Bigger than Beck's " I have a scheme ".
This is just more subterfuge on your part but I guess any source can be questioned when it's convenient.
Subterfuge? I was just asking who you meant. You meant officials. Fair enough...though I really don't think many officials claimed it would be "easy." There may have been some. In some ways they were right about the timeline anyway (duration of combat). What was not anticipated was the post-war security situation. They clearly misjudged that.
Ok show me the quote.
Over the course of our many discussions at that time you claimed many things. I guess it's easy to claim you've said anything when so much time has past. Either that or selective memory loss.
Uh, wow. Making a "claim" is not the same as stating what one posted previously. That's not "a claim." That's what happened. I'm actually surprised that you'd challenge this. It's tantamount to calling someone a liar. In any case, I looked for the thread but was unable to find it. It was called "The American People Now Overwhelmingly Support War" (or something close...that might have been the tag line). There was this whole discussion on the nature of the poll (it was not a scientific poll, which caused quite a stir. A moderator intervened, edited my post for no other reason than to discredit the poll and win the argument (causing a blow-up as you might imagine). It's possible it was just too long ago. In its place I can offer some other polling data on support for the war at the time, which was significant if not actually overwhelming.
A Gallup poll made on behalf of CNN and the newspaper USA Today concluded that 79% of Americans thought the Iraq War was justified, with or without conclusive evidence of illegal weapons. 19% thought weapons were needed to justify the war.

No matter what you'll never admit anything. Even in the face of evidence to the contrary. There are too many like you here who make me realize I'm wasting my time. That's why I don't post much anymore here. The whole thing is a joke and can't be taken seriously.
Sad really since I remember a time when you could have real discussions with people about real issues ( not cartoon crap like Obama's birth certificate ). What horse shit! The only good part about this is that back in the real world it's those cartoon issues that keep those people out of power and will eventually lead to them not being taken seriously by the voting public. Thank God for something good coming out of all of this!
What am I supposed to admit? You seem to get very frustrated when anyone disagrees with you, or in my case...when someone asks a simple question. I decided to unblock you and respond to your post because I thought you might actually want to discuss and debate the issues as well. I stated clearly that I supported the military operation in Libya and I didn't think President Obama needed to go to Congress first. I took issue with how the operation has been explained and communicated. You responded by bringing up Iraq. Huh?
Edit: Re: Cartoon issues. I don't consider the birth certificate issue to be "cartoon." I'm not a birther, but I am starting to wonder why that certificate is not just released to shut the birthers up. I think it's a worthy question. You don't agree?
