    Can anyone make an argument that invading Iraq was ok but the Russian war against Georgia is wrong? Seeing Bush up there condemning Russia just made my eyes roll :cuckoo:

    Should we probably accept Georgia into the NATO alliance and possibly send troops for 'support'? I would not be against such a thing. Would be be justified? Yes indeed... but the situation is not nearly the same as Iraq (and no, idiot, Iraq was not about oil no matter how much you keep chanting that bogus slogan)...

    Not very difficult.

    We took out a tyrant who routinely threatened his neighbors around him.

    Russia is taking out a Democratic government protecting their own sovereign territory.

    We went into Iraq to provide them with the right to govern themselves.

    Russia is going in so they control Georgia.

    The contrast is actually quite obvious.

    Where's the oil we are taking out of Iraq? Where's it at? You would figure with all the oil we are supposedly stealing from the country of Iraq, that we took over because of their oil, we would have some tiny piece of evidence to support this..


    We'll be waiting....

    Your belief of liberal slogans shows your stupidity

    :lol:

    yeah, we went in hoping saddam would have a big stack of oil barrels, just sitting there, ready for us to take back to the US.

    did you maybe consider the fact that our govt wanted to have a friendly, stable ally in the region with big oil reserves who would also allow us to have bases between iran and the rest of the ME? youre looking at it in a very narrow way
