Russia tests Obama

They attacked Kuwait over a longstanding land dispute, not "no reason". They attecked Israel in order to try and draw them into the Gulf War so the Arab allies to the US would defect - once we began operations in Kuwait.

Israel has been far more non compliant with UN "Rules" than Iraq should we invade them? RULES THAT THREATEN THE SECURITY OF ISRAEL!

Here's the facts. Iraq was not a threat to the US.They did not have ties to Al Queida. They had no active nuclear program. They were not worth thousands of American lives and billions of dollars of our trouble. They were contained with our no fly zones, and would have never became a major power in the region again as long as Hussein was in charge.

Before the war it was certainly proved that the yellowcake sh*t Bush mentioned in his speech leading up to war was a sham. His reliance on this baloney as "proof" should have been enough to make everyone take a closer look at what was really happening.

In this case hindsight was proven the doubters correct, and the "we can't take a chance" crowd terribly terribly wrong. The few holdouts that insists years and years later that somehow Syria is holding onto secret WMDs for an Iraq that does not even exist are just pathetic, but people who continue to defend this action as a level headed decision are only one small notch above them.

It's good to know that you KNOW the world, and ME is a much safer place with Saddam enriching himself and threatening his neighbors with his non-existent power. Yeah, hindsight has been proven to be accurate with regard to the nuclear progam, but you can't set here today and say: YUP, KNEW HE DIDN'T HAVE IT THEN FO SHO! Cause if you did know, you must've been working with or for Saddam's regime.

AGAIN, HOW ARE THE DEMS GOING TO DEAL WITH THE THREAT? History is behind us, bigger threats loom...Explain!!!

I don't know that my neighbor might or might not be creating explosives in his basement to blow up my house, excuse me while I take him out...just to be sure.

OK, I'm back. Do you truly enjoy making up boogeymen? The idea that any threat on the horizon is greater than the one the world faced during the Cold War is a little silly - the biggest worldwide threat these days (at least man made) is some kind of supervirus, and I doubt a bunch of cave dwelling Neanderthals are going to have a lot of success with that anytime soon.

The solution of course is to minimize the threat which requires more than just cowboy boots and bombs. I am sure that Obama will have a great competent staff to assist him, and his goal of adding troops to Afganistan and reducing them from Iraq is the smart move. I realize that your brain is stuck in some kind of Reaganesque fantasy world where only people with red lapel pins can save us, and people with blue lapel pins are in league with Stalin, but the real world is just a wee more complicated than that.

Here's the facts. Germany was not a threat to the US...They were not worth thousands of American lives and billions of dollars of our trouble. They were contained...and would have never became a major power in the region again as long as Hitler was in charge.

Thanks, Neville Chamberlain
