Things would be much better today if Iraq had not invaded a helpless, defenseless Kuwait and started all this.

1:42 - You are so right - up to a point. Goofy Saddam should never have invaded Kuwait - only to have a true international coalition army absolutely devastate his military. He paid a heavy penalty even tho George Bush I failed to actually finish the job by removing him.

But the truly stupid act was for George Jr. to go charging into a mess he couldn't understand or handle. We all are paying a terrific cost for that idiotic maneuver. We will be stuck with the aftermath of that horrendous decision for decades.

The ONLY way the United States was able to get a single Middle Eastern nation to participate in the liberation of Kuwait was to agree to ONLY remove Iraqi troops from Kuwait and NOT pursue the Iraqi army BEYOND the Kuwaiti boarder and INTO Iraq.

Pres. Bush the elder did EXACTLY what he agreed to do and was enabled to do.

You cannot fault Pres. Bush the elder for doing what it took to obtain a LARGE multinational coalition when you hiss and spit about "W" NOT doing enough to obtain a large enough multinational coalition.

I think it means we have $00 in our IRA's, 11:00 PM. You can take that figuratively or literally.

Re: 11:00 pm.

Two ways it can be read:

1. Iraq has become Irate. In other words they are trying to irritate the world. IR + Eight = Irate.

2. Infinity can be identified by a symbol. The symbol is an eight (8) turned sideways. Iraq is going to be around forever. Therefore, we can't ignore them.

mschief - Please again check your history. The original invasion of Iraq proceeded far beyond the Kuwait boarders - and very rapidly. It was a political - not military decision that the first pres Bush made. He liked the symmetry of 100 hours so had the military stop their advance. It was never their intention to occupy Baghdad but the removal of Saddam might certainly have changed the subsequent history. A fact does remain: we have created a mess in Iraq that we will be dealing with in one way or another for decades – if not infinity.
