neversubmit: and everybody lived happily ever afterBombs kill 50 on Iraq invasion anniversary(Reuters) - A dozen car bombs and suicide blasts tore into Shi'ite districts in Baghdad and south of the Iraqi capital on Tuesday, killing more than 50 people on the 10th anniversary of the U.S.-led invasion that ousted Saddam Hussein.
Dinki: It certainly was a low point in the maturity level of the US congress.
dukeblue219: I still can't believe "Freedom Fries" actually happened in the United States Congress.
DamnYankees: Once again - congratulations for thinking that in 2003. You were right and I was wrong. I readily admit it.Now, how is this helpful in figuring out how to prevent this in the future?
Fat-D: This has nothing to do with hindsight. WE KNEW AT THE TIME THEY WERE LYING. Those of us who were paying attention. Those of you who weren't should be ashamed of yourselves.
Tatterdemalian: thecpt: From those posting the 2003 thread, I found this comment which speaks volumes (i didn't want to use the Farker's name):All I have to say is after 9/11 Bush stated that after Afghanistan, that was not the end. We were fighting a war against terrorism and anyone that sponsored, funded, or participated in that would be handled. He also stated that this would be a long task and that even though most of the nation is for that now, the support would start to taper off. Also why is it that all I see on the news is Anti-war protests? We had a pro-america rally attended by 25,000 people here in Atlanta and a anti-war rally attended by 450 people. The only thing CNN showed was the anti-rally. So you tell me how we can depend on info from the media when they only show one side. There are as many pro-america rallies as anti yet you see none of those on tv...The media is all about what will make controversial news and nothing about fact. 71% of the nation support the war effort yet all you see on tv is the opposite. I don't like war and would love to avoid it. But does anyone else see the comparisons of Saddam and Hitler? Germany opposed military action against Hitler and look what he did to that country? But if Bush didn't call for this war and another 9/11 scenario happened they'd blame him for that too. He'll never win either way./NOT SAYING THAT POST PROVED ANYTHING. I just found it to be extremely interesting and informative.What you see in this thread is the political victors indulging in a Squealer-style rewriting of history, pretending their politically motivated naysaying was propelled by knowledge Hussein himself didn't have at the time./someday PsiChick will be proudly declaring that 9/11 was carried out in response to Dubya's invasion of Iraq//hopefully there will still be someone left who values little details like "chronological order"
