The usual bloody-minded nonsense from the nuke-em-all crowd. It would be hilarious if it wasn't so sad.
Without the majority of Iraq's people (Shiites) on your side, all your efforts in Iraq will come to naught. You can't seriously expect they'll remain your allies if you kill them indiscriminately?
Maybe your screen name should be, "mollycoddler?"
As far as WWII is concerned, exactly when is it that we should have declared war on Hitler. Was it when Stanley Baldwin repeatedly failed to respond to Hitler's violations of the Treaty of Versailles. Or was it when Hitler reoccupied the Rhineland and the British and French failed to declare war on Germany as expected by the German High Comman. Or was it after Munich, when Chamberlain snookered Hitler into occupying Czechoslovakia without having to fire a shot. Or was it when the Germans attacked Poland and Britain failed to do anything beyond issuing a declaration of war against Germany. Or was it when the Phony War was occurring between Britain and Germany. Or was it after Dunkirk when through their own inability to respond to Guderian's tactics, the British almost lost their entire expeditionary force.
On the other hand, I have a better idea. Maybe, just maybe Brits should take a deep breath and stop pointing the finger at America when your country is unable to control problems it has let fester in its own backyard
al-Sadr does not represent the majority of Shiites.
al-Sadr is one guy that is directing the killing of our people.
Hardly a "nuke-em all" statement. al-Sadr is a murdering POS that needs to go. You don't negotiate with murderers you bring them to justice.
