This thread is retarded.
So is my little sister, she calls her self santa anna and gets french fries all over herself
Hmm, we can try it your way then, I'm done being nice to you. What I really think is that I've done a lot more military type stuff than you have, if you had gotten yelled at by the types of people I have you'd probably start crying, that unlike you I really would join the service if I felt I had found my calling (I nearly joined anyway), I wouldn't claim to support the war by arguing on a programming forum online , few here agree with you, there is not support back home, we will be out within two years, Iraq is and will be a failed state similarly to Vietnam, and once we're out we can bomb Iran.Why don't we try this on the terrorists? Maybe if we beg them nicely, they'll leave us alone.
All I have to do now sit back and let events prove me right.
There, I've taken the retalitory approach, which is what you wanted. Now I'm taking the approach where I remove this thread from what shows up when I enter the general discussion forum.

You know what date is on this coin? 1958. It's been travelling twenty two years to get here.
And now it's here.
And I'm here.
And it's either heads or tails.
And you have to say...
I am confused ..can you tell me once again why Americans troops are in iraq??

To prevent this, apparentlyWhich might be a valid point if we were fighting the Nazis or the Soviets or any other formal army, but we're not.the armies of the enemy march into your neighborhood.
In addition, they are there to be fighting the very same terrorists that would be attempting to perpetrate terrorist acts on US soil and elsewhere if they were not otherwise preoccupied with Iraq.
> At this point, the enemy is not a formal one, although it is receiving the support and assistance of at least one such formal one.
It must suck to be terrified of Iran invading the US. Think about how ridiculous that is for a minute.
The backing of a regime like Iran provides terrorist groups with means that they otherwise would not have, operating on their own. If a nuke goes off, I would not expect people like you to think it justifiable for the United States to launch one back at Iran, especially if Iran claimed that they had no connection with the group that set it off.
> I'm not concerned with Iran invading the United States.
You were the one to bring up "enemies marching through our streets"
> I'm concerned with Iran sending nuclear weapons into Israel and the United States and causing major carnage.
If I'm not mistaken, Iran doesn't have any nukes, much less one that can reach the US. Israel can take care of themselves.
> I would not expect people like you to think it justifiable for the United States to launch one back at Iran, especially if Iran claimed that they had no connection with the group that set it off.
People like me? What the hell is that supposed to mean?
edit: You know what? Forget it. I'm not going to waste my time arguing with someone who disliked the TV show MacGyver (of all things) based on the "liberal message". You've clearly made up your mind and are too deep into your persecution complex to ever change it.

I was merely offering one extreme statement vs another extreme statement.
And yes, Israel can take care of themselves.
Or perhaps I meant people that mock the threat that Iran poses.
Oh, well. At least you lasted longer than Bob did.

to disarm Iraq of weapons of mass destruction.
to end Saddam Hussein's support for terrorism.
and to free the Iraqi people.
but usa gives Iraq to shia so we start read headlines like this "Shia police' kill dozens in Iraq" etc..taking control of their own country.
and how could help Iraq by killing 655,000 ?!!
in addition they were no terrorist in Iraq before 2003.
rap 14-year-old Abeer Qassim Hamza and shot and killed her and an her family
just imagine that Abeer is your daughter, or you are one of the prisoners above in picture.what would be your reaction ?
the SAME terrorists that created by the United States, Britain, Australia and Poland invasion of Iraq !!!they are there to be fighting the very same terrorists that would be attempting to perpetrate terrorist acts on US soil
Under Saddam, you had the minority sunnis that were slaughtering shiites, so it wasn't all rosey before the war.
As far as your reference to no terrorists being in Iraq, I would have to challenge that. I know people keep saying that al-qaeda had nothing to do with Iraq, as per the 9/11 Commission Report, but at the same time, Saddam was funding suicide bombings in Israel. He was definitely not helping the situation in the middle east, to put it mildly.
Taking that statement to be true, to me that means that the US should be cleaning up their mess, which means that they did right in removing Saddam and invading Iraq, although I always hear it coming from the other side as if it's a reason why they never should have invaded in the first place.
