45. Because..................... that's why.............
When someone snubs their nose at america and does it for almost thirty years someone starts to hold a grudge.....When someone starts to hold a grudge ANYTHING becomes justafiable, like war. Just like when Saddam Hussein tried to kill Bush Sr. and Bush Jr. came to power and killed him, there are people in high places now who still hold grudges from way back then.
