Thunderpipes: Hitler didn't attack us either. Maybe we should have not gotten involved.

Liberals, imagine them in charge during WWII? Fark would be rallying behind Hitler, after all, he didn't like Jews either.


And the income tax rate was over 90% for the highest earners. And the government took over industry. And FDR was president. A real win for conservative ideals that one was.

Aye, good thing we had that very conservative icon of the right, Franklin D. Roosevelt as a President during that time in our history. Dodged a bullet there, we did.

Terrydatroll: Sure, mistakes were made and we should learn from them, but that doesn't mean that we cannot reflect upon the positives as well.


Yes, I'm happy we didn't kill everyone and that some of our troops made it out physically and emotionally intact.

Terrydatroll: If it was a mistake then it was a mistake by all of America. No one that I personally know was against it when it started and it was all but lauded by the entire country, even hard core democrats in Washington. Now after 10 years...sure..hindsight says we could have done more good by spending that money and effort in Afghanistan, but at the time it seemed the right thing to do. Second guessing it now is nothing more than self destruction. The problem with Iraq was that once it was started then it had to be finished regardless of the right/wrong of the war. Some wars a re justifiable, some are not, but they can all be classified as mistakes if examined closely enough.


Sure, other than the dozens and dozens of anti-war protests for the several months between September and March in the run up to the invasion.

You personally knew some goddamn idiots.

I'm far to outraged over Ohitler wanting to give healthcare to everyone to worry about a little war that got 4,400+ americans killed with a 6 trillion dollar price tag.

Its like there's space for some kinda conclusion regarding who is capable of 20/20 hindsight and who isn't.

So you think invading Iraq was a good idea? I've heard that people like you existed, I just never caught a glimpse of one in the wild,

Shouldn't that be 53% of "Americans", because they sound like socialists to me.

EvilEgg: I fail to see how anyone cannot regard this adventure as a mistake. We went to find WMDs, we didn't find any. That is a mistake.

The only real question, if there is one, is what kind of mistake was it? Was a intelligence mistake, a diplomatic mistake, or a political mistake.


I've honestly been wondering if the reason we were so certain he had them, was because we sold them to him, and knew they should've been there.
