See what happens when you trust CNN. Yes, it's CNN's fault you have access to only one source of information and choose to accept it as faultless. If you don't trust CNN why were you regurgitating misinformation you got from them (of which you haven't yet supplied proof they were misinforming you)....

I would ask of him is what up with their politics up there? Another new prime minister? How many is that in the past 4 years? In the last 4 years we've had ONE Prime Minister - Stephen Harper. He's been pm for more than 5 years actually, although his gov't has been defeated twice in non-confidence ...

And of course, by posing the question, the op is essentially admitting that Iraq was/is a clusterfuck that will be one of Bush's great enduring legacies. Out of curiosity why is a canadian so interested in american politics? Canadian troops went into Afghanistan when Bush abandoned it to invade Ira...

Not leading - led. He kept referring to the action in the past tense. A few paragraphs in "...Our most effective alliance, NATO, has taken command of the enforcement of the arms embargo and No Fly Zone. Last night, NATO decided to take on the additional responsibility of protecting Libyan civilians....

WC,Not sure if you're quoting me or quoting lenny. I don't pretend to know why, the US went into Iraq. There was probably a myriad of reasons. There were 21 rationales given why Iraq needed to be attacked. Fifteen seperate reasons were offered by gwb. The remainder were given by Cheney, Rice, Wolfo...

Ousting a tyrannical leader and bringing democracy to the region isn't a good enough reason anymore? Wasn't that the previous administration's (final) reason for going into Iraq?

He said that when, exactly? Worthless comment without proof. BTW - The picture you used is from a protest in Sri Lanka (can be found on the India Times website) - a close POLITICAL ally of Libya. Not sure it has anything to do at all with religious extremism. Qaddafi is not known for his tolerance o...
