What would happen if what happened to Iraq happened to America?
Imagine a forign country much stronger then America. They destroy it's infastructure. Including water, electricity, government and military to name a few. They fire everyone in the government, police and military. Displace millions of people and kill hundreds of thousands. Enter the country and try to rebuild the utilities themselves but mainly just give lots of money to companies that pay thier politicians. Occupy with a military that doesn't speak English and considers everyone a potential threat to them. Please just try to consider this question without telling me why it was right to do what we did. I don't argue that something had to be done but consider what we did as if it happened to you. Also the fact that we are free and they aren't isn't the important one when you consider that the society was functioning in the mannors discribed but now isn't. So what would life be like in America for you and your family?

so lets look at your logic here... you say that leaving a murderous dictator in power is the right thing to do because if it happened to america we wouldnt like it? This is beyond absurd. there has to be world oversight of governments. Whether you like it or not. Somebody that has a stability and a willingness to... More
