    Iraq Question.....

    I've asked this before..and never really got a good answer...

    What do we (US) do when/if the iraqi people use their newfound voting powers to elect a government that is VERY unfriendly towards the US/Europe and actually supports terrorism groups?

    What do we do then?

    Do we invade them again, even though the Iraqi people CHOSE that government..just something to think about....

    That is not the case at this point and that argument has very little to do with whether or not the cause in iraq was/is a just one. Still, to answer your question, that is a risk of freedom and we will have to deal with it on whatever level is dictated by the behavior of that government and the effect it has on us and our policy.

    ... duh what do you think the CIA is for? They been actively meddling over there for 50 odd years already and before them the British did a good job of putting in place ruling parties that suited their interests. Same as it ever was, same as it ever was .... there has never been democracy in that region becuase the West is scared of such a thing.

    At the very least, we should ask Bush, Cheney and Halliburton for our money back.

    The CIA? Surely you jest. This is what Mossad is for!
