    No, not "Christian evangelicals." No, not "greedy oil companies." No, not a vengeful Bush.

    Jews.

    Funny, I haven't seen this angle covered much in the national media. I'm going to call Art Goldberg at my local paper and ask why!

    I imagine there was quite the odd coalition of elites and not so elites who were in favor of invading Iraq. All you have to do is take a look at who benefitted from it. Personally I could support it as part of a larger effort to marginalize Iran. I imagine others have different reasons for supporting it as you suggested.

    That article never suggested we went into Iraq because of Israel. It only states that Colin Powell referred to Rumsfeld and Cheney as the JINSA gang. Somebody saw a straw and ran with it.

    Yeah... but WJ is a neo-nazi, so it's gotta be all about the jews, or blacks, or latinos... you know, anyone who's not Aryan. :cuckoo:

    I think WJ was just suggesting, that the Jewish angle hadn't been looked at in any depth.

    But, what the hell do I know, just an old "red neck" from Arkansas.:razz:

    How do the majority of Jews feel about the Iraq invasion anyway? Anybody seen any stats or polls?

    Nope.

    But I'd venture, that their playing this "close to the vest", which is the wise mans play, and I don't think you could call the Jew's stupid.

    I'd also say, their loving it, the 400 lb gorilla has come to their aid againts all the neighborhood bullies.

    That's my take anyway.:cool:

    I guess it could go the other way too----stirring up a hornets nest that they live closer to.
