I'm not opposed to business, I'm opposed to killing for the sake of it.
Do you believe that? Is there any reason for them to? Even before France declared their veto, the US declared that a second resolution is not essential for a war. I don't think the France would risk the certainty of their loss for an uncertain gain.You are discounting the possibility that the anti-war nations might have been successful.
war was not certainty before the US gave up on the UN, but the reasons France opposed the ware are not certainties either. hopefully that gets though to you, and i hope you don't really want to argue it either.Originally posted by Njorl
If I could figure out what this means I might argue with it.

Have you given up making rational arguements, Kyleb?
well i think you know damn well that it is not always our intent to grab oil, so i am not going to waist my time explaining such things.Originally posted by russ_watters
If there is something wrong with my reasoning, please do point out the flaw.
i was not speaking in a sexual sense directly but rather that making up a bad argument and then trying to pin it on someone else it reminds me of something children do; like when they zone in on their toys and get lost in their own little world, so grow up yourself.Originally posted by russ_watters
I know we're the same age, Kyleb, but "...play with yourself..."? We're not in junior high anymore. Grow up.

I would go for about three weeks. In the previous three weeks, things have gone well for the 'Coalition', now they have their hardest part.
In three weeks time I will look back to see how wrong I was.
or rather part of the intent, sometimes.Originally posted by russ_watters

OMG, can you get any more weasely (there is a better word, but I can't think of it right now)? It wasn't even your comment, you shouldn't feel the need to weasel out of it. Let it go.Originally posted by kyleb

Zargawee, it didn't take very long for Baghdad to collapse, did it? The war was an easy one and Saddam's army was pretty feeble. And Saddam does not seem to be loved by the people there.
