I was distracted by the internal American debate to the occlusion of the reality of Iraq.
Well, do you think that, before you start talking about invading a country, you might learn something about the country you are proposing to invade? Let's keep in mind that, before pretty much every invasion in history, the jingoists think that the war will be quick and easy. In some cases, like the American Civil War, both sides feel that way!
American foreign policy discussions are really conducted on a frighteningly childish level.
