    You know thats an excellent point. Every man who served there I ever spoke to expressed the conviction that it had been worth it.

    yeah, they all said that more than 4000 dead American service members, more than 30,000 wounded American service members as well as more than a trillion dollars was a fair trade so the Iraqis could have an extra day off work...

    lying fucking bastard .

    There were child sized torture chambers in Iraq. It was to protect Hussein from suicide bombers.

    The freedom part was propaganda. Arabs arent built for freedom though that doesn't necessarily mean they need to be needlessly repressed like the Iraqis were. The problem was S Hussein (not to be confused with B Hussein) paid a bounty of 2000 dollars to the families of PLO suicide bombers. He invaded neighbors who were our allies, or at least allowed bases, and he openly threatened to block the Strait of Hormuz. He claimed to have WMDs and swore that he would use them. He desperately sought to become a nuclear power.
    And he offered to take Euros for petroleum...THE unforgivable crime.

    Dufus, every soldier volunteered knowing they’d end up going there.

    You hate the fact tyranny got its ass kicked.
