Arkanaut: And Bush Sr. went in with a much bigger army than Bush Jr. did -- a quick check of Wikipedia shows that the 1991 coalition was nearly 1 million soldiers, while the 2003 invasion was done with 300K soldiers, only about half of whom stayed for the occupation.
whidbey: Ego edo infantia cattus: We won?[www.linkognito.com image 500x630]Well shiat, load the next one already.Dude this is not a rate your gf thread. GTFO.
Popcorn Johnny: GWB is a hero, get over it.

Sgt Otter: We seized all of Saddam's massive stockpiles of nuclear weapons, caught Osama bin Laden hiding in Baghdad spooning with Saddam, U.S. troops were out in six weeks, and the war paid for itself. Just like Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, and Wolfowitz promised.SUCK IT, LIBS.

Wyalt Derp: If by "we" you mean "Halliburton etc" then yes, I guess 'we' did.
lennavan: SkeletorUpInHere: As a somewhat right leaning person, I don't understand why anyone says we won/lost.THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS WINNING IN GUERRILLA WARFAREOnce we got there, there was no going back. You carry it out, whether it takes 2 weeks or 20 years. Politics are out the window. You can't pull out because you'll look weak as a nation. Take it on the chin. Tough learned lesson.I cannot possibly imagine any person with even just a passing familiarity with US history thinks we actually learned any lessons here whatsoever.
Dude O Matic 5000: The world is a better place without Saddam, or his sons, in power.
Red Shirt Blues: ApeShaft: Yeah, and you also totally won in Vietnam![i.imgur.com image 600x387][bestuff.com image 210x118]It was a tie
