    Let's suppose that there were never any WMD's or terrorists found in Iraq.
    You think the Liberals would be happy getting rid of an evil dictator in Iraq
    that tortured, killed and oppressed his people.

    Sorry, I don't see any difference in what Clinton did in Bosnia versus what Bush did in Iraq other than Bush has a stronger case when you look at the few WMD's and terrorist camps that have been found.
    You may argue that there were only 2 WMD's found so far and I would argue
    that the truth will come out and we will find them or the trail to them as time
    plays out just like I said months ago.

    You may say we should've waited for the UN to join and I would say what about the Oil for food scandal along with the French and Germans giving weapons to Sadaams regime behind our backs.
    You know that would never happen!

    People are arguing we'll be in Iraq forever and I say we need a presence in that part of the world anyway.
    We still have troops in Bosnia after Clinton said we would be out by a certain
    date and it still hasn't happened.

    I think the Liberals are "big UN supporters" that want to support them and other countries no matter what they've done to us which makes me think
    they would support this until our country is no longer what it is today.
    They want a utopia that will more than likely never exist, if it ever does our
    country will ceast to exist as we know it.

    We will no longer be Americans and America won't exist! :911: :usaflagwa

    doesnt matter man, they have an agenda and everything is spun into a web of hatred. Nothing will be portrayed as something done right no matter the are old enough to see what is going on and you have to know you're wasting your time hoping it will change. The public is and always will be easily influenced and video images and messages broadcast that the media decides is newsworthy will be shown over and over til its believed as fact. Happens everyday politically on every level. All you can actually do is see through it and yawn.

    Ah yes, the right wing is nothing but Mr Sunshine- nothing but love. Listen to Limbaugh,Boortz our Koulter- no hate, just love.

    Most liberals were against the balkan invasion. Further, there is no comparison between our scope of effort in those two countries. We didn't take over the governance; we didn't allow campaign contributors to profiteer on the backs of Iraquis and American taxpayers (like Bechtel and Haliburton are doing). The number of casualties is far less. And further at the time of the attacks Milo was systematically exterminating an entire culture of people.

    But that's okay- we all know that if the media told the truth, the police-state/theocracy agenda of the far right wing would have a 2/3 majority in this country. The question is, why do they bother fighting Hussein? So many on the far right agree with his policies 100%

    Today's "Doonebury" purports to honor Memorial Day by naming the Iraqi War dead. Forget that Memorial Day is to honor the dead of WWI, WWII, Korea, VietNam and all others. To mention those would not further his liberal agenda, which is to stick it to Bush at every opportunity.

    One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line." - President Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998

    "If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq's weapons of mass destruction program." - President Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998

    Iraq is a long way from [here], but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face." - Madeline Albright, Feb 18, 1998

    "He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten time since 1983." - Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb 18,1998

    "[W]e urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the US Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq's refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs." - Letter to President Clinton, signed by Sens. Carl Levin (D-MI), Tom Daschle (D-SD), John Kerry (D - MA), and others Oct. 9,1998

    "Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process." - Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998

    "Hussein has chosen to spend his money on building weapons of mass destruction and palaces for his cronies." > - Madeline Albright, Clinton Secretary of State, Nov. 10, 1999

    "There is no doubt that ... Saddam Hussein has invigorated his weapons programs. Reports indicate that biological, chemical and nuclear programs continue apace and may be back to pre-Gulf War status. In addition, Saddam continues to redefine delivery systems and is doubtless using the cover of a licit missile program to develop longer-range missiles that will threaten the United States and our allies." - Letter to President Bush, Signed by Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL,) and others, December 5, 2001

    "We begin with the common belief that Saddam Hussein is a tyrant and threat to the peace and stability of the region. He has ignored the mandated of the United Nations and is building weapons of mass destruction and the means of delivering them." - Sen. Carl Levin (D, MI), Sept. 19, 2002

    "We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country." - Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002

    "Iraq's search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power" - Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002

    "We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seeking and developing weapons of mass destruction." - Sen. Ted Kennedy (D, MA), Sept. 27, 2002

    "The last UN weapons inspectors left Iraq in October of 1998. We are confident that Saddam Hussein retains some stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons, and that he has since embarked on a crash course to build up his chemical and biological warfare capabilities. Intelligence reports indicate that he is seeking nuclear weapons..." - Sen. Robert Byrd (D, WV), Oct. 3, 2002

    "I will be voting to give the President of the United States the authority to use force-- if necessary-- to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security." - Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Oct. 9,2002

    "There is unmistakable evidence that Saddam Hussein is working aggressively to develop nuclear weapons and will likely have nuclear weapons within the next five years .. We also should remember we have always underestimated the progress Saddam has made in development of weapons of mass destruction."- Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D, WV), Oct 10, 2002

    "He has systematically violated, over the course of the past 11 years, every significant UN resolution that has demanded that he disarm and destroy his chemical and biological weapons, and any nuclear capacity. This he has refused to do" - Rep. Henry Waxman (D, CA), Oct. 10, 2002

    "In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including Al Qaeda members.. It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons." - Sen. Hillary Clinton (D, NY), Oct 10, 2002

    "We are in possession of what I think to be compelling evidence that Saddam Hussein has, and has had for a number of years, a developing capacity for the production and storage of weapons of mass destruction." - Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL), Dec. 8, 2002

    "Without question, we need to disarm Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal, murderous dictator, leading an oppressive regime ... He presents a particularly grievous threat because he is so consistently prone to miscalculation ... And now he is miscalculating America's response to his continued deceit and his consistent grasp for weapons of mass destruction .. So the threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is real" - Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Jan. 23. 2003
