    As many Americans seem to support the notion of war and export of same around the World just how many Americans would welcome war if it was happening in their own country.

    Having the good fortune nay luxury of not having the bloodshed and destruction of their people and nation would the average America be so pro war if they suffered as so many others have.

    It is my firm belief that this total detachment from the reality of war that leeds Americans into believing its perfectly OK to attack any nation they like be they a threat or not. The average American does not know what war is like even for their own combatents never mind what it must be like to be invaded and occupide by a foreign force.

    I am sure that many would soon loose this lust for mass murder and wholesale looting if they had undergone the same process.

    Are you kidding?


    As for the OP, I think there is some truth to this.

    In the 20th Century, I read somewhere, only one democracy attacked another country without first being attacked. That was the US. I'm still trying to rebut that.

    Since you're obviously chumming the waters hoping to get a bite, go ahead and make your case that the United States didn't attack Iraq.

    We aren't at war with Iraq. We helped Iraqis establish a democratic government, oust a tyrant, and fight against those primarily non-Iraqis who are tearing her apart.

    Is that all?

    All of that is true, however that doesn't make the case that we did not attack Iraq.

    Big difference between what happened in '03 and what is going on now.

    We never attacked Iraq. We attacked Saddam, and we remain to prevent terrorists from assuming his place.

    We train their police, they have asked us repeatedly to stay.
