No, of the whole thing being run for oil.

And we all know journalists are impartial, right?

No, won by the laws covering election of the President
of the US. The Electoral College is outdated and should
be scrapped, but until it is it determines the winner
of the election.

That's right. But that doesn't have to be the main

Where is all the proof otherwise? Hussein did kick
out the inspectors before, so there has been a lapse.
Once Bush started threatening, the inspectors were
let back in.

I agree, but to say I'm not a very intelligent opponent
shows that still, you know nothing about me. To assume
I'm not intelligent because I don't agree 100% percent
with you shows lack of intelligence on your part.

I agree we should let this go. This all started because
I wanted to point out that Sellam's continual comments
lead to off-topic flames, and from there people have made
quite a few wrong assumptions about me and my beliefs,
just because I have the audacity to question what they
assume is true.
