lts-I know you don't believe that "w" and "so what" cheney intended the meaning of "weapons of mass destruction" to be interpreted to mean jet fighters,military grade rifles, and even scud missiles.Does the phrase " mushroom cloud", and terms such as "yellow cake", and "tubes"(associated with uranium production) imply anything other than their definitions? What you are saying is that they didn't lie, correct?
opportunity to prevent iran from having a nuclear weapon may be passing us by.
asknot...believe it or not...i thought someone would chime in that those weapons of mass destruction was reason enought o go to war. if you notice, i was just responding to moderations question of what i meant by "weapons of mass destruction" plural. the now infamous flawed intelligence information regarding his chemical and boilogical arsenal along with his intent to achieve fissionable material in which to construct a nulear weapon was the reason for the invasion. the real intent for the war quite frankly was hidden in the background as we did not see a direct financial or oil driven payback. we basically rebuit their infrastructure and finacially propped up their economy. in the long run it may have proven to be a huge mistake, but who knows what would have transpired if Saddam would have been allowed to stay in power. while the Palestinian-Isreali talks take center stage, i think we have stumbled a bit with Iran. i am concerned that our, maybe not others, window of oppor
moderation, honestly... i don't know for a fact if some jets are still buried in the sand or not. i would imagine that if they were, they would be of little use without some serious rehab. more than likely after the fall of Iraq, the looting that prevailed and almost assured that the same folks that hid any and everything surely had plenty to gain by their retrieval. from a 2003 AP report: "At least one Cold War-era MiG-25 interceptor was found when searchers saw the tops of its twin tail fins poking up from the sands, said one Pentagon official familiar with the hunt. He said search teams have found several MiG-25s and Su-25 ground attack jets buried at al-Taqqadum air field west of Baghdad."
Yes, there are sanitary issues that always need to be considered with chickens One caution I should share about letting them experience expanded freedom, is that they may not return to their run on your schedule.
asknot-good morning. Let me just say,grass will never grow under my feet.(:
lts-are there jets buried somewhere in the deserts of Iraq, yet today, do you think?
moderation...it has been well documented that Saddam not only hid weapons such as fighter jets and munitions, but he scuttled weapons into Syria. it has yet to be determined where exactly the bulk of the stockpiles documented by the U.N. weapons inspectors ended up. i think you will agree that heavy munitions and fighter jets constitute weapons of mass destruction do you not? i mean if one lowly individual with an semi-automatic rifle can be considered possessing a weapon of mass destruction then how can you argue against an arsenal of SCUD missles?
Although I have never formally timed the process, I can see that feeding,watering,and releasing the chickens, and then collecting the eggs requires about 25 mins.
sorry for dbl post.
good morning lts- I hope things are well. Would you share a bit more about the "plenty" of weapons of mass destruction in saddam h's possession? Such as what we did or did not find, and where the ones we didn't find where or are?
* stink at nation rebuilding.
taht is not my call. i bet Obama probably wishes it wasn't his either....but he wanted to wear the big boy pants....no inheritance...he asked for, got and has to deal with it...its his job now...do it.
asknot, perhaps you are right....but i am certain Kuwait appreciated our intervention in the first so-called gulf war. whether people would like to admit it or not...by the liberals left description of weapons of mass destruction...it was painfully obvious that Saddam had plenty. the problem i see with our policies of dealing with unsavories in the world ends at half-measures. i am more of the school of "eradicate not placate". remember that Saddam invaded a sovreign country which threatened the worlds oil supply. as much as americans tie politics and hatred for oil...it as in now is the prime source of fuel for our economy and would be more devastating than a market crash. we see how everyone reacted to that. with the major exception of Japan and Germany...we stick at nation rebuilding at least in the middle-east so far. they as a whole are not receptive to our way of life and most likely never will be. the best we can hope for is containment or elimination. fortunately tha
AP reports..."The city center of Iraq's Fallujah has fallen completely into the hands of fighters from the al-Qaida-linked Islamic State in Iraq and Levant, police said Saturday, yet another victory for the hardline group that has made waves across the region in recent days."
Rand Paul filing class action suit against Obama admin. to stop NSA spying. Anyone in the US that owns a cellphine can join suit !
I am logging off now. I have better stuff to do than debate with small minded people that want people to think the are tolerant of other peoples views when they are NOT.
Thin skin when called a homophobe and a racist.. YEP that'll do it..By the way I have referenced DR BEN CARSON before. He was the one that spoke beside Obama at the luncheon about Obamacare and now everyone is begging him to run in 16.
