“Could it be that we were helping Saddam with the war against Iraq since that benefited us and when Saddam got the idea that he could take over the region and he started by invading Kuwait is when it was decided that Saddam and his government had to go. Just an idea.”

“It was a US representative at the time that gave Hussein the impression the US does not interfere in border disputes. Feeling that the justification to invade Kuwait was a border dispute, he invaded. I am not justifying Hussein and his regime, but remember he was once our ally and we gave him chemical weapons in the first place.
Politics make strange bedfellows.”

“like it or not; like them or not, the Iraqis were the bulwark against Iran who (sound the trumpets) is now our big threat. according to the politicos. when do we learn? we've switched sides in that part of the world (and elsewhere) more often than palin changes her mind.”

“Looks like to me the the Presidet and Senate is not to sure about the law that was signed into law in 2010. If they were sure that it would hold they would be more willing to do business as they have done in the past. Disagree with me ok, this is just the way I see things.”

“So your prof of this comes from wikipedia? A website known for its bias based facts and nonfactual evidence. Many acclaimed Universities, Colleges and High Schools actually do not except sources cited from this website when doing reports or papers due to the fact anyone can make a page about anything they want with nothing to support their claims..... Even after reading half way down that page it became evident that not only was the "writer" of that page a racial atheist, but also a propaganda feeding Democrat Zombie, just as yourself”

“More on. Did you not learn about the political realignment of the national electorate when you were home schooled? The Republican party, before 1964, was the northern, liberal, progressive party. The Democrats, before 1964, were the party of the Confederacy and theKKK (aka Dixiecrats). Then the Civil Rights Act was passed and the Dixiecrats got all upset because LBJ was a Texas Dem and he signed it into law, so they left the party. The Republicans instituted the Southern Strategy to woo these disaffected Dixiecrats and they joined the Republican party. This is how the South became red in the mid'60s when it used to be blue for a 100 years before that. The modern Republicans are not the party of Lincoln. They are the party of Davis.”
“And where did the ability for people to fabricate ideas come from?”

“Let me guess. From an invisible god who lives in a magical heaven? Probably not.
Our ability to fabricate ideas came from 3.5 billion years of evolution in a competitive environment, most recently honed on the African savanna. Those who could survived, those who couldn't perished.”

“It's your hubris - you think because YOU don't understand it, it must be the work of a god. We don't have all the answers to the universe, but the big ones that we attributed to gods, such as the sun rising or the rain falling, we've figured out. You should take that as your first clue.”
“If there are those who say that God does not exist and those who can prove the nonexistence of God therefore there must be a God for those people to have their beliefs.”

“No one can prove that anything doesn't exist.
That having been said, and following your logic, my lack of belief in leprechauns, the Easter bunny, the tooth fairy, Santa Claus and little green men must prove that they in fact exist as well. Who knew?”

Given the hundreds of Christian Churches, plus the thousands of non-Christian creeds, each teaching their own "flavor"of God, one must choose one of three possible realities:
1. God exists, and ALL flavors are true. God just tells different people different things.
2. God exists, but just one flavor is true. God loves you if you happen to have been born in the right time and place.
3. God doesn't exist. Religions are mad-made.”

“That made absolutely no sense whatsoever. Something that people believe in doesnt HAVE to exist for them to have those beliefs. People can in fact fabricate ideas totally on their own.”
“It is surprising what one can learn why things are the way they are. Why the two parties seem to be at each other then a party is formed just to do business. This link to the Wikipedia page may inform some as to why the Republician party was formed.
“Obvious she doesn't know the definition of the word "murder."
Murder is defined as:
"Murder is the unlawful killing, with malice aforethought, of another human, and generally this premeditated state of mind distinguishes murder from other forms of unlawful homicide (such as manslaughter). A person who commits murder is called a murderer. Definition is from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murder
As I saw the reports he did not have much forethought about his actions. Like he didn't wake up in the morning and say to himself "I think I will go murder someone today." Now who am I to believe and which side am I on. I believe that there is a strong effort to inform individuals as to ones on personal beliefs rather than tell folks the truth.”
