Yes, I'm sure we overthrew the Iraqi government.
Pardon sir, but I fail to see the American victory in your statement. I'm sure I must have been living under a rock because I completely missed the parade where all the soldiers came back home to the arms of their loved ones as the international community applauded the U.S. for its bravery in ridding the world of evil and tyranny that was sure to bring the downfall to modern civilization.
You are not offering a proper rebuttal to my argument. As a matter of fact, you make it stronger because many analysts now agree that the U.S.' overthrowing of the Iraqi government looks more and more like a step-back than a, as you call it, "victory".
Yes, you've seen people hand-picked for their hatred of us and interviewed by the media.
Please, do cite some credible sources to prove and validate this argument.
which is why we must do everything possible to ensure the wrong people never, ever get a chance to get nukes.
How about this: we must do everything possible to ensure that these "wrong people" are educated to the destructive potential of a nuke and how easy it is for that to back-fire (via fallout) on their country and loved ones, while indoctrinating them to the beautiful potential that our species has for creating a future very much comparable to what is promised in their religious texts, and assure them that said scenario is easily attainable when we all contribute and do our part in (and I hate to sound like some pseudo-hippie, but I must) "taking that step up to enlightenment" in embracing ourselves and our world.
Look throughout history, arms races and a build-up of the war machine leads only to catastrophe. However, the good thing is that we are pretty much the first generation who has the power and ability to look back and say "well the last time someone took the flock down that road only a few came back, and they were severely crippled. We shouldn't go there."
If it weren't for the war, I'm sure we'd find something else, like our health care system, to blame it on. I'm not confident other presidents would spend less than Bush: They'd just spend it on something else.
I really do not understand what you are trying to convey here. Please elaborate.
Cool, nice new hospital! Say, who is that guy with a backpack? Is that a wire? *screen turns white, movie ends*

Additionally, according to all you have been writing, I would guess that your way of preventing this is by assaulting and overtaking any country who hints they can do this to us, correct? If that is so, it makes no sense to me. I can't help but to compare it to throwing rocks at pesky buzzing beehives in hopes that they stop buzzing. A couple of bees might find you and try to sting you to get you to stop, but since you can easily deal with a couple of bees, you'd just flick them away and continue blissfully throwing rocks. However, eventually and inevitably, you will find yourself with the whole hive coming after you -God help you then.
