If they just redirected their energy toward, say, crosswalk-signal maintenance, America would be 2 percent more livable.”

        Seems difficult to find an exact number of US troops in Iraq, but here's a Nov, 2003 blurb to read while I search for something more difinitive:

        "Pentagon officials say the new plan is aimed at adding manpower to improve security in the short term -- when troop numbers will increase from the current 130,000 to as many as 180,000 -- but also meeting President Bush's goal of shrinking the force to 100,000 by the middle of next year."

              Only Ari Fleischer could make a case that the War on Iraq was a bigger coalition than the Gulf War. :rolleyes:

                    Can I have a lazy-to-English translation?

                      Sure.

                      Gulf War (January 12, 1991)
                      -----------
                      250-183
                      52-47

                      War on Iraq (October, 2002)
                      --------------
                      296-133
                      77-23

                      Looks like W was more effective with his name-calling, that his liberally implying that folks were non-Patriots in an election year worked great.

                          Thanks for the non sequitors, thread hijacker.

                          What does the US congress have to do with the fact that Saudi Arabia was our biggest partner in the Gulf War and wouldn't talk to us during the next one? Oman? UAE? Classic.

                          Weird that those nations didn't feel like Saddam was a threat but America did.
