    Give one example in recent history where people were led to war for reasons other then freedom, liberation etc. I want to know. because from the way I know, all wars were fought with "good intentions" given to the society. it's always to "liberate" someone or to "defend against someones threat"

    I have never heard of any dictator or leader taking his people into war to another country in order to "steal their goods, repossess their women" have you? please share.

    Other way I am absolutely convinced 100%, that all pro war people are anti Christ: just because a black man wears a white suit, does not mean he is a white man

    The German invasion of Poland, Japanese invasion of China, Pearl Harbor, the Russian invasion of Afghanistan, Napoleon's conquest of Europe, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, just about every war in history before 1776.

    MY Goodness! are you less then 21 years old?
    Did your school teach you about 1991 INVASION of Kuwait by Iraq and
    then the resumption of the 1991 War in Iraq in 2003 when during the 12 years from when Saddam SIGNED the 1991 CEASE FIRE he continued to murder his own people, build WMDs and attacked over 1,000 times coalition aircraft?
    Thus resulting in the RESUMPTION in Mar 2003 of the WAR in IRAQ BECAUSE SADDAM
    completely broke his 1991 CEASE FIRE agreement?

    ARE You truly that ignorant of history?

    It might have been easier to ask "what wars HAVE BEEN" for "freedom and liberty". Much shorter list...

    I understand history and I recognize bullshit.

    Bush Sr. was right to drive Saddam from Kuwait after other Arab states requested US help.

    But as for the rest. Look at it this way. If you punched someone in the eye, would you walk away and turn your back on them and ignore them? Only if you're an idiot.

    Bush Sr. had been the head of the CIA, an officer in WWII, Vice President and President. To believe that after forcing Saddam back to Iraqi borders and that he would then ignore Saddam is downright stupid. And I'm talking seriously stupid.

    You know he parked at least a half dozen spy satellites permanently stationed over Iraq. The country was under sanctions. Their military had been destroyed. They had no industry. No manufacturing. No resources beyond oil and Iraq is a small country.

    Imagining this guy was a big threat is wildly insane and laughable.
