Comments: The Interview X2

For Daisy,

"Less than a year-and-a-half after 9/11, we were still being run in circles by Saddam Hussein. Why wouldn't he allow weapons inspectors to do their jobs?"

"still" run in circles?

Why is this significant? Why the linkage of Saddam and 11Sep?

and, according to two different sets of weapons inspectors, Saddam was indeed allowing them access, as much as a sovereign ruler can. It was the UN that pulled those inspectors finally when it was obvious to the most casual observer that the moron was going to take us to war, common sense or no.

Thanks for stopping in Skyh-Ho. I am sure DC will be by to give you his answer soon. He stops by quite a bit during these interviews.

Sky-ho,

The mention of Saddam's refusal to allow access in the wake of 9-11 is impt. because of the point I made in my post: We had to evaluate threats differently after 9-11 and not take the chance, given his history of aggression, flaunting of the civilized world, connections to militant Islamic terror, usage of chemical weapons previously, and his statements vis-a-vis the U.S. There is also the point of the Iraq conflict arising within the larger war on Militant Islam, as I discussed above.

Every time the inspectors were there, they got the "guided" tour. I guess you trust Saddam. Uh, I don't think I do. Maybe you trust Saddam more than GWB. Do you?

What do you make of what happened before GWB was president? Was all of that made up, too? Was Clinton wrong? Why was regime change American policy before GWB? Why did we bomb Iraq in 1998?

I note your empathy for the brutal tyrant Saddam ... he allowed access "as much as a sovereign ruler can" ... as juxtaposed to your antipathy for our elected president ... the "moron".

History didn't start when GWB was inaugurated. You need to get over Pres. Bush. He can only serve two terms. But by the time he stops making a fool of the Left about how the Iraq War is going to turn out, though, he will end up being some one who could get elected to a third term. Watch.

I know this pains you, but the bottom line for most of you anti-war types is simple: You don't like GWB. You give yourself away by the way you framed your question.

Okay, I decided to take mine to the extreme and bring up, point for point the Iraqi War Resolution. Each paragraph has been translated to fit my opinions. I'd been wanting to do it for sometime and hope it fits the format close enough.

Iraq war Resolution:

My pontification:

I still stick by my beliefs that this was not entirely about WMD, but several other factors as well. Yes, freeing the Iraqi people is actually in the resolution. If you don't believe me you can check it out for yourself. It was never an afterthought.

Sky-ho

Noted your hatred for the President and anyone who agrees with him and his policy of defending the United States.

But that asid, You disagree with the war and how it was started, but that can't be changed now, can it ?

So does this mean, NOW you are going to support your country, the country you live in, and support our country in a time of war and hope to God we are victorious ?

Or on the other hand are you going to support the enemies of this country just because your dishonorably discharged , traitorous candidate did not win the election.

Daisy,
Can you sue someone for derogatory comments that are left about me on a website. I feel as if I am going to cry.

Travis,
Do you feel as if Bill Clinton is the best president like ever.

Like, ever? Well, like, ohmygawd. No way, Padilla.

I served under four different Presidents. Didn't agree with any of them all the time, but thought that each was worthy of my respect as my commader in chief.

To answer your question, Clinton did good things and stood up under a barrage of wingnut bullshit. But for greatness, I like war time presidents who left America better off for their conduct in office, the ways they faced adversity, and for America's standing with other nations when they left office. Both FDR and Lincoln come to mind.
