"You said that you know one thing and that is you are wrong and then you accuse me of being wrong. If you know that you are wrong then your judgment that I am wrong must be wrong. Unless you are now arguing that you are right.
Which is it?"
I said nothing of right and wrong, that concept is completely subjective. I speak only of your ability to know "facts" as such, in a manner no different than I must when referring to "facts" presented by any media consumer, which is all of us.
"They never said he wasn't a threat - they said he wasn't an immediate threat - the threat wasn't what Saddam could do but what he was willing to do or what he was willing to help others do" http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/july2004/100704nothreat.htm
God told me to strike at al Qaida and I struck them, and then he instructed me to strike at Saddam, which I did, and now I am determined to solve the problem in the Middle East. If you help me I will act, and if not, the elections will come and I will have to focus on them.

"Do you understand the responsibilities that the sole superpower has? Do you understand the consequences of being viewed as weak and a push-over? Do you understand that by not acting you create the potential for war or more 9/11s? No of course you don't!"
Starting wars is our responsibility?
Do you understand the consequence of being an invading empire? As being a world super power who can be bullied into war? Do you understand that by invading countries you increase chances of 9/11 attacks by terrorizing and infuriating people and constantly killing women and children, and showing them that no one is safe if they don't agree to what we say?
Do you understand that even if it was just a coincidence that oil is so prevelant in the region, that Bushes are oil tycoons, America is greedy for oil, that oil contractors recieve far better pay and even military protection, that American companies are getting no bid contracts, that PENAC made up of some Bush admin had specific and layed out plans for invading and setting up military bases around the region specifically in Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, even if all this and of course much more was sheer coincidence, the rest of the world especially countries we are invading might not agree that it is just coincidence.
"Iran is now surrounded - puts us in a pretty good strategic position."
No shit, what a freakin coincidence right?
