"Do you seriously think we are seeking support for military action against Iraq from various European countries because we need the EU's support? Of course not."
And NORMAN SCHWARZKOPF said this: NORMAN SCHWARZKOPF, the US general who commanded allied forces during the Gulf War, joined a growing number of senior US military and political figures yesterday who are opposed to a unilateral invasion of Iraq and said President Bush �should not go it alone�. General Schwarzkopf, now retired from the US Army but still a commanding voice on matters relating to Iraq, said that the success of Operation Desert Storm in 1991 and the expulsion of President Saddam Hussein�s troops from Kuwait was almost entirely based on the existence of a broad international coalition. He said: �In the Gulf War we had an international force and troops from many nations. We would be lacking if we went it alone at this time.�

By constantly trying one ends up succeeding. Thus: the more one fails the more one has a chance to succeed.
So, you're replying to a topic that I closed because it was getting unfriendly, and you're calling people "pretentious". Good start. :roll: A general note for everyone in these discussions: Previously when a thread is closed I've let people get away with simply opening a new topic on a closely-related subject. It seems that usually the new topic just attracts the same problems that required closing the previous thread. In the future I'll probably just delete something like this. Sorry, but the arguments in political threads are getting tiresome. Remember - "a friendly place for Java greenhorns". Most of the time anyway. Cheers...
