believes such.

Remember: The fool proposes (a thing), whilst the tool supposes (it's true).

Your answer is ........?

Provide historical proofs for your reply.

What does any of that have to do with him attacking a neighbor country and the UN having to defend those neighbors? What does any of your rant have to do with Saddam violating the treaty which included UN inspections? Violate treaty = resumed war. What does any of that have to do with him rearming (in violation of treaty)? Violate treaty = resume war. The UN decided to resume the war (after repeated treaty violations), the U.S. was only ONE voice in the decision to resume the war. By the way it IS proven that he murdered his own people by the thousands.

Unless of course, unless you are someone who "Is" always right, and then your saying is just mindless twaddle, and you are the fool!

It has to do with the fact that you (Americans) went to war with Iraq based on lies, that Husien was involved in 911 and that he had WMDs not for any other reason, and yet you have conveniently forgotten that simple fact, why? because rather than face the truth that your government lied you and all that damage and loss of lives was preventable, you cover those lies, with more lies..It seems the American government and it's people have learnt nothing here so it can and will be repeated in any country of their choosing. If, America went to war with every country that committed genocide, or refused to trade with any country that brutalised or oppressed it's people, you would be broke, the point is they don't and didn't so why not? and why Irag? they are the questions a person looking for answers would be asking themselves, not making excuses to justify an unjustifiable war based on lies.

Ahomana: Your whole worth as a country is based on capitalism, the ability to chase the American dream, and now you complain because that capitalistic ideal controls everything?...boo hoo...Your whole system is just as bad as any of those governments you oppose because the ugly side of letting you do as you please(the republic) is that there is total chaos where monopolies thrive, a handful own much and decide the fate of many and your ignorant masses are just as controlled as if they lived in Saudi Arabia...you just don't see it, you crazy nut.

Kim Jong Un is an inbred nutcase from a family of nutters he is a overgrown baby with the maturity of a gnat so WTF is America doing catering/inciting a madman by flying stealth bombers over South Korea. Talk about waving a red rag at a bull...Everyone in the world knows KJU has no brains or diplomacy to run a country, but (sheesh) get a grip America you should know better than to react to a lunatic who shoots his yap off at the yanks every chance he gets, are you trying to force his hand?
