Iraq in the view of military operations is like D-Day, in that Iraq is our foothold in the war on Terrorism. America has strategically placed its troops right where they need to be. With boots on the ground in the Middle East, America does not need to request permission to retaliate against a group of terrorist that attack our country in the future, as it had to do with Turkey before the Iraq war. Not to mention America took on the most powerful (military) in the Middle East and won, what does that tell the terrorist, maybe it says to them you got no place to hide, we can come and get you anywhere.


Wow, what a goldmine.

First off, how is Iraq a foothold for the US in the War on Terror when you're OUT in 2005, and the second you're out, Iraqis are free to do as they please (which they are supposed to be now, but of course they're still occupied in everything but name)? 130,000 troops is a good enough foothold in the entire Middle East? Wow, buy a calculator.


America does not need to request permission to retaliate against a group of terrorist that attack our country in the future, as it had to do with Turkey before the Iraq war.


You mean when the US asked for permission from Turkey to allow American troops to move through Turkish airspace on bombing runs into Iraq, which were unsanctioned by the UN? There was MASSIVE support in Turkey for the Turkish government's stance against allowing the Americans to use Turkey as a base of operations. As in, massive public support.

As in, the government of Turkey ceded to the wishes of the majority of its people. Look it up, it's called democracy.

And what do you mean that the US wouldn't have to ask other countries for permission to use their land? What do you mean?

Reading things like this makes me think I'm wasting my time at comedycentral.com. AYOYE! Are you telling me IRAQ HAD THE MOST POWERFUL MILITARY IN THE MIDDLE EAST?

Please oh please explain how Iraq, after 11 years of sanctions and embargos, manages to field the most powerful military in the Middle East. I won't even count Israel (which has the 5th most powerful military in the world). I'll give you Israel as a freebie.

Here's a cool fact for you. Iraq had no Air Force. I'm not saying they had a weak, ragtag bunch of planes in their Air Force. I'm saying they had NO AIR FORCE. No way to shoot down bombers or fighter jets at all, except with handheld anti-aircraft weapons. Guys on tops of roofs with Stingers trying to take down jets at Mach1.

So tell me how Iraq had anything but a 3rd World Army. No, no, back up your statement as to how it had the most powerful war machine in all of the Middle East. Provide some good links, too, that'd be cool.


As to your assertion that Iraq had something to do with 9-11, why don't you believe the non-partisan 9-11 Commission, which, after months of study and interviews, found that there was no evidence of an Al Qaeda/Iraq link

www.washingtonpost.com...


Although Osama bin Laden briefly explored the idea of forging ties with Iraq in the mid-1990s, the terrorist leader was hostile to Hussein's secular government, and Iraq never responded to requests for help in providing training camps or weapons, the panel found in the first of two reports issued today.



Star And Crescent:

There are verified accounts of many meetings between Osama and his cronies and upper level members of Saddam's Regime. There are audio tapes, transcripts, and eye witness accounts. There was absolutely a connection between the two.


Read the above article. Funny how a multi-million dollar government commission didn't get to see these "verified accounts of many meetings", yet you did apparently.

Well I'd love to see them and send them to the Commission if it proves that they're wrong. So let's see em.


You can shout cries of we are there because of oil and what-not but my thoughts on that is if we are going to help you out by getting rid of your evil dictator, pump money into helping to rebuild your economy, and sacrifice the lives of our young men and women on the alter of freedom to make it happen, then hell yeah you better be offering something in return. Its just sad that oil is all these people have to repay their debt


Let's say that last sentence again, aloud.

Its just sad that oil is all these people have to repay their debt
Its just sad that oil is all these people have to repay their debt
Its just sad that oil is all these people have to repay their debt


You're really something. I'm not even going to respond to that, since it'll get me banned, but I wanted to make sure every else got to re-read your gem.
