    Yes, then they can turn and use them on our troops. How stupid would we be?

    How can they use them on our troops if the deal is, we leave after we give the guns to them?

    A better idea would be to have our troops leave & THEN give them the guns, don't cha think?

    Of course, if I would have said, Yes! By all means, let's give them the guns so they can kill each other off. You would have retorted with something like....how can a Christian be rooting for the death of other people.

    I think you just like to argue. :smilewinkgrin:

    What an interesting observation. You admit that you only responded in such a manner as to hinder conversation or counter-points, yet you think I'm the one who likes to argue. Very, very interesting.

    Personally, I just think you don't like to be told you're wrong. :smilewinkgrin:

    Citizen, all I did was out fox you, lol. :flower:

    And, they already have guns anyway, like carpro pointed out. Maliki just wants more guns so the Al-Sadr hit squads can kill more Sunni. Another snow job on the gullible American Administration, like usual.:BangHead:

    I just want our troops out of there. They don't deserve any more American blood or treasure.

    No more guns till intent, purpose and tenacity are more established to our satisfaction. And to become more firmly aligned with American interests.

    In short.....never

    It has been a critisizem on other posts that we armed Iraq and OBL in the past to fight others.


    There is a pretty good chance that we will be back, or at least in the neighborhood in the future.

    I think that a better idea would be for all of those peace loving french, german, russian, arabian, indonesian, indian, and malaysian people would go in and establish the peace and let our troops come home.

    ;)

    Why should they go into a situation that the U.S. created?

    Ummm, are you sure? Because you actually altered your posting due to my participation in the thread. I'd say that's a bigger feather in my cap than it is yours. :smilewinkgrin:
