I disagree. They ARE most certainly needed in Iraq, to "bring democracy to the folks"....even if 'the folks' THINK they don't want it.

You do not think it will go right back to what it was before we went there?
Maybe they don't want a democracy there, that has always been a problem of ours, thinking we know what is best for every other country when we cannot even take care of our own problems.

Solves the problem as well. Turns all those Mexicans into Americans. Then they can live wherever they chose. And we have lots of cheap labor.
Why would they be "useless"? One of the things needed is personnel, the other thing needed is arms. An invasion should be repelled by military means.

So the holocaust was, "not our problem" according to you. The killing of millions of innocent people wasn't "our problem". Your sick.

Rwanda should have been our problem if we are such a civilized society, instead we abandoned the country and allowed genocide to take place, shame on us.

It isn't. People need to learn to be responsible for THEMselves. Relying on others only gets you disappointment.

It was their responsibility to fight back. Those who did--even those who died doing so--were honorable.

Would you rather die on your feet or live on your knees?
