The fact of the matter is we went to war because of blind patriotism after the 9/11 attacks and some of the most well-staged presidential speeches ever.
I can't help but laugh. Its funny because I agree that politics is dirty and people make deals with corporations but I mean the way you say it and WHEN you say it makes you look like an uneducated hippie.

I have not once called you a stupid liberal.

well-staged presidential speeches ever
I guess Bush must not be so stupid after all

We didn't go to war with Iraq until 2003 thats 2 years time.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature, and has no chance of being free unless made or kept so by the exertions of better men than himself John Stuart Mill
