.....I fully support the US going after bin Laden and the terrorists who attacked the US, by all means, pound the pi$$ out of them, they deserve it. As for States sponsoring terrorism, I'm yet to see concrete proof Iraq funded the 9/11 attacks...as stated many times, 9/11 and Iraq are not the same thing...as much as many Americans wish to use 9/11 as an excuse for the War Against Iraq. As stated previously, I'm sympathetic with the fact the US was attacked, and yes, it's right for the US to fight back...but the US was attacked by OBL's al Qaeda, and chose to attack (militarily speaking) a weak, defenseless, easily-defeated Iraqi militia. President Bush knew the US Army would carve through Iraq's ragtag, untrained and unwilling to fight soldiers...Iraq was nothing more than a great PR opportunity for President Bush, "demonstrates decisiveness (though misdirected) and an easy vicoty would all but assure an easy Presidential victory in 2004". Problem is, Iraq has become more complicated, and presently, President Bush and Kerry are pretty close, last I looked, Kerry was ahead in the polls.
.....As for Little Charly paying Little Johnny...that would obviously show Little Charly was incapable of fighting his own battles, and Little Johnne should still be the first concern.
.....With regards to Octopus, I'm not worried about his stalking my kids at the local rink, and his lack of class is to be expected...that's the kind of person he is...I just don't think he needs your help...D'
