The United States won it’s Independence at gunpoint. Then it united at gunpoint in 1861-1865.
Hmmm, lets see…
Germany invaded the US and drove out the British overlords, then demanded that America become a democracy???
France invaded the U.S. to stop the Civil War, and demanded that the Union and Confederacy should unite again?
You’re trying to draw a comparison between America’s role in the Iraq quagmire, and events in American history? If that was your intention, you failed.
Good morning, bradley,
Remember the Iraqi’s asking for help against saddam? If not, look it up. Better yet, talk to people who lived under his regime. Just ask around. It isn’t hard.
I’ll bet you can come up with a 99.9% “I’m glad he’s gone.”
Further, remember the 70% election turnout?
No one from the U.S. coerced them or told them how to vote.
In summary, much like the U.S. asking France to help, the Iraqi’s needed some guns to make Democracy happen.
Unite at gunpoint.
Can we go make Democracy happen in Saudi Arabia at gunpoint too? Pretty please? Can I just start the list of non-democratic countries that we should start aiming our guns at?
Cos you know, they all need a little help.
