125. How do you know?
Perhaps I misrecall, but in my memory they tried to sell us that Iraq was going to be a quick easy victory. Kick out the evil Saddam, brush the dust off, set the country up right, good deed done and the world will love us.

Saddam had in the past actively bombed the living fuck out of his people. The main difference there appears to me to be timing.

I think there may be different motivations involved this time, and part of me cheered internally when the decision to engage was announced. But as long as I live, I will always be suspicious of the motives of any politician or group of politicians who thinks its necessary to engage another country in war. Some will be as justified as such things can be. But I will question the motives. Each and every time.
