    I think the article nailed the real reason on the head:

    Not true in my opinion. It cost Saddam Hussein very little to deceive - move a few vans around, make a few belligerent speeches, fake a few documents - but cost us a hell of a lot to figure that...

    This may be the first time I've ever seen someone use the word "towelhead" and "Farsi" in the same post. Usually people who post "towelhead" think Iranians are Arabs. LOL

    Why do you equate best executives with high pay? If a company is accepting government money, isn't that a pretty clear indicator that the executives aren't the best to begin with?

    Why is it that Democrats are equated with liberals but Republicans and conservatives differentiated based on who you consider a "true" conservative or fake one?

    None of what you wrote here is contested. The question is whether the questionable guns constitute an ability to fight the government.

    The police in Washington D.C. were unable (and if able, unwilling) to firebomb the city in order to flush out the sniper. In a popular uprising, that's not going to be the case.
