Go back and read the US freaking Constitution!!
To ratify an international treaty require the two-third majority votes from the Congress (the Representatives and the Senate, respectively) before it is presented to the President for his signature or veto altogether. Ratify an international treaty takes a very long time due to intensive lobbying, second thoughts or doubts.
Ask the Iraqis, don't ask me

Care to cite a source for your 1 million claim? I know its utter BS. The Foreign Secretary of the UK himself claims it was only 300,000 (which is still probably hyped for propaganda, latest figures put it nearer 100,000). It only reaches 1 million of you include the deaths as a direct result of sanctions.
Throughout the entire reign of Saddam Hussein (30+ years).

If you want to discuss those topics, do a search about Iraq's wmd and post there. Otherwise stop trying to change the subject of a thread...

Dude show us something that even remotely backs up what you are claiming and I'll gladly change my opinion.
Insults do you no favours and just embarrass yourself.
While this has strayed off topic, its not exactly hijacked the thread as there was no other discussion going on in the first place.
You, subz and stumason, are not worth arguing with because you guys are IGNORANT LEFTIST TOOLS who are ignoring historical facts, obvious circumstances and pandering to anti-American bias!
I've argued with thick-headed, short-sighted idiots like you (subz and stumason) in the other forums and I'm not going to argue further with you idiots.
So take your BS and shove up yours.
It is on damn topic!
