    ....about Iraq on March 19, 2003, I would, and did, say it's a bluff.

    Bush/cheney and co. would've done Pakistan too if they thought they, and their wealthy pals, could gain anything from it.

      a weak country that never had the ability to defend itself.  Bush would not have gone into a country with nuclear weapons.  We are never going to invade a country with nuclear weapons.  Not going to happen because that means destruction on a level that is unacceptable to the folks in charge.

        Rule #7...If you supported the Iraq war, you don't get to complain about the national debt.
