They should worry, Bush just nuked a country for no reason, why wouldn't he nuke him?

Uh, no, Afghanistan wasn't "revenge", but the rooting out of the Taliban
Yeah and a fat great of good that did. The Taleban had outlawed poppy farming in Afghanistan and had succesfully eliminated 70% of the worlds heroin flow.
My country is now full of heroin addicts again
the opiate trade monopoly belongs to the company forerly called the East India Company. It has long since changed names, and a few times, but it still owns the monopoly. It is a British company, not a U.S. company.
Im sure we can find more constructive things to concentrate our efforts on rather than erradicating ourselves uneccesarily.
I'm from a time when books were the in thing
Why do people ask for links to information they should know if they have actually read books or paid attention in school?

Because they have a detterent force. And NK wouldn't be nuked for no reason. Its a rouge state that sells destructive weapons to terrorist and terror supporting states abroad. Entirely different from Russia and China.

Their status as Muslim, even radical fundamental Muslim, does not show a connection to 9/11. I am among those who are not convinced that is was done by Muslims.

Marg, had you read one word I have typed and posted on this board, you would know that I have never bought into that "liberation" crap.
That was merely for liberals who can't fathom the need for protecting their own country, not for anyone else.
What are we doing in Iraq now, you ask?
Well, let's start out by noting what we aren't doing in Iraq.
Contrary to the hysterical screams of unstable liberals, we are not stealing oil.
The Halliburton corporate flag is not the flag of Iraq, either.
What is no longer happening? Certain members of U.N., the members who adamantly opposed the war in Iraq, are no longer making big bucks with no whammies at the expense of a tortured and hungry populace.
What did we do?
What are we doing now? We are attempting to assist the Iraqi people set up a government that they control in a democratic manner, a means by which they can not only survive but excel.
They seem to be of tougher hide than I thought as they are standing firm against the "insurgency" attempt to thwart their self-governorship by resolutely standing for elections and sending their sons to be soldiers and policeman to fight against the murderers who are against their democratic nation.
Who are you for?

How does selling weapons to terrorists and other rogue states make North Korea entirely different from China, Russia, and of course the USA? Sounds like we're all competing in the same business to me.
as it seems that the Taliban were never connected to 9/11.
the official religion of the kingdom is Whabbi Islam
