  •  History doesn't repeat itself (none)
    But it sure does provide perspective.  Although I am very happy that the people of Iraq had a chance to say something about the direction of their country, I don't believe that (1) democratic elections justify our invasion of that country, and (2) Bushco hasn't manipulated and will continue to manipulate this process.  This article highlights the fact that our history belies what the administration wants us to believe about this election.

    •  Statistically (none)
      The chances of two of us using the same headline to a post at exactly the same time, drawn from a much earlier comment upthread, must be quite small.

      Did I tell you I got a 42,500 to 1 chance of a hole-in-one on the 188yd eighth hole in October? I am now starting to do the lottery.

      •  Actually, the chances of that happening ... (none)
        ... were exactly 100%, because it happened. </smartass>

    •  Actually, I'm pretty it does (none)
      In fact, I remember having this exact same discussion with someone a few weeks ago.
