My name is Alexander. I agree with what you said regarding motives for US invasion of Iraq. As for what you stated:
"Thatís why about three years ago Saddam had their blessing to sell his oil using Euro. US responded heavy handedly and made an example out of Saddam"
When you say they made an example of Saddam I think you are referring to the ousting of his "regime". As for that, he has not been ousted, he pulled his forces out of defending cities in order to pull the enemy in easier, and then to employ tiresome guerrila warfare. So he has not been made an example of anything, the US is not that powerful, and if they think they can mess with Iran, let them try. They only think they are taking Iraq in as much as they are allowed to by the Iraqi govt conducting anti-US operations in the country.
But I like what you say in general, and it is good for a change to hear words like yours.
By the way, Sadie is a she. And I think sometimes people take her posts the wrong way. She is very nice, and if she comes out to straightforward in her posts, it is incidental. Have a good day,
