Not even. Actually detracted from the dialogue. Spoutings of an idiot.

I'll go one step further. The UN passed 17 resolutions condeming Sadam, ordering him to comply with weapons inspectors. and authorizing use of force. Congress supported him in the 2003 prelude to armed conflict and voted every year since providing approval through continued financial support of the war effort. Mr. 1954 's argument is intellectually dishonest. Further, he disregards the current WH authoritarian regime's bombing campaign of Libya without congressional approval. He is a shill for the Obamanation.

Agreed. Amazing, individuals like "1954" would compare GWB to Nazi war criminals for simply pouring water down someone's throat. And I hope they don't give the false left narrative or incesant non-sense that we fought wars that we should never have been in. Nonsense. I wonder if "1954" called for Sadam Hussein's head when 3 quarters of a million Kurds lay dead under a cloud of Chemical Weapons. Probably not, because "1954" wouldn't know a war criminal if one was standing in front of his face. New definition: "War Criminal": anyone who I think is a war criminal. No citation to any international law defining the term. No, just an assumption based on blogs and conspiracy theory websites. Thanks for adding nothing to the dialogue.

William F. Buckley once noted that he was 19 when the Cold War began at the Yalta conference. The year the Berlin Wall came down, he became a senior citizen. In other words, he explained, anti-Communism was a defining feature of conservatism his entire adult life. Domestically, meanwhile, the right was largely a "leave me alone coalition": Religious and traditional conservatives, overtaxed businessmen, Western libertarians, and others fed up with government social engineering and economic folly. The foreign policy battle against tyrannical statism abroad only buttressed the domestic antagonism toward well-intentioned and occasionally democratic statism at home.
