47. Win what?
Edited on Mon Oct-04-04 02:28 PM by Dangerman
We invaded a defenseless country because of Bush's stupid excuse that its' former leader "tried to kill his daddy" and those damn non-existent WMDs and the link to Al-Qaeda. And then we placed an occupational government controlling the people's lives. To the Iraqi people, we're no better than Saddam. Us winning this "war"? Yeah, right!
