    It's been two years, perhaps for our present college friends, who may have been in high school when all these events were taking place, a recap is in order.

    I'm still sorry Steven den Beste chose to stop writing his essays, but they are the best primer around to explain things. First read this, (if you are a voracious reader, you've come to the right place). Before you jump on my excerpts, show a conservative how liberals really do open their minds to other points of view, then dismantle them logically. :thup:

    Intro and there will be lots of links:
    after finishing with that, check this out, where again you can spend a long afternoon on links alone:

    Here's a section I think interesting, but you may find your own:

    Yeah that makes a lot of sense. America spends $300 billion to obtain (even if we got it all, which we do not) $20 billion in annual Iraqi oil exports. The oil argument is absurd. America rid the world of a mass murderer. G84 objects to that.
