[quote=TXduckdog;488871]Well for one....we're not at war with Iraq, Oh really? or Iraqi nationals that are in anyway supported by the Iraqi government. an installed puppet government If Iraqi nationals have joined Al Queda, then absolutely they are just another garden variety terrorist that needs to be helped expeditiously along to his virgins. What was the Al Queda presence in Iraq previous to our presense, do tell?
Secondly, Your judgements about an occupying foreign army and false pretexts don't wash here and more importantly over there, just ask the hundreds of thousands Iraqi 'nationals' with ink stained fingers.
OK, lets play 'what if ?' So Texas does indeed decide to secede. The feds do not want that to happen and send in troops to maintain control. The more militant secessionists, members of para-military right -wing militias, not supported by the rebelious Texas government, plant and detonate an IED that kills federal troops. Garden variety terrorists? Or freedom fighters resisting the occupation?
Thirdly, a terrorist with a perception of 'national security'? Puh-leeze. I didn't say terrorist, I said Iraqi national. You changed my words to suit you own view.[/quote]
But thank you, you answered my question. You do not see the contradiction....
