    And where will you left-wing nut jobs self-deport to? Hmmm?

    Frankly, I wish ALL you nut jobs would stop yammering at each other and start listening, learning, and cooperating. Then WE might start fixing things.

    You must have a very narrow and simplistic view of the world to think policy is either liberal or conservative, and merit is judged accordingly.

    If we had trusted the UN weapons inspectors back in 2003, there would have been no need for a war in Iraq. Which do you prefer — war or diplomacy?

    Since you don’t like the president or our country why don’t you leave?

    A brief moment or two on Faux this morning: one interviewee defined the situation in their thinking: WAR is “peacemaking”, and OCCUPATION is “peacekeeping”.

    Then the idiot Faux screensaver "host’, was corrected by another interviewee for making repeated false statements and she responded: “Why do you keep ATTACKING ME?” Which, is exactly where the “right” comes from, any specification of reality, or truth, that counters their argument (which since when is arguing with a guest, presenting “news”?) is an “attack”.

    Hmmm, Swirly, Zit, Offguard, assknownothing, our little “friends” here certainly do get their backs up if their precious fraudulent “Rushisms” are challenged. Ah, yes, “facts” equate to “hate”.

    A lot of us feel the same way about you, she made a comment to ask you to stop your whining nothing hateful to President Obama or the country.

    The only hater here is will you. Every day you come here give maybe a sentence. Contribute or stop posting.

    @MStevenson58: I was replying to a left-winger who was suggesting that all the right-wing nut jobs should self-deport to Somalia. I’m frakking sick and tired of all the left-right BS. The whole system is broken and corrupt and we need to fix it or reboot it.

    Several posters are claiming that the UN inspectors did find evidence in Iraq that supported Bush’s call for war. They are wrong. They probably know that they are wrong. I will post the following just once, because it’s long:
    All of the following is a direct quote from an article by Hans Blix, who was head of the UN team of weapons inspectors.

    The Bush administration certainly wanted to go to war, and it advanced eradication of weapons of mass destruction as the main reason. As Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz has since explained, it was the only rationale that was acceptable to all parts of the U.S. administration.

    The WMDs argument also carried weight with the public and with the U.S. Congress. Indeed, in the autumn of 2002 the threat seemed credible. While I never believed Saddam could have concealed a continued nuclear program, I too thought there could still be some biological and chemical weapons left from Iraq’s war with Iran. If not, why had Iraq stopped U.N. inspections at many places around the country throughout the 1990s?

    However, suspicions are one thing and reality is quite another. U.N. inspectors were asked to search for, report and destroy real weapons. As we found no weapons and no evidence supporting the suspicions, we reported this. But U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfield dismissed our reports with one of his wittier retorts: “The absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.”

    Rumsfeld’s logic was correct, I believe, but it was no excuse for the American and British governments to mislead themselves and the world, as they did, by giving credit to fake evidence or assuming that if weapons items were “unaccounted for” that they must exist. They did not exist.
    We inspected many hundred of sites, including dozens that had been suggested to us by various governments’ national intelligence organizations. In a few cases we found conventional weapons — but no weapons of mass destruction. The governments that launched the war claimed to be 100% convinced that there were such weapons, but they had 0% knowledge of where these weapons were.


    On February 11 — less than five weeks before the invasion — I told U.S. national security adviser Condoleezza Rice I wasn’t terribly impressed by the intelligence we had received from the U.S., and that there had been no weapons of mass destruction at any of the sites we had been recommended by American forces. Her response was that it was Iraq, and not the intelligence, that was on trial.

    Past experIence would suggest that your information will fall on deaf ears when directed at ansonia. I do like your posts content and effort, as usual lonecat.

    ahab is right about ansonia…I never even read his posts because I have found them to be useless. He has made it clear that he is not interested in any way in substantive conversation, so why bother?

    I’m not really expecting a conversation, just posting information for those who care.
