Re: “MAD AS HELL: Palin -- It Rhymes With 'Rich'

I do enjoy reading articles by folks with a completely opposite opinion from mine. This one was very interesting quickly getting to several points and moving on. A bit angry, but it's your choice how you conduct yourself. The thing I'd really like to point out is those several points you hit were mostly assumptions. Your gut tells you that Saddam Hussein, one of history's most anti-American leaders, had nothing to do with 9/11. My gut tells me he did. You found some law book that says when our leadership (not Bush alone) decides to invade a country along with 2 ally countries it somehow is an "illegal" war. I don't see that, in fact WMDs or not, they violated the terms of their surrender on a daily basis. I'm very grateful someone put an end to that evil empire. In fact you sound somewhat like Hussein himself who claimed the terms of his surrender [read: no-fly zones, regular inspections...] were illegal. Of course you aren't him. Just pointing out a similarity. Living abroad I have met several Iraqi citizens, so far every one has made me proud of our contribution to their future. They are full of hope that their Country has entered better days. That is quite the opposite of news networks that spend all of their resources digging up a handful of murders, done less than a handful of criminals, within a 10 square kilometer area of a gigantic Country, and then plastering it across the front pages of papers and web sites on any given day. If they used the same strategy in the U.S. the streets of Washington D.C. alone would be enough to convince the world that our Country is full of murder and crime.
