    Sadam did not kick out the weapons inspectors, again you believe the propaganda our news agencies illegally spew on my nation's people....

    He gave the U.N. 1 week to get the inspectors out before he started bombing. If Sadam threw them out he would not have had to do this....

    At the time they would not admit it, still do not think they do. My father fought in Korea, well he worked as an Army Radio operator receiving and transmitting orders and "fake" orders.... He was privy to alot of info....

    It was a well known fact at the time that the Chinese were taking part, nothing secret about it, at least to us and the world

    Fake propaganda picture of a Chinese military personnel supposedly captured in action in Korea. Of course, this picture just part of the propaganda our news agencies illegally spew on my nation's people.

    Almost in that I want the American people to try to stop buying the crap rather than the government forcing it on us. I don't buy anything Chinese unless I have to. Of course, it is getting harder to avoid all the time.

    By the way, the good guys had almost taken over ALL of North Korea until the Chinese intervened.

    Take a look at the map and then the caption on the "propaganda" image. Find "Hyesanjin" on the map after reading the caption on the picture.

    The Chinese came over to help when the war was nearly won.

    Yes, stopping a war that couldn't taken out the North Korean party and put someone else in control.

    Again, it's the hippies fault.

    If North Korea decides to nuke a major city, it doesn't matter if they did their first test under Bush, because these guys could've been dead and gone years ago if hippies had common sense.

    You mean we ONLY attacked the country that attacked us in WWII? Wow, that would come as a big shock to the Germans and the Italians... And of course the North Vietnamese attacked us too, right? And the North Koreans? I guess that explains our involvement in those conflicts too, huh? Hell, I think the Kaiser sucker-punched us too! Yeah, THAT'S why we got into WWI. And let's not forget the repeated attacks against the US by Milosovic (sp?). All that ethnic cleansing happening on the streets of Washington... oh, wait... why did we get into that conflict again?

    The weapons inspectors were kicked out several YEARS before Bush took office. BTW, maybe my memory's getting foggy, but I coulda SWORN Clinton attacked Iraq too. Why, yes! He did!

    The notion of China being to blame for their exports to the US always baffles me... since it is largely US companies seeking to get cheap labor/cheap components rather than build in the US with US labor... and the result is sometimes undertrained people working for quantity over quality... then we have the nerve to blame the Chinese for building the sub-par components as we ask?

    I THINK Clinton attacked something in Bosnia with Tomahawks... and he did Somalia too.

    But we go off-topic from talking about the NKs...

    Actually, this started in a big way with WalMart insisting on ever shrinking prices from their suppliers, no matter the quality. When WalMart went public many years ago (I worked for the brokerage office that brought them public) they had great pride in buying and selling American made products. Sam is probably rolling over in his grave. I do a personal boycott of Chinese products whenever possible, but don't think this should be forced on people by the government. The problem with government tarriffs is that there are always tarriffs (or other goodies) applied to our goods or services in response. This type of action, trade wars, was one of the biggest reasons for the length and depth of the Great Depression.

    What is confusing with what I wrote? Bill Clinton took military action against Iraq as well. He sent in barrages of cruise missiles (the name of the operation is now escaping me). This was a response to the weapons inspectors being kicked out of the country. The point of my post was simply that Bush wasn't the only one who believed that Hussein was a real threat (regime change in Iraq became official US policy under Bill Clinton... not under Bush), and to respond to the silly allegation that the weapons inspectors were never really kicked out - that it was all the feverish imagination of the media.

    It was this attack that Bush derisively referred to when saying that we wouldn't launch a $10 Million missile to blow up a tent so we could hit a camel in the butt.

    Edit - and to back up what I wrote with some 'proof' (which I put in quotes because it really amazes me that memories are this short):

    The fact that it took you 161 words past this comment to explain what you meant is why it was confusing.

    I wasn't arguing, simply wondering what you were talking about.
