Gentlemen, before many of your heads explode in rage that your national pride is under attack.
red those facts before jumping up and down.
This nation was founded on Revolutionary ideas. And all revolutionary means, is a flow of thoughts, actions, or ideas that differ from the mainstream. So when someone speaks a course of different words and you begin to (as Eminence put it well) "explode in rage", you've only proven you have no idea what foundations your standing on. Because your actions have just went against that so called pride.
Lack of Economic Gain.
Invading either nation, would result in the horrific loss of life, and Casualties both militarily and Civilian, would be in their millions.
And i'm sorry to say Eminence but the loss of human life means nothing to the likes of people who are pulling the strings. Take every war you can remember,(most people will only say well-known ones like Vietnam, ww1,ww2 ,desert storm, gulf, and Iraq.) There are hundreds that are suppose to be common knowledge that you don't know to much about because it wasn't media worthy. Loss of life meant nothing in any of those battles. Almost Everyone focuses on the thoughts "Its them or us", or "we've gotta do this so our families will be safe".
Well stop and think what the opponent is thinking. They fight mostly for the same reasons we do. So why is ours justified, and theirs is not. I guess that's the American Mindset then. "No one can have nukes! Well unless we say so..." , "If your not with us, your against us", and "speaking against the government is dissent". -that last one was Bush.
Before replying,Read the constitution, and its amendments and then come back and read that again.
Read it? Now tell me what you think.
you do understand that if America have nukes they dont threatens to use them or..!. well if iraq will have nukes ... I dont even what to think of that.
