Cheney/halliburton,after the first gulf war, violated U.S. sanctions against Iraq, by conducting business there.I don't see any difference between bush,cheney, and that barbarian in n.korea. They are all guilty of murder.
lts-I know you don't believe that "w" and "so what" cheney intended the meaning of "weapons of mass destruction" to be interpreted to mean jet fighters,military grade rifles, and even scud missiles.Does the phrase " mushroom cloud", and terms such as "yellow cake", and "tubes"(associated with uranium production) imply anything other than their definitions? What you are saying is that they didn't lie, correct?
opportunity to prevent iran from having a nuclear weapon may be passing us by.
asknot...believe it or not...i thought someone would chime in that those weapons of mass destruction was reason enought o go to war. if you notice, i was just responding to moderations question of what i meant by "weapons of mass destruction" plural. the now infamous flawed intelligence information regarding his chemical and boilogical arsenal along with his intent to achieve fissionable material in which to construct a nulear weapon was the reason for the invasion. the real intent for the war quite frankly was hidden in the background as we did not see a direct financial or oil driven payback. we basically rebuit their infrastructure and finacially propped up their economy. in the long run it may have proven to be a huge mistake, but who knows what would have transpired if Saddam would have been allowed to stay in power. while the Palestinian-Isreali talks take center stage, i think we have stumbled a bit with Iran. i am concerned that our, maybe not others, window of oppor
moderation, honestly... i don't know for a fact if some jets are still buried in the sand or not. i would imagine that if they were, they would be of little use without some serious rehab. more than likely after the fall of Iraq, the looting that prevailed and almost assured that the same folks that hid any and everything surely had plenty to gain by their retrieval. from a 2003 AP report: "At least one Cold War-era MiG-25 interceptor was found when searchers saw the tops of its twin tail fins poking up from the sands, said one Pentagon official familiar with the hunt. He said search teams have found several MiG-25s and Su-25 ground attack jets buried at al-Taqqadum air field west of Baghdad."
I have a fence high enough they can't fly over, or at least for now, they don't seem to think they can;) Plus the minute the back door opens they run as fast as they can and attack us for treats;) Theres something oddly hilarious about how chickens run;)
Yes, there are sanitary issues that always need to be considered with chickens One caution I should share about letting them experience expanded freedom, is that they may not return to their run on your schedule.
lol, they dang near cleared half my yard. I think I may have to build them a bigger run and leave them in more of the day next year, maybe let them out a few hours a day. Its too messy with dogs and kids tracking mud and chicken poo into the house:(
asknot-good morning. Let me just say,grass will never grow under my feet.(:
Mod, how many chickens do you have? It takes my boy about 5 minutes, but we only have a few;)
I'm hoping they do alright the next few days!
LTS, I have no problem with the first Iraq war, as there was a clear need!
The second, what was the need? Weapons of mass destruction, that you just labeled heavy munitions and fighter jets? Why does that mean we need to spend a trillion dollars and go to war multi thousands people including thousands of our young men and women? If only munitions and fighter jets are required for a need for war, why are we not at war with Syria, Iran, N Korea, etc?
And I just don't know how we couldn't know what happened to the WMDs with our satellite capabilities. Sorry, I just find that war to be a huge scam, perpetuated by lies. I believe Colin Powell admitted as much, IIRC.
lts-are there jets buried somewhere in the deserts of Iraq, yet today, do you think?
5 Myths Propping Up the Obama Presidency How many will crash by November 2014?
By Tom Blumer
moderation...it has been well documented that Saddam not only hid weapons such as fighter jets and munitions, but he scuttled weapons into Syria. it has yet to be determined where exactly the bulk of the stockpiles documented by the U.N. weapons inspectors ended up. i think you will agree that heavy munitions and fighter jets constitute weapons of mass destruction do you not? i mean if one lowly individual with an semi-automatic rifle can be considered possessing a weapon of mass destruction then how can you argue against an arsenal of SCUD missles?
Although I have never formally timed the process, I can see that feeding,watering,and releasing the chickens, and then collecting the eggs requires about 25 mins.
sorry for dbl post.
good morning lts- I hope things are well. Would you share a bit more about the "plenty" of weapons of mass destruction in saddam h's possession? Such as what we did or did not find, and where the ones we didn't find where or are?
* stink at nation rebuilding.
taht is not my call. i bet Obama probably wishes it wasn't his either....but he wanted to wear the big boy pants....no inheritance...he asked for, got and has to deal with it...its his job now...do it.
